CORNING, Calif. - Students in Corning are asking the city council to consider a ban on tobacco flavored products. Now the City of Corning is looking into a possible ban.

Corning City manager Kristina Miller says the City Council directed staff to look more into it.

“Banning tobacco would be great because I feel like this is an invitation for kids to try this candy-flavored product,” said Angel Ramirez, a resident of Richfield.

A California Health Kids Survey revealed that in 2019, 22.8% if kids in Tehama County reported using tobacco flavored products.

Miller says, once staff completes their research, they will bring their findings to the council.

Corning High School students gave a presentation of the effects of tobacco flavored products at last week’s city council meeting.

We've been warming today under a sunny sky, and the heat will only get more intense going forward. Today we warmed back to seasonal averages, and it will get much hotter through the weekend and beyond.
