What's Changed in Fresno County?

Check out some of the changes that happened in the County between the 2013-2016 Healthy Stores for a Healthy Community surveys.

Fresno County

  • In July 2015, the City of Selma passed a local policy to reduce storefront window and clear door advertising for all stores to no more than 15%.
  • The city of Selma passed a density ordinance restricting tobacco retailers to no closer than 600 feet of a residential zone, any public or private Daycare, Kindergarten, Elementary School, Middle School, High School, Public Library, Church or Public Park or any other tobacco retailer.
  • Eight youth conducted a Photovoice in the City Selma to document the reality of the retail environment in their community. Youth presented to the findings of the Photovoice to the Selma School Board. Discussion about possible solutions is ongoing.
  • Excessive storefront advertising was reduced overall in Fresno County but in some of the local communities it increased.

Statewide

  • All CVS pharmacies and the Raley’s supermarket chain stopped selling tobacco altogether.
  • In 2016, two new state laws became effective that changed how stores sell tobacco. One increased the legal age to sale for tobacco products from 18 to 21. The other required e-cigarettes to be treated the same as a tobacco product, closing a loophole.
  • On November 8, 2016, California voters overwhelming approved Proposition 56, which added a $2 tax on cigarettes, and an equivalent rate on other tobacco products and e-cigarettes.
  • By 2014, all of the Big Tobacco companies jumped into the e-cigarette business, pouring tens of millions into advertising. And, a lot more stores, 2 out of 3, are selling e-cigarettes in California today than three years ago.
