Phoenix voters are concerned about the sale of flavored tobacco products to youth and support an ordinance to end the sale of all flavored tobacco products in Phoenix, according to a new poll released by the Flavors Hook Kids Phoenix coalition.
The wide ranging coalition of advocates, which includes the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, American Heart Association, the American Lung Association and the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, has joined Phoenix City Councilman Michael Nowakowski, according to a press release, to call for an end of the sale of all flavored tobacco products in Phoenix to reduce youth tobacco use and save lives.
Mr. Nowakowski plans to sponsor a citywide ordinance that would end the sale of flavored tobacco products, including flavored e-cigarettes, menthol cigarettes, flavored cigars and flavored smokeless tobacco.
