Flavored Tobacco

San Francisco Health Code, Article 19Q:  Prohibiting the Sales of Flavored Tobacco Products was approved by San Francisco voters on June 5, 2018 and went into effect July 21, 2018


A flavored tobacco product is any tobacco product which contains an ingredient that imparts a characterizing flavor.   A “Characterizing flavor” is a distinguishable taste or smell, other than the taste or smell of tobacco. The Flavored Tobacco Products Sales Ban poster includes descriptions and examples of flavored tobacco products.

 

Please refer to the SFDPH DRAFT Rules and Regulations for Retail Tobacco Sales for more information regarding flavored tobacco enforcement and questionable products.

 

SFDPH maintains a Flavored Tobacco Products List to assist with identifying flavored tobacco products.
