There are currently three e-cigarette stores in Daly City. At least one of them is located near a church and a school.
City leaders are worried e-cigarettes will end up in the hands of young people and not just adults looking for a way to quit smoking. The Mayor thinks the stores are actually marketing e-cigarettes to kids and wants them banned entirely.
He thinks e-cigarette stores are looking to relocate from San Francisco, which is also considering a ban on e-cigarettes.
