Stop the Sale of All Flavored Tobacco
Dear [Decision Maker],
I was thrilled to read our neighboring state of Massachusetts just passed a law to protect kids from all flavored tobacco products, including menthol cigarettes. It's time for New York to do the same.Please co-sponsor S6809 to stop the sale of ALL flavored tobacco.Flavors entice kids to begin using tobacco products. With flavors like cotton candy and mint available, it isn't surprising that we have seen a surge in youth tobacco use. The numbers don't lie. In New York, the rates are continuing to climb as 27% of New York high school students are now using e-cigarettes. It's shameful that the tobacco industry continues to target our kids. But it isn't enough to just restrict flavored e-cigarettes. To ensure kids don't shift to other flavored tobacco products, New York must restrict the sale of all flavored tobacco products, including menthol cigarettes.As your constituent, I urge you to put our kids before Big Tobacco. Please add your name as a co-sponsor to S6809.I look forward to your reply.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP][Your Email]
