Proposition 31: Tobacco

Proposition 31 is a referendum on California Senate Bill 793 (SB 793), which was passed in Aug. 2020 to ban the sale of flavored tobacco products. The law is yet to go into effect due to this referendum.

If citizens vote “yes,” the contested legislation would be upheld, and the ban on flavored tobacco products would be implemented. The Committee to Protect California Kids is leading the campaign for upholding the legislation, along with the support of Governor Gavin Newsom, the Democratic Party of California and the California Teachers Association. According to the California Legislative Analyst’s Office, California could lose up to $100 million in lost tax revenue due to SB 793.

If voters vote “no,” the law would not go into effect and flavored tobacco products would remain legal in the state. Californians Against Prohibition has led the campaign for voting down the legislation, alongside the Republican Party of California and the National Association of Tobacco Outlets.
