Sarasota County targets flavored-tobacco products

Sarasota County Commissioners will discuss Tuesday a resolution aimed at ridding the county of candy-flavored tobacco products.

Saying those products are aimed at attracting children to tobacco, the county drafted the resolution, which would urge vendors to stop selling candy-flavored tobacco.

The FDA has found that 20% of kids across the country have seen advertisements for such products.

Their flavors include vanilla, midnight berry and chocolate chip cookie dough.
