Teenage vaping is a growing problem & the rates are reaching epidemic proportions.
Vaping is now associated with serious lung injury and possible dealth, and many governmental leaders, including Governor Newsom and President Trump, have called for people to stop vaping. Locally, we have had many wins, as we have banned all tobacco sales in Beverly Hills and Manhattan Beach, and banned flavors in Los Angeles County and Long Beach, and many other cities are considering similar flavor bans. These local ordinances have also sparked other anti-tobacco legislation to come back, include smoking in public areas and smoking in multi-unit housing. We have a need to identify chapter members who can provide testimony about hazards of smoking/vaping in local city council meetings around Los Angeles County and in other counties in our chapters. Please contact us if you are willing to attend you local or nearby city council meeting to provide testimoney during public comment if a tobacco-related ordinance is being discussed.
