In direct reference to paragraph 5.75.020 d ("findings") of the proposed new "chapter 5.75 of the Marin County Code", which argues that black people should not be allowed to make their own choices about tobacco, I must mention that more black people smoke menthols than any other flavour of cigarette. Black people in all fields of endeavor, black people all across the country, were asked "what cigarette do YOU smoke, black person?" Yes, the type named most was menthol. Why not change to menthols in the next thirty days, and see what a difference it makes in your smoking enjoyment?
Discover how mild and good-tasting a menthol can be!

On September 11, the Marin County Board of Supervisors will introduce an ordinance to prohibit the sale of all flavored tobacco products, absolutely no exceptions.

Marin County Board of Supervisors Meeting:
September 11, 2018
9:30 A.M.
Board of Supervisors Chambers, Room 330, Civic Center, 3501 Civic Center Drive, San Rafael, CA 94903

Marin County Supervisors:

Damon Connolly
District 1
(415) 473-7354

Katie Rice
District 2
(415) 473-7331

Kate Sears (lead Carrie Nation in this assault on freedom of choice).
District 3
(415) 473-7331

Dennis Rodoni
District 4
(415) 473-7331

Judy Arnold
District 5
(415) 473-7331

If you meet them, talk to them.

PS.: A careful reading of their literature about the proposed addition to the Marin County Code would suggest that they also hate pipe smokers, the LGBT community, and young adults with mental issues. As well as Hawaiian Natives, Pacific Islanders, and Alaskans.

UPDATE: The reading of Chapter 5.75 and vote a week later have been rescheduled till October, in hopes that the outrage will fade.
That's plenty of time to call your supervisor.

NOTE: Readers may contact me directly:
All correspondence will be kept in confidence.
