Unidos Por Salud California Health Collaborative started this petition to Community of Wasco

As a resident of Wasco, CA, I support protecting youth from flavored and mentholated tobacco products. 

Here's why:

  • 4 out of 5 teens who use tobacco, started with a flavored tobacco product. 1
  • Flavors improve the taste and reduce the harshness of tobacco products, making them more appealing and easier for beginners to try the product and ultimately become addicted. 2.
  • In 2018, more than 86% of tobacco retailers in California sold flavored non-cigarette tobacco products, over 91% of tobacco retailers sold menthol cigarettes, and, as of 2016, 8 out of 10 tobacco retailers near schools sold flavored non-cigarette tobacco.3
