This frequently updated news digest on the subject of Public Health highlights key articles from major news publications. The digest is a free service of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. FDA Sends E-Cigarette Companies a Warning Associated Press, 09/10/2010 The Food and Drug Administration is lighting a fire under the electronic cigarette industry to work with the agency to legally market the devices and is cautioning other companies that their sales and manufacturing practices violate federal law. The FDA said yesterday it sent warning letters to five companies that make e-cigarettes or components for the plastic and metal devices that heat a liquid nicotine solution in a disposable cartridge, creating vapor that the smoker inhales. Food for Thought: Report Details 85 Safety Recalls Philadelphia Daily News, Queen Muse, 09/09/2010 Tainted cheese, lettuce and waffles are among the 56 food recalls that have affected Pennsylvania since stronger food-safety legislation stalled in Congress in July 2009, according to a study released this week. The study, conducted by the Pennsylvania Public Interest Research Group (PennPIRG), the Consumer Federation of America and the Center for Science in the Public Interest, found that 85 recalls occurred in that time period nationwide. Prevent the Senate From Gutting Prevention The Huffington Post, Matthew L. Myers, 09/08/2010 With many Americans struggling in a shaky economy, Congress is understandably working to address the concerns of small businesses as the new health reform law is implemented. But efforts to relieve small business of new paperwork requirements in the law must not jeopardize one of its most critical provisions a fund to prevent serious and costly diseases. Editors Note: This piece was authored by Matthew L. Myers, president of the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids. U.S. Smoking Rate Hasn't Changed, CDC Says Los Angeles Times, Thomas H. Maugh II, 09/08/2010 After 40 years of continual declines, the smoking rate in the United States has stabilized for the last five years, with one in every five Americans still lighting up regularly, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Tuesday. Moreover, more than half of all children are exposed to toxic, secondhand smoke and 98% of those who live with a smoker have measurable levels of toxic chemicals in their blood stream, setting them up for future harm from cancer, heart disease and a variety of other ailments.

Remember the lines last winter for hard-to-find flu shots, the closed schools and the craziness about an H1N1 pandemic? Health officials say all those are things of the past: The pandemic is officially over, there's plenty of vaccine available already, and this year, one shot will deal with most of the different flus expected this winter. 2010 All rights reserved.

Health & Science - 15 September 2010

U.S. adults support restrictions on e-cigarettes based on potential risks - The Medical News September 15, 2010 According to the makers of electronic cigarettes, they are new devices that allow users to inhale nicotine but not the toxins of tobacco cigarettes. Advocates hail e-cigarettes as a possible quit-smoking aid. But e-cigarettes have been criticized by the United States Food and Drug Administration as potentially toxic since they haven't been tested in FDA-recognized scientific trials. Also of concern: there are no age restrictions on sales of these new nicotine-containing products. According to a report released today by the University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children's Hospital National Poll on Children's Health, public concern about e-cigarettes is already quite high. In fact: 91 percent of adults in the U.S. think manufacturers should be required to test e-cigarettes for safety 85 percent favor prohibiting the sale of e-cigarettes to minors 82 percent think that the FDA should regulate e-cigarettes like other nicotine-containing products 68 percent of adults think e-cigarettes should have health warnings like tobacco cigarettes and other nicotine products. "It is clear from this poll that U.S. adults are not waiting for scientific evidence of adverse health effects of e-cigarettes before asking that

