Tell Politicians in Santa Fe: Tobacco Tax Increases and Flavor Bans Hurt Local Businesses

Politicians in Santa Fe are considering banning the sale of flavored tobacco products including mint and wintergreen dip and menthol cigarettes.

Legislators need to hear from you so they understand how a flavor ban and massive tobacco tax increase would impact local retailers and wholesalers statewide.Tell Santa Fe you oppose this massive tobacco tax hike and any attempt to ban flavored tobacco products including mint and wintergreen dip and menthol cigarettes.

Redondo Beach: Tell your council member to oppose harmful tobacco regulations!

The Redondo Beach City Council is considering adopting a tobacco retail licensing ordinance that may ban the sale of flavored tobacco products, and menthol cigarettes, and establish a cigar minimum pack size. These regulations go too far!

If passed, local retailers would see sales drop as their adult customers travel to competitors in nearby towns to make tobacco purchases—while there, they may also buy other products that your store depends on!  This measure hurts Redondo Beach businesses and hits your bottom line.

Your voice matters. Tell your City Council Member to VOTE NO!
