Chico, Calif. to Ban Flavored Tobacco Sales

Null

At its meeting earlier this week, the Chico City Council voted 5-2 in favor of banning the sale of flavored tobacco products—including menthol—within city limits, as well as establishing a cap on the number of tobacco retailers allowed in the city and creating a minimum packaging size for little cigars.

With passage of its ban, Chico joins Yolo County in banning the sale of flavored tobacco products in unincorporated parts of the county, a ban that was passed in Oct. 2016.

About the author

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