they be regulated and restricted," says Matthew M. Davis, M.D., director of the poll and associate professor of pediatrics and internal medicine in the Child Health Evaluatio n and Research Unit at the U-M Medical School. "Rather, they support restrictions on e-cigarettes based on potential risksnot just immediate health effects, but also the possibility that e-cigarettes may lead youth toward later use of tobacco cigarettes." e-Cigarettes are battery-operated devices that look like cigarettes but do not burn tobacco. Instead, e-cigarettes have replaceable cartridges of liquid containing nicotine, which is inhaled as a vapor along with flavors like tobacco and chocolate. e-Cigarettes are available in stores, mall kiosks and over the Internet. This latest information from the poll adds to the mounting public dialogue about e-cigarettes, which has so far consisted of claims and counter-claims by opponents and proponents but minimal scientific data, Davis says. Last week, the FDA sent letters to five manufacturers of e-cigarettes, warning them of violations of federal laws regarding new drugs. The FDA state d that the companies claim that e-cigarettes can help tobacco smokers quit but offer no data recognized by scientific experts. In this latest poll conducted by Davis and his colleagues, 42 percent of adults are very concerned that it's easy for youth under 18 to buy ecigarettes. About half of adults (49 percent) are very concerned that ecigarettes may increase nicotine and tobacco use among children, and 17 percent of parents are very concerned their children will try ecigarettes. "Adults' high level of concernespecially about the chance that ecigarettes will lead to use of nicotine and tobacco by youthlargely explains their broad support for many potential new laws and regulations," says Davis, who is also associate professor of public policy at the U-M Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy. According to Davis, this latest poll indicates widespread public support for initiatives that are being considered by som e state and local jurisdictions, including warning labels on e-cigarettes, bans on ecigarette sales to minors, advertising restrictions in youth media and limits on indoor smoking of e-cigarettes. "Given these results," says Davis, "in order to gain more public support, makers of e-cigarettes will need to provide more detailed evidence about safety and make clear their intentions about marketing to youth. Meanwhile, critics of e-cigarettes may want to move now on legislation, while they have strong public backing."

Hi Pam,

"Neal, Scott" "Pam Wessel-Estes" <pwesselestes@shd.snohomish.wa.gov> 9/15/2010 3:50:20 PM RE: Regional/Lg county policy considerations

Thanks for getting back with me on this. I am running to another BOH Tobacco Policy Committee meeting at 1pm so I'll try to be as detailed as I can. Also of note is that we are trying to keep these details under the radar right now because we don't want any publicity on what we are doing specifically until the time comes to reveal the plan. Essentially we are being purposefully vague around phase 2 so that the media doesn't run with another "nanny state" type of story that could damage our chances of success both locally and also statewide. Phase 2 will be focused on all three of the following issues: 1. Point of sale signage: Policy requiring all tobacco retailers to post a sign that shows a graphic health warning (picture) about tobacco use and also include the Quitline number. Details still need to be worked out about size and placement requirements. 2. Electronic Cigarettes: Policy prohibiting the sale of e-cigs. We would craft language that specifically prohibits the sale of these products, but could leave the door open to some similar "FDA approved" type of product if one ever becomes available and approved by FDA. 3. Flavored Other Tobacco Products: Policy prohibiting (or restricting) the sale of these types of products. This one is much more difficult to craft language around since determining what is "flavored" and what isn't can be difficult. We recognize this policy area may also be potentially preempted by state law or at least in an area that is more gray than black or white on that issue. First thoughts on this may be to focus on the sale from Distributor to Retailer since we do not believe we are preempted (or at least likely aren't) at that level of the supply chain. Again, these will all be more flushed out in the coming weeks/months, but ALL are being moved forward and developed by our BOH Tobacco Policy Committee for a vote in the December 2010 BOH meeting. I'm happy to discuss more details over the phone as to how this might work toward overall statewide legislative strategy too. Thanks again for your support and willingness to see if this is something your county might want to join in on. The more counties moving these policies forward, the better. Unfortunately we are obviously facing a very tight timeline too, which I recognize may be a barrier. Thanks Scott

Instead, e-cigarettes have replaceable cartridges of liquid containing nicotine, which is inhaled as a vapor along with flavors like tobacco and chocolate. e-Cigarettes are available in stores, mall kiosks and over the Internet. This latest information from the poll adds to the mounting public dialogue about e-cigarettes, which has so far consisted of claims and counter-claims by opponents and proponents but minimal scientific data, Davis says. Last week, the FDA sent letters to five manufacturers of e-cigarettes, warning them of violations of federal laws regarding new drugs. The FDA state d that the companies claim that e-cigarettes can help tobacco smokers quit but offer no data recognized by scientific experts. In this latest poll conducted by Davis and his colleagues, 42 percent of adults are very concerned that it's easy for youth under 18 to buy ecigarettes. About half of adults (49 percent) are very concerned that ecigarettes may increase nicotine and tobacco use among children, and 17 percent of parents are very concerned their children will try ecigarettes. "Adults' high level of concernespecially about the chance that ecigarettes will lead to use of nicotine and tobacco by youthlargely explains their broad support for many potential new laws and regulations," says Davis, who is also associate professor of public policy at the U-M Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy. According to Davis, this latest poll indicates widespread public support for initiatives that are being considered by som e state and local jurisdictions, including warning labels on e-cigarettes, bans on ecigarette sales to minors, advertising restrictions in youth media and limits on indoor smoking of e-cigarettes. "Given these results," says Davis, "in order to gain more public support, makers of e-cigarettes will need to provide more detailed

evidence about safety and make clear their intentions about marketing to youth. Meanwhile, critics of e-cigarettes may want to move now on legislation, while they have strong public backing."

