Protecting health

San Luis Obispo County Tobacco Coalition MemberMarch 31, 2014 

Thank you for your recent coverage and opinions about the burgeoning efforts by nicotine merchants to get another generation hooked on their various lucrative and dangerous products.

Happily, San Luis Obispo’s City Council agreed years ago to the happy principle of helping to protect the health and safety of our happy populace — as is their sworn duty. A few updates are due to our local statutes, and all the council members voted to add these to the agenda soon. Hopefully other towns will act on tobacco protections, too. The FDA is feckless on this issue.

The Tribune is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
