Please End the Sale of Flavored Tobacco Products with No Exemptions
Dear [Decision Maker],
As an El Monte resident and a supporter of the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN), I applaud the City Council for its work to protect youth by considering ending the sale of all flavored tobacco products, including menthol cigarettes and hookah, in El Monte. The dramatic increase in e-cigarette use among youth is being driven by flavored tobacco products. 80 percent of youth who have ever used a tobacco product started with a flavored product. The tobacco industry has aggressively marketed flavored products to youth to try to addict a new generation.
Thank you, [Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP][Your Email]
