BANGOR — Some lawmakers say a proposed ban on flavored tobacco products could be back up for discussion when the state legislature reconvenes next year.
The proposed ban on flavored tobacco products has received plenty of controversy since its spotlight in the state legislature this past year, with opposing radio ads and resistance from small tobacco business owners.
The Bangor City Council’s Government Operations Committee said yes to banning the flavored products in the city early in September.
Council Chairman Dan Tremble said anyone who wants to speak on the matter should come to the Oct. 4 council meeting.
The final vote on whether Bangor will ban these products will take place Monday, Oct. 25.