Greetings, I work at Public Health - Seattle & King County in the Tobacco Prevention Program and we are working with our King County Board of Health to consider banning e-cigarettes. I saw in the National Association of Local Boards of Health that the Northampton BOH is considering a similar policy. I'm curious to hear how your process has gone. Has there been any significant opposition or support?

I'm very happy to be able to post the following information.

E-Cigarettes Banned on Domestic Flights Passengers Protected From Toxins, Carcinogens Despite frequent claims by e-cigarette [e-cig] sellers that their product can be used to self administer nicotine on airplanes where smoking is prohibited, all U.S. domestic airlines ban the use of these untested products which the Food and Drug Administration [FDA] has declared are illegal, reports public interest law professor John Banzhaf, Executive Director of Action on Smoking and Health (ASH), who led the campaign to ban their use in flight. http://www.aolnews.com/health/article/despite-ad-claims-you-... E-cigs give off a vapor which is a mixture of nicotine (a deadly and addictive drug which can contribute to fatal heart attacks), propylene glycol (a respiratory irritant used in antifreeze and known to cause respiratory tract infections), and other substances the FDA has labeled "carcinogenic" and "toxic." It appears t hat these same substances are then also exhaled where those around the user -- including the elderly, those with special sensitivities, as well as infants and toddlers -- are also forced to inhale them. Previously the FDA had warned that: e-cigs pose acute health risks which cannot seriously be questioned because they contain toxic chemicals. It also said that: * e-cigarette users suffer from a wide variety of potentially serious symptoms including racing pulse, dizziness, slurred speech, mouth ulcers, heartburn, coughing, diarrhea, and sore throat

* nicotine [one of the two major chemicals used in the product] in high doses can be dangerous and even fatal * the toxic chemical diethylene glycol was found in the e-cigarettes which were tested * various mutagenic, carcinogenic, and genotoxic chemicals were also present in the products * the cartridges con taining the nicotine and other toxic chemicals, many of which come from China, are subject to none of the manufacturing controls required for FDA-approved nicotine-delivery products [like nicotine gum, patches, inhalers, sprays, etc.]. Subsequent to the FDA's warning, independent scientists have warned about additional potential dangers to users of e-cigs: www.newsrx.com/press-releases/11551.html The Air Force, and the Marine base at Quantico, have joined other jurisdictions in banning the use of e-cigarettes [e-cigs] at least in the workplace, citing the potential health dangers to users from toxic chemicals as set forth in a memo by the Air Force Surgeon General. He also noted a concern originally expressed by ASH that these "illegal" devices can also be used to surreptitiously administer drugs other than nicotine. ASH had previously reported ads for e-cigs which administer Cialis and "potent" marijuana. www.cigarettesreviews.com/fda-may-ban-marijuana-ecigarettes As the Surgeon General's memo warned: "Commanders also need to be aware that the cartridges used in these devices are replaceable and could be used to discreetly deliver substances other than nicotine." New Jersey and Suffolk County, NY, have banned the use of e-cigs wherever smoking is prohibiting, and New York as well as several other states are considering similar bans. Many countries have also banned or severely restricted the sale of the product outright, as have several states. Banzhaf, who first forced airlines to provide no-smoking sections, and ultimately to ban smoking entirely, said that the health advantages these bans brought should not be subverted by an untested product which forced persons in the vicinity of the user to inhale nicotine, propylene glycol, and a host of other toxic, mutagenic, and genotoxic substances, and thereby serve as guinea pig s to see how serious the adverse health effects are.

