Sale of flavored, roll-your-own cigarettes illegal under new rules

The state Board of Equalization recently released information notifying wholesalers and distributors that it is illegal to sell flavored cigarettes or roll-your-own under the new federal U.S. Food and Drug Administration provision of the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act.  Under federal law, these products can no longer be manufactured, imported or sold in the United States and could be seized by federal, state or local law enforcement authorities.  Information: www.fda.gov/TobaccoProducts; ag.ca.gov/tobacco/directory.php
