SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — San Francisco’s city attorney is cracking down on e-cigarettes that some say aggressively target kids drawn to vaping.
Dennis Herrera announced Tuesday that he’s teamed up with Chicago and New York in a letter demanding the U.S. Food and Drug Administration evaluate the impact e-cigarettes have on public health.
Herrera said the review should have been done prior to the product entering the market, but that the agency has given makers until August 2022 to submit applications.
Supervisor Shamann Walton plans to introduce legislation Tuesday banning the sale of e-cigarettes anywhere in the city of San Francisco unless that product has been reviewed by the FDA.
San Francisco was the first in the United States to approve an outright ban on the sale of flavored tobacco and flavored vaping liquids.
