On Monday, December 12, Lori Sontag, Alisha Hopkins and Bruce Barcelo represented The Breathing Association at the Columbus City Council meeting to hear testimony about the proposed $1 million campaign to ban the sale of flavored tobacco products.

After two years of this proposal being up for debate, the vote was unanimous to ban flavored tobacco and vapes. This ban will be a step forward to help our community quit smoking and vaping.

The “Comprehensive Tobacco Cessation Education and Awareness Campaign” will also provide resources and educational programs for those who are addicted to nicotine to help them quit.