I will reply to the ASH press release here since it was posted here. Quote from PR below: "all U.S. domestic airlines ban the use of these untested products which the Food and Drug Administration [FDA] has declared are illegal" Fact: This statement has no basis in fact. Firstly, the FDA is not a judge, jury or officer of the law and cannot therefore declare a product illegal. A federal judge declared "This case appears to be yet another example of FDA's aggressive efforts to regulate recreational tobacco products as drugs or devices under the FDCA". No one with any authority to do so has declared the product illegal. The FDA has suggested it would like the product regulated as a drug delivery device and a Federal judge stated it does not seem to qualify as such and should be regulated as a smokeless tobacco product. I have personally had contact with customer service at 2 dozen or more airlines in the past 18 months and I have found that a handful have a policy that allows the crew to make the final determination on allowing use and most of the rest have no specific policy on e-cigarettes. I contacted the author of the AOL News article when it was posted and let him know that this and many of his other "facts" were incorrect. He apologized, but made no move to correct the misinformation. I would like to ask how one can call nicotine a deadly and addictive drug and then suggest that smokers use the nicotine patch and gum when those products contain nicotine - "a deadly and addictive drug"? Quote from PR below: "propylene glycol (a respiratory irritant used in antifreeze and known to cause respiratory tract infections)" Fact: Did you know that propylene glycol is used in medication for lung transplant patients because it prevents respiratory infections? (http://www.liebertonline.com/doi/abs/10.1089/jam.2007.0626) Quote from PR below: "ASH had previously reported ads for e-cigs which administer Cialis and "potent" marijuana".

Fact: Paper and coca cola cans can deliver marijuana as well, shall we ban them also? List from PR below: "carcinogens", "toxins", "toxic chemicals","mutagenic" or "genotoxic" substances have supposedly been found in e-cigarettes. Fact: To be considered carcinogenic, a product must contain a level of nitrosamines which could ACTUALY cause cancer. Quoted from PR below: "Many countries have also banned or severely restricted the sale of the product outright, as have several states." Fact: Not one single state has banned sale of e-cigarettes to adults in the USA.

Team, Here's the latest draft of the Tobacco Policy priorities. In light of a few calls today, our strategies around preemption and flavored products may be changing. Nicole, I know that you want this to go in the packet for the coalition and the deadline is noon tomorrow. I think that it is really close in terms of content but I want to be really careful about how we talk about these politically sensitive issues. Scott can you give this a look and give Nicole the green light? I think that the section on youth access still needs some work. Unfortunately, Sarah, Anne and I will be out of the office tomorrow. Also -- and maybe more key -- after today's new direction, we don't call out e-cigarettes in here anywhere yet. Do we want to add them now?

Scott-- for you reference, this document has evolved a fair amount. Here is where the youth access piece was earlier today: The tobacco industry knows that young people are more likely to start using tobacco and the majority of people who use tobacco become addicted when they are young. Big tobacco uses strategies like flavored products to get youth to start smoking. Flavored tobacco products have the appeal of candy and mask tobaccos harshness. Like cigarettes, they contain nicotine which is the addictive component of tobacco.. To prevent youth from starting to use tobacco products we plan to: * Restrict the sale of flavored tobacco products that lure youth into becoming addicted * Decrease access to tobacco products near places where youth like schools and parks * Increase knowledge of dangers of tobacco by requiring health messages at point of sale

