On June 5, San Francisco voters overwhelmingly passed Proposition E banning the sale of flavored tobacco products. At the end of a high-profile, lavish campaign, 68 percent of the city's voters said yes to the sweeping measure, which covers menthol cigarettes, flavored vaping products, hookah tobacco and even flavored cigars. Critics of the flavored products say that the tobacco industry's goal is to target youth and capture a new generation of tobacco users. Tens of thousands of vaping flavors are available, most with candy flavors, such as Smurf Cake, Gummi Bear, Watermelon Wave and Cotton Candy.n Some critics expressed concern that Prop E encompassed even flavored e-cigarettes - which contain nicotine but not tobacco and which are regarded as helpful for those trying to stop smoking regular cigarettes. But the Surgeon General warns that e-cigarettes still contain chemicals linked to lung disease and are as addictive as regular cigarettes. Meanwhile, the FDA, which already banned certain flavors from regular cigarettes in 2017 because of their appeal to youth, is considering a rule that would ban flavored tobacco products.
