Let’s be real, Oakland

(The City of Oakland is considering a flavor ban on all ‘tobacco’ products)

What are they thinking? The Oakland City Council needs to hear from YOU today!

There are serious issues facing the City of Oakland and its residents like crime, homelessness, lack of affordable housing, and gentrification. Instead of addressing these issues, the City Council is focusing on banning menthol cigarettes, flavored vaping liquids, and other tobacco products. It just won’t work, and will cause more problems than it claims to solve.

 The City hasn’t even done an Economic Impact Study to see how many jobs this will cost, nor heard from the Commission on Racial and Economic Justice how this will impact people of color.

Oakland has a lot of problems to face. 

Make your voice heard by sending a letter to your councilmember, telling them to focus on these issues!

 Make Your Voice Heard
 

 Let’s be real! Bans and prohibitions just don’t work…not in the 1920s, not during the failed War on Drugs, and not today.

A Flawed Plan

SAVE THE FLAVE. Adults like flavors too ! Flavors in vape liquid are INTEGRAL to me staying free of cigarettes and liquid with TOBACCO in it. https://t.co/OGMsIjSHvT

Smokers, on average, try 30 times to quit tobacco before success. KEEP AT IT. See here the different cessation merhods and how they rate in terms of success. https://t.co/y62gCkLIPw

@Vapingit I tried to quit SO many times before vaping products were generally available.
Even then, after my first five month of vaping, I fell back onto tobacco, due to a stressful live event.
Finally, thanks to all the support I've gotten, and flavored e-juice, I am tobacco-free.