Thanks, Joy

RWJF News Digest: Public Health


This frequently updated news digest on the subject of Public Health highlights key articles from major news publications. The digest is a free service of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Beef Recall Heats Up Fight to Tighten Rules The New York Times, William Neuman, 09/02/2010 For the first time in this country, public health officials have linked ground beef to illnesses from a rare strain of E. coli, adding fuel to an already fierce debate over expanding federal rules meant to keep the toxic bacteria out of the meat supply. Cargill Meat Solutions recalled 8,500 pounds of hamburger on Saturday after investigators determined that it was the likely source of a bacterial strain known as E. coli O26, which had sickened three people in Maine and New York. Food Safety Groups Slam USDA Egg Graders at Farms in Recall USA Today, Alison Young, 09/02/2010 U.S. Department of Agriculture staff regularly on site at two Iowa egg processors implicated in a national salmonella outbreak were supposed to enforce rules against the presence of diseasespreading rodents and other vermin, federal regulations show. Though USDA says its authority was limited, the agency's egg graders were at Wright County Egg and Hillandale Farms at least 40 hours a week including before the outbreak inspecting the size and quality of eggs inside processing buildings. Electronic Cigarettes Attracting Smokers; But FDA Says Product Should Be Regulated Associated Press, Michael Felberbaum, 09/02/2010 Galen Kipe has not smoked a cigarette in more than three months. He could not kick his habit of 17 years with nicotine patches or gum. He finally put away his Marlboro menthols for good by swapping them for electronic cigarettes, which look like the real thing and give him his nicotine fix but do not contain tobacco. Vector-Borne Diseases Growing as Threats to U.S. Public Health: Climate Change, Travel Linked to Illness The Nations Health (American Public Health Association), Kim Krisberg, 09/01/2010 Last fall, an old resident returned to the beaches of Florida, though it certainly was not welcome and officials are determined to see its visit cut short. The unwanted visitor is mosquito-borne dengue, which made headlines this summer after public health officials found that 5 percent of Key West residents showed recent exposure to the virus. Pediatric Group Issues New Flu Shot Guidelines HealthDay News, 08/30/2010 All children and adolescents 6 months of age and older should receive the annual trivalent influenza vaccine this flu season, according to updated recommendations from the American

Academy of Pediatrics. Youth Smoking Rates Now Stalled HealthDay News, 08/27/2010 Although teen smoking rates dropped in the past decade, they have stalled in recent years, which means increased tobacco prevention efforts are needed, a new U.S. government study shows. Between 2000 and 2009, cigarette smoking rates declined from 28 percent to 17.2 percent among high school students, and from 11 percent to 5.2 percent among middle school students, said researchers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 2010 All rights reserved.

The edits you just sent were on an older version and there have been changes made since then (the version with the date 9.29 was most current). I'll compare the two documents and get this figured out. I thought you were making formatting changes to have this match HEAL. We can have one of our support staff take care of that. Can you send the HEAL document? Thanks, Joy -----Original Message----From: Sadow-Hasenberg, Nicole Sent: Thursday, September 30, 2010 11:39 AM To: Sadow-Hasenberg, Nicole; Neal, Scott; Ross-Viles, Sarah; Hamilton, Joy; Pearson, Anne Subject: RE: CPPW tobacco prevention priorities 9 23.doc P.S. - Can you please be more specific in the problem statement about inequities.

<> Team, Here's the latest draft of the Tobacco Policy priorities. In light of a few calls today, our strategies around preemption and flavored products may be changing. Nicole, I know that you want this to go in the packet for the coalition and the deadline is noon tomorrow. I think that it is really close in terms of content but I want to be really careful about how we talk about these politically sensitive issues. Scott can you give this a look and give Nicole the green light? I think that the section on youth access still needs some work. Unfortunately, Sarah, Anne and I will be out of the office tomorrow. Also -- and maybe more key -- after today's new direction, we don't call out e-cigarettes in here anywhere yet. Do we want to add them now?

Scott-- for you reference, this document has evolved a fair amount. Here is where the youth access piece was earlier today: The tobacco industry knows that young people are more likely to start using tobacco and the majority of people who

use tobacco become addicted when they are young. Big tobacco uses strategies like flavored products to get youth to start smoking. Flavored tobacco products have the appeal of candy and mask tobacco's harshness. Like cigarettes, they contain nicotine which is the addictive component of tobacco.. To prevent youth from starting to use tobacco products we plan to: * Restrict the sale of flavored tobacco products that lure youth into becoming addicted * Decrease access to tobacco products near places where youth like schools and parks * Increase knowledge of dangers of tobacco by requiring health messages at point of sale

Thanks, Joy

Here is where the youth access piece was earlier today: The tobacco industry knows that young people are more likely to start using tobacco and the majority of people who use tobacco become addicted when they are young. Big tobacco uses strategies like flavored products to get youth to start smoking. Flavored tobacco products have the appeal of candy and mask tobacco's harshness. Like cigarettes, they contain nicotine which is the addictive component of tobacco.. To prevent youth from starting to use tobacco products we plan to: * Restrict the sale of flavored tobacco products that lure youth into becoming addicted * Decrease access to tobacco products near places where youth like schools and parks * Increase knowledge of dangers of tobacco by requiring health messages at point of sale

Thanks, Joy

Health district urges e-cigarette restrictions


The sale of electronic cigarettes to minors should be banned, according to a resolution from the Spokane Regional Health District. The devices are designed as cigarette look-alikes, though they deliver nicotine in the form of a vapor rather than burning tobacco. Electronic cigarettes are marketed as a smoking cessation tool. But health officials are wary of the claims and the safety of the liquid chemicals that are inhaled as vapor. The health districts resolution calls for county officials to outlaw the sale of the devices and component parts to minors. The resolution also seeks to limit the marketing of electronic cigarettes to minors. Its the first of its kind in the country, according to the health district.

