We are supportive of the overall effort to enable the development of responsible standards for the production, distribution and use of cannabis products. However, this policy is evolving against the backdrop of a vaping epidemic among middle and high school youth. The Centers for Disease Prevention report:

  • The United States is seeing the continued surge in use by young people
  • Current use of e-cigarette, or vaping, products increased by 900% among U.S. middle and high school students between 2011 and 2018
  • More than 5.2 million young people in the United States reported current use, including 27.5% of high school students and 10.5% of middle school students.

Reports suggest the percentage of students in Berkeley is even higher.

Against, the backdrop of this growing epidemic,  we urge you not to permit the proliferating of "vaping lounges." Vaping lounges will result in the further proliferation of the products that are driving the current epidemic, Further, they will serve to socially normalize vaping activities that have indeterminate health consequences.
