Sacramento – Today, Assemblymember Roger Dickinson (D-Sacramento), introduced Assembly Bill 1500. The bill seeks to curb tobacco use, especially among young people, and improve public health by banning internet sales of tobacco and e-cigarettes.
"Although great progress has been made to curb teen smoking, the use of e-cigarettes and the internet availability of tobacco products pose a serious risk," said Assemblymember Roger Dickinson. "AB 1500 will make it impossible for young people to order e-cigarettes or other tobacco products online thereby safeguarding them from the dangers of smoking," he added.