"Neal, Scott" "Johnson, Gareth" <Gareth.Johnson@kingcounty.gov> 10/8/2010 1:20:17 PM RE: FDA State & Local Officials Discussion Mtg

Yes states could pass similar laws (many states already have done that, plan to do it, or already had state or local laws that are more strict than the FDA). It gets a bit tricky though with some of the provisions because the FDA is currently engaged in some legal challenges on the advertising pieces. Currently what is the most critical is the youth access enforcement piece as we already have a strict youth access law that fines both clerks and retailers when sales to minors occur. So the FDA says that states could follow up FDA inspections resulting in a sale to a minor with state fines for the same inspection that they would receive a warning or fines from the FDA on the federal level. Of utmost concern here is that the violations during any FDA inspections at least get included in the state's history so that if the we or the LCB conduct our own inspections and find additional violations, that would bring about higher penalties including potentially suspending their license. What I don't want to see is a completely separate track for FDA inspections and state inspections on the same retailer as that makes no sense to me and also gets really confusing for the retailers. Unfortunately we learned that the LCB at least currently has decided to keep these FDA checks on a completely separate track. I shared my concerns with them at our meeting yesterday and will continue to request they reconsider. With regards to E-Cigarettes, we are not preempted from enacting local regulations on e-cigs by state law because these products are not tobacco products. Scott

I've done a little bit of research on colleges/universities and the policies are all over the place - some include e-cigs in their definition of "tobacco products" while others call it out explicitly in their policy ("Smoking, including e-cigarettes, is prohibited...."). These options, however, don't consider the possibility that the FDA may regulate these products in the future (who knows, we may actually be promoting e-cigs as NRT some day), which means that without amending the policy, e-cigs (even as NRT) would still be banned. I've received some guidance on this from the CA Youth Advocacy Network who is working on smoke-free colleges, and here is the language they suggested: "The use of nicotine products not regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for cessation use is prohibited on campus. FDA approved nicotine replacement therapy products (e.g., gum, the patch) can be used on campus." My concern with this option (although better than the others) is that I can't help but wonder what happens if the FDA decides to regulate e-cigs as "tobacco products" and not "cessation support devices?" If regulated as tobacco products, would e-cigs be covered under the policy language posed above? Or, if we truly don't know what the FDA plans to do, is it best to keep policy language broad --e.g., "The use of nicotine products not regulated by the FDA is prohibited on campus." I don't know if other sectors (hospitals, parks, housing) are asking for assistance on this, but I imagine they will...especially if we are moving forward with the BOH on this. I think it would be really helpful to have model policy language and guidance for our partners. I, unfortunately, have not been able to find any model policies to my liking (considering the issues I raise above) -- I may be looking too far into this...but I just wanted to see what other people thought about this. Thoughts? Any little bit helps (I've given myself a headache pondering this)! -Molly

I agree that we have the legal authority to regulate this sort of product if we can draw a health-related reason to do so, and I don't think that would be too difficult to do. I'm more concerned about the strategic concerns being raised by ACS.

Gary, We gathered additional info from a couple of meetings today on the topic of e-cigarettes. We need to discuss next steps given we meet tomorrow afternoon with the BOH tobacco policy committee. We need to consider the following: 1. Should we identify a clear position our dept. wants to take on this issue and propose this to the BOH Tobacco Policy Committee OR should we provide this level of detail to the committee and have an open discussion and see where that takes us regarding the level of policy brought before the BOH? 2. What is our dept's position on waiting until 2011 to move this policy forward given the latest concern from our state partners?...some of this may be tempered or eliminated depending on what final policy might be adopted. Conference call with ACS regarding statewide agenda and how local e-cig policy may interact: ACS is now feeling somewhat concerned that even passing policy on e-cigarettes may have some negative effect on the state agenda in January as opponents to a youth access bill could use our recent action to provide an 8_19_2011

