CAADE Opposes SB 140 (Leno) Electronic Cigarettes

Re: SB 140 (Leno) Electronic Cigarettes

At its April, 2015 Board Meeting CAADE took an OPPOSE position on SB 140.

The bill would define electronic cigarettes as a tobacco product, severely limiting their use and subjecting them to high taxation. Ecigs contain no tobacco, have been proven to be 60% more effective than patches and gums for smoking cessation, and are an evidence-based tool for smoking cessation. CAADE is on record supporting ecigs as a harm reduction approach to smoking cessation, and has opposed similar legislation (e.g. SB 648) in the past.
