EL CAJON (KUSI) – El Cajon city leaders are considering restricting flavored tobacco products.

Community members, educators, parents, youth, and public health advocates are asking the city to adopt policies to eliminate the sale of flavored e-cigarettes, vaping components, accessories and products marketed as flavored.

El Cajon leaders and community members want to protect kids from the dangers of vaping after a mysterious spike in respiratory illness has sickened hundreds of our nation’s youth, and killed at least 16.