FDA call regarding e-cigs: FDA is handling each e-cig product case by case and examining each to determine what they are. They have evaluated approximately 700 different products and deemed ALL of them as a drug and device required to be regulated by the FDA (not as a tobacco product). They continue to issue warning letters to companies and the ecigarette association regarding these findings. It does not sound like they would ever consider these products as tobacco products under their current system. Their evaluation of these products includes reviewing all marketing and company produced materials, perceptions of product, how products are used, and any claims the manufacturer makes about the product. So even if an e-cigarette was marketed simply as an alternative to smoking regular cigarettes, the FDA would still likely consider this a drug and device, given it contains nicotine. The case against the FDA's enforcement of these products is currently in the appellate court and they had no update on any expected timeline for a decision. They did however state that one of the two companies that brought the initial case has dropped out. Smoking Everywhere has dropped out, yet still has mall kiosks selling their products here locally. Regarding local regulations, the FDA noted that others have begun by considering a full prohibition of the sale of these products, but have scaled back their regulations to simple age restrictions due in part to the e-cigarette and vapor coaltions speaking out on behalf of the product and its use for people to quit smoking regular cigarettes.

The FDA's conclusion that e-cigs are not tobacco products is actually useful to us insofar as it bolsters the assertion that the proposed rule is not preempted by state law since we are not trying to regulate the sale or marketing of tobacco. The Board of Health would still have authority to regulate e-products pursuant to its authority to enact rules as are necessary to promote the public health given the risks that unregulated nicotine delivery devices can pose.

From: "Neal, Scott" To: "Johnson, Gareth" <Gareth.Johnson@kingcounty.gov> "Krieger, James" <James.Krieger@kingcounty.gov> Date: 10/20/2010 6:38:29 PM Subject: RE: E-Cigarette Update...needs discussion/decision My thoughts: Althought the industry could point to anything we do locally to use as ammunition in an argument to defend preemption, ultimately they are going to use that regardless of whether or not we do anything locally. My feeling is that as long as we don't push for a full prohibition of the sale of these e-cigs, this probably is a non-issue. Some factors to consider here are: * The typical tobacco industry is not (currently anyway) behind these e-cig products...so it could be likely they are even on our side with respect to regulations around these products. * We can draft this regulation very specific to these products being nicotine delivery devices unapproved by the FDA, therefore there is no inidcation that these products are even safe to use (leaning on the FDA's own warning letters and other information they've gathered from their evaluation of these products) * We would need to make sure that our media messages are consistent aroudn these products being nicotine delivery devices (not tobacco products). * By adopting reasonable regulations that essentially equate regulations on thse products to similar regulations on cigarettes (age restrictions, no free samples, inclusion to smokefree public places law, possibly limiting sale to adult only venues) that it is difficult for the "vapor industry" to cry foul (especially since virtually all of these products self label for adult use only) and I believe wouldn't likely cause alarm by those defending preemption. I'm interested in other idea/views though. Scott

I agree that we have the legal authority to regulate this sort of product if we can draw a health-related reason to do so, and I don't think that would be too difficult to do. I'm more concerned about the strategic concerns being raised by ACS. I think we need to decide if this is so important to do now that we are prepared to risk failing to achieve the repeal of preemption in the coming session. I think this is the crux of the issue right now. Thoughts on that? ________________________________ From: Neal, Scott Sent: Wednesday, October 20, 2010 2:53 PM To: Krieger, James; Johnson, Gareth Cc: Wood, Maria; Hamilton, Joy; Bennett, John; Ross-Viles, Sarah; Pearson, Anne; Muhm, Jennifer; Allis, Donna

If e-cigs are not considered a tobacco product by fda...do we have any ability to regulate? I see it as both figure out what our dept position and then share with boh all the issues including alternative options...which include no action.

