Although it has been illegal for more than 100 years, retailers in La Cañada Flintridge have been willing to sell tobacco to minors at an alarming rate. PC308(a), a state law prohibiting the sale of tobacco to youth under the age of 18, has been on the books for over 100 years. Yet, disregard for the law is affecting the long-term health of our children who may experiment with smoking, because their access to tobacco is being aided and abetted by the tobacco industry and the local retailers selling it to them.

It’s soon going to become more difficult for minors to obtain cigarettes in this town, thanks to a tobacco ordinance passed unanimously Monday night by the La Cañada Flintridge City Council. The ordinance was created by the city of La Cañada Flintridge’s Youth Council, after two years of research, drafting of the Tobacco Retail License ordinance, and through involvement in a city-wide sting operation that showed that seven of the 15 tobacco retailers in La Cañada, when approached by undercover youths — including the former Miss La Cañada — were willing to sell tobacco to underage youths.
