The past year has been a virtual roller coaster in our ten-year battle to remove mentholated and all flavored tobacco products from our communities.  In 2017, Malia Cohen and the City and County of San Francisco boldly passed historical legislation that restricted the sale of these deadly products city-wide.

Tobacco Giant, RJ Reynolds promptly bankrolled (over 11 million and counting) a referendum to repeal this life saving legislation.  Tomorrow San Franciscans will decide at the polls.
