Vote No on Proposition C
*Disclaimer: LWHS does not endorse this individual/cause*
Don’t be fooled by Juul. Tell your neighbors to vote NO on Proposition C!
Help us inform your neighbors about Juul’s misleading and deceptive
measure on the November 5th ballot by joining in on one of our volunteer
events, running continuously every week until the election!
OVERVIEW OF PROP. C
In June of 2018, San Francisco voters passed Proposition E that would end the sale of candy flavored tobacco products in San Francisco. In July of 2019, the Board of Supervisors and the Mayor unanimously voted to place a moratorium on electronic cigarettes being sold in SF until they were approved by the FDA. However, seeing a threat to their products and profits, JUUL devised an initiative that qualified for the ballot, now known as Prop. C.
Proposition C is a deceiving measure, which Juul states will “comprehensively authorize
and regulate” their sales of flavored tobacco products. In reality, Prop. C will repeal existing laws that protect youth, introduce language that will cloud the enforceability of laws pertaining to e-cigarettes, and ultimately protect their profits off of the rise of teenage nicotine addiction.
No on Proposition C is supported by:
● The American Lung Association
● The American Cancer Society
● The American Heart Association
● The African American Tobacco Control Leadership Council (AATCLC)

Juul has had a major hand in creating the youth vaping epidemic. Their flavored products have shown up in schools across the country, becoming synonymous with teen culture. Juul is Big Tobacco, disguised with manipulative marketing and reaching for a new market of users to become addicted to their products.
Juul has spent $4.3 million on their campaign so far, trying to convince the public that their products are a safe smoking alternative for adults. However, the facts speak for themselves. In 2018, a survey funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse revealed a chilling finding: nicotine vaping among American teens grew at the fastest rate ever recorded for any addictive substance. Juul wants to keep their profits from this new wave of nicotine addiction.
We want voters to beware of Juul’s deceptive tactics. The “Yes on C” campaign is funded by a tobacco company desperate to keep selling candy-flavored tobacco. We want to ensure that all youth have an opportunity to grow up tobacco free. Together we can protect the health of the next generations.
Thank you for talking to your neighbors about Proposition C.
