Stop SB 140! July 15, 2015 By: Matt 1 California chapters of Smoke-Free Alternatives Trade Association (SFATA) have been urging the vaping community to voice their concerns about Senate Bill 140, slated for voting on July 8th, 2015. SFATA released a memo to Adam Gray, Assembly Member, and to members of the Assembly Governmental Organization Committee to vote “NO” on SB 140. They have been urging you call your elected officials a call and request them to vote “NO” on SB 140. A list of elected officials can be found on the SFATA website, SFATA.org. SB 140 is a bill that was introduced by Senator Leno. In it, Senate Bill 140 states that vaping products should be considered as “tobacco” products. If the bill were to pass, vape testing inside shops would be deemed illegal and unlawful. It would make it more difficult for an individual to try out flavors before making an informed choice. Vape products, shops, and shop owners would be hurt by the bill as it would be categorized as tobacco products and undergo the same scrutiny. On July 8th, 2015, Senator Leno pulled his support of SB 140 in California. It is a small victory for the vaping community but these types of regulations will likely continue to push forward, not only in the state of California, but across the country. We need to unite, educate and push back. If you want to know more about what SB 140 was, please take a look at our infographic below.
