Candy Flavored Tobacco Resolution Passed by Town of Longboat Key

On October 7th 2013, SWAT youth from Manatee and Sarasota counties and a member of the Tobacco Free Partnership of Sarasota County, presented to the Mayor and Commissioners of the Town of Longbaot Key concerning the issue of candy flavored tobacco products. At the Town of Longboat Key Commission meeting on November 4th 2013, the Commission voted to pass a resolution discouraging local vendors from selling candy flavored tobacco products and asking community members not to buy these products. With the passing of this resolution, 100% of the municipalities in Sarasota County have passed resolutions discouraging the sale of candy flavored tobacco products. Congratulations to Sarasota County SWAT youth on this great accomplishment!
