What's Changed in Santa Clara County?

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

Santa Clara County

  • Santa Clara County used the California Department of Public Health’s flavored tobacco products campaign, “Kids and the Tobacco Predator, “to run local TV, transit, and digital ads, resulting in an estimated 8.3 million times people saw the educational ads.
  • In 2015, Santa Clara became the first county in California to pass a countywide ban on flavored tobacco products including menthol. The ban covered all tobacco retailers in the unincorporated areas of Santa Clara County.
  • Between 2013 and 2015, Tobacco Retail Licensing ordinances in the Cities of Gilroy, Morgan Hill, and Saratoga were adopted doubling the number of those types of ordinances in Santa Clara County.

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.
