New York City To Ban Flavored Cigars
Posted: October 14, 2009
New York City's attack on tobacco continues as the City Council passed its own tobacco legislation today that is even more strict than the FDA's recent ban on flavored cigarettes.
The council, by a count of 46-1, voted to ban the sale of all flavored tobacco in the city, with the exception of tobacco used in pipes and hookahs. This goes a step further than the recent FDA ban, which banned flavored cigarettes (including cloves, but not menthol), because it bans flavored little cigars and chewing tobacco. Mayor Bloomberg has 10 days to decide to sign or veto the measure. If signed, the ban could go into effect in 120 days.
The ban comes weeks after the city's health commissioner announced a proposal to ban smoking in city parks and beaches.
