Over the last few years, we have seen several Maine cities and towns ban the sale of flavored tobacco products.  Bar Harbor, Bangor, Brunswick, Portland, and South Portland have all banned the products over concerns that they are targeted at children.

You can add another Maine municipality to the list: Falmouth.

According to WCSH 6, during a meeting on Monday, town councilors voted 5-2 in favor of the ban.  This makes Falmouth the sixth town in the state to ban the sale of such products.

While many people are in favor of such bans, some are concerned that the ban affects legal users of flavored tobacco products.  According to the article, Falmouth Town Councilor Tommy Johnson, one such dissenter, pointed out that the people who the ban is meant to protect cannot legally purchase the products.

According to the Maine Legislature website, you need to be at least 21 years of age in order to legally purchase tobacco products in the State of Maine.

The ban will go into effect on March 12, 2024.

The Central Maine City of Hallowell has reportedly also been discussing a potential ban of the products.
