Voters in Washington County, Ore. Approve Flavored Tobacco Ban


During Tuesday’s primary election, voters in Washington County, Ore. approved a ban on the sale of flavored tobacco that had been approved by the county’s Board of Commissioners in November 2021 but put on hold in January 2022 after a petition was filed to put the matter on the ballot.

As of Wednesday morning, 76.6 percent voters were supporting the ban by way of voting no on the ballot question, which asked if the ban should be repealed.

The new law will prohibit the sale of flavored tobacco products and flavored synthetic nicotine as well as price promotions, coupons and discounts.

Washington County is located directly west of Portland. It has a population of around 600,000 people.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA’s Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I’m a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
