TOBACCO IS CHANGING:
TAKE ACTION

Everywhere you look, our children are surrounded by kid-tempting nicotine products and marketing tactics. In all its forms, nicotine can addict young people and keep them hooked for life. It can damage their growing brains, leading to memory and attention problems. It can also cause serious illnesses like cancer or heart disease, and amplify stress, anxiety and depression. 

That’s why it’s important to take actions that help protect teens’ physical and mental health—in all the spaces you and the kids in your life live, work, and play. Here's how you can help.  It can make all the difference.

Dear ______________,

My name is ________________ from_____________________ 

 

Youth vaping remains a serious health concern in our community. Flavors appeal to children and leads to increased initiation among youth, and ultimately to a lifelong addiction to nicotine. California has some of the strongest laws in the nation to protect youth from tobacco products, including vaping. However, these state laws only work if they are properly carried out. 

 

Please enforce the flavors ban ( SB793) to help continue to protect our youth from a lifetime of addiction.

Sincerely,
