Bonta Joins Attorneys General Urging FDA to Restrict Tobacco Products

On Wednesday, California Attorney General Rob Bonta joined a bipartisan coalition of 31 state attorneys general in urging the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to take action to protect public health and address youth tobacco use by more effectively regulating electronic cigarettes and other emerging tobacco products. Specifically, the coalition of attorneys general are calling on the FDA to utilize its regulatory authority to eliminate access to all youth-appealing flavors (including menthol), limit nicotine levels, and restrict marketing activities.
