What's Changed in Lake County?

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

Lake County

  • Due to the heightened awareness around the tobacco retail environment there has been an increase in the participation of the Lake County Youth Coalition. Over 20 youth participated in local events to educate their peers regarding Big Tobacco’s advertising and product placement strategies aimed at youth.
  • Catastrophic fires impacted local and county decision makers, retailers and the community at large as they dealt with the crisis, causing tobacco retail licensing policy work to shift to a lower priority as the community recovered.

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.
