WE NEED YOUR HELP TO SAVE VAPE IN OUR COMMUNITY.
Board Meeting to Vote on BAN of ALL FLAVORED VAPE PRODUCTS in Ventura County (uncorp areas) scheduled for December 10th.
ASK THEM TO WORK WITH LOCAL BUSINESSES TO REGULATE NOT BAN THESE PRODUCTS!
TELL THEM YOUR VAPE STORY!
This is important as it sets the tone for every city in the county. Including Thousand Oaks and Simi Valley.
We have 3 meetings this week with Board Members or their Staff. Our Petition and efforts have worked. We need you to help keep showing support for our fight to offer these products in our area. We want reasonable regulations to protect our youth but allow adults to continue to Utilize these Flavored Vape Products.
(Please be respectful and courteous when contacting your representative or their staff)

- Recent Heath Concerns regarding “VAPE”:
We need to draw the clear distinctions between Nicotine based E-Liquids and Black-Market THC Vapes that have been identified as the primary if not only cause of these illnesses and deaths. Despite what is depicted in recent media coverage. Facts from state reports confirm 90% of recent illnesses were caused by Illicit Black Market and counterfeit THC Cartridges and not nicotine based E Liquids.
- Youth access and use of ALL Vape Products both Nicotine Based and those that have illicit drugs by design or by modification.
Majority of youth obtain these products online and from others / friends. Limiting sales of these products to age restricted locations would be sufficient and reasonable legislation to protect youth at a local level.
We are asking for local leaders to work with its citizens and local businesses to address the concerns surrounding the Local Nicotine Based E Cig / Vape Industry.
To ban access of these Nicotine Based Vape / E-Liquid Products while not addressing Traditional Harmful Tobacco Products and not addressing THC Cartridges would not be seen as reasonable or justified regulations.
As more local cities ban these products we will be forced to use home made products, order online or possibly return to use of traditional tobacco products.
