Why is the City of Napa enacting this ban?

The new municipal ordinance language mirrors SB 793, which was approved by Governor Newsom in September and will become state law effective January 1, 2021. In addition to mirroring the State law, the City Council supports these restrictions which will help the public health, safety, and welfare of the residents and visitors to the City of Napa. The Council expressed interest in reducing underage tobacco use, including e-cigarette and vaping devices.
