Lung Association Applauds Passage of California Proposition 31 Prohibiting Dangerous Flavored Tobacco Products

 In response to California’s overwhelming support of Proposition 31 to end the sale of flavored tobacco products, including menthol cigarettes, in the state, American Lung Association president and CEO, Harold Wimmer issued the following statement: 

“Once again, Californians resoundingly voted in support of protecting kids and standing up to Big Tobacco.  With Yes on 31 passing, California will finally be able to implement its strong flavored tobacco law. We call on states and localities nationwide to continue to pass comprehensive laws to end the sales of all flavored tobacco products, including menthol cigarettes and e-cigarettes, and for the FDA to quickly move forward to finalize its rules on menthol cigarettes and flavored cigars.”
