The San Francisco Board of Supervisors will take a final vote Tuesday on legislation banning the sale, production and distribution of e-cigarettes citywide. The measure, which would also ban the shipping of e-cigarettes to San Francisco addresses, is widely expected to pass, and Mayor London Breed has said she will sign it. The ban would go into effect in 2020 and remain in place unless the FDA verifies manufacturers' claims that e-cigarettes are safe for consumers. We'll talk about the ban, who it will affect and how it will be implemented.
