Dear [Decision Maker],

Unicorn puke. Gummy bear. Cotton candy. Mango. Birthday cake. S'mores. Mint. Menthol. Make no mistake, the 15,500 kid-enticing flavors of tobacco are a marketing weapon used by Big Tobacco to lure our children into a lifetime of addiction. It's disgusting.

As your constituent and a volunteer with the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, I want to stress the importance of ending the sale of all flavored tobacco products, including e-cigarettes and menthol cigarettes.



From mango flavored e-cigarettes to menthol cigarettes, Big Tobacco has targeted our kids with their fruity-flavored and minty-flavored poisons. Vermont must fight back this session by ending the sale of all flavored tobacco products including menthol cigarettes. Given the fact that 64% of kids who use e-cigarettes use menthol or mint, there is a very real concern that these kids will simply switch to menthol cigarettes if menthol e-cigarettes are banned but menthol cigarettes are not. We need a comprehensive bill in Vermont to stem the epidemic.

I urge you to share this information with your colleagues and champion the passage of legislation that ends the sale of ALL flavored tobacco products.

I look forward to hearing your response on this important issue.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
