San Francisco voters crush Juul

After putting $18 million into a campaign to try to trick San Francisco voters into letting Juul rewrite our public health laws, Juul only got 19.5% of the vote.

In other words, 80.5% of San Franciscans uphed the flavor ban, effective T21 legislation, and the Board of Supervisors' decision that e-cigarettes should not be sold or delivered in SF until they have won FDA authorization.

That is an even bigger defeat than RJR suffered when they tried to overturn the flavor ban.

This victory should help speed the spread of comprehensive e-cigarette control legislation at the local and state level.

Congratulations to all the health advocates who worked so hard against what some people through were impossible odds.
