What a bad, knee-jerk over-reaction. People injured themselves by purchasing shoddily made THC/CBD based vaporizing containers. Actual research into the risk of vaping indicates that it's 95% less harmful that tobacco: Web Link

Thank goodness that you can still buy tobacco cigarettes in Santa Clara County.

This is so typical of the county supervisors. There is good news and bad news. The good news is that These silly policies apply only to non incorporated area and hence apply to maybe a few retail firms. (Similar to the ban on kids toys at FF places, which applied to only one McDonalds). The bad news is the supervisors then claim that cities should follow their lead and pass these silly policies.