Gary, We gathered additional info from a couple of meetings today on the topic of e-cigarettes. We need to discuss next steps given we meet tomorrow afternoon with the BOH tobacco policy committee. We need to consider the following: 1. Should we identify a clear position our dept. wants to take on this issue and propose this to the BOH Tobacco Policy Committee OR should we provide this level of detail to the committee and have an open discussion and see where that takes us regarding the level of policy brought before the BOH? 2. What is our dept's position on waiting until 2011 to move this policy forward given the latest concern from our state partners?...some of this may be tempered or eliminated depending on what final policy might be adopted. Conference call with ACS regarding statewide agenda and how local e-cig policy may interact: * ACS is now feeling somewhat concerned that even passing policy on e-cigarettes may have some negative effect on the state agenda in January as opponents to a youth access bill could use our recent action to provide an example to how local policies will be far reaching and inconsistent across the state. They suggested that it might be best to wait on this agenda until after the legislative session.

FDA call regarding e-cigs: * FDA is handling each e-cig product case by case and examining each to determine what they are. They have evaluated approximately 700 different products and deemed ALL of them as a drug and device required to be regulated by the FDA (not as a tobacco product). They continue to issue warning letters to companies and the ecigarette association regarding these findings. It does not sound like they would ever consider these products as tobacco products under their current system. Their evaluation of these products includes reviewing all marketing and company produced materials, perceptions of product, how products are used, and any claims the manufacturer makes about the product. So even if an e-cigarette was marketed simply as an alternative to smoking regular cigarettes, the FDA would still likely consider this a drug and device, given it contains nicotine. * The case against the FDA's enforcement of these products is currently in the appellate court and they had no update on any expected timeline for a decision. They did however state that one of the two companies that brought the initial case has dropped out. Smoking Everywhere has dropped out, yet still has mall kiosks selling their products here locally. * Regarding local regulations, the FDA noted that others have begun by considering a full prohibition of the sale of these products, but have scaled back their regulations to simple age restrictions due in part to the e-cigarette and vapor coaltions speaking out on behalf of the product and its use for people to quit smoking regular cigarettes.

Thanks Scott

Luckily, the letter to the ECA provides general information as to why the products are in violation of the ACT. The 5 letters to the manufacturers only differ slightly in the evidence portion of the letter and the nature of the claims made. Generally they all claim that their product reduces nicotine cravings or withdrawal symptoms, and some claim to help people quit using nicotine all together by slowly reducing the amount of nicotine in the vapor inhaled. All such claims are the basis for why the product is classified as a drug and device. Details and the justification is in the document I drafted and attached in this email. > > >

Hi Tina, As we proceed to address e-cigs here locally, we has another couple of 8_19_2011

Page 2 follow up questions for you. Now that the FDA has determined that the e-cig products that have been tested must go through official FDA approval process as a "drug and device"...what happens now? As we all know, these products continue to be offered for sale in a growing number of retail locations. 1. What does it really mean to be identified as a product that must go through FDA approval? Does that mean the product is illegall in the U.S. without this approval? In reference to the five warning letters, those products identified in the letters would require a New Drug Application (NDA) to be legally marketed in the U.S. Please refer to our letter to the ECA for a description of the approval process (http://www.fda.gov/downloads/Drugs/GuidanceComplianceRegulatoryInformation/UCM225263.pdf)

2. Does the FDA have enforcement authority to address the importation of these products? If so, are there ongoing efforts to address the importation? If so, does the FDA consider this action to be successful at elminating/reducing the importation of these unapproved products? FDA continues to review and refuse importations of electronic cigarette products on a case-by-case basis when the agency finds that they are unapproved drug/device combinations. Since the first FDA documented shipment of electronic cigarettes imported to the US, FDA has prevented over 800 shipments from entering the country.

3. What about on the retail end...does the FDA have enforcement authority there and if so what is being done to address the ongoing sale of these identified products?

-----Original Message----From: Neal, Scott [mailto:Scott.Neal@kingcounty.gov] Sent: Wednesday, October 27, 2010 11:34 AM To: Walther, Tina Subject: Follow up e-cig questions Importance: High

Hi Tina, As we proceed to address e-cigs here locally, we has another couple of follow up questions for you. Now that the FDA has determined that the e-cig products that have been tested must go through official FDA approval process as a "drug and device"...what happens now? As we all know, these products continue to be offered for sale in a growing number of retail locations. 1. What does it really mean to be identified as a product that must go through FDA approval? Does that mean the product is illegall in the U.S. without this approval? In reference to the five warning letters, those products identified in the letters would require a New Drug Application (NDA) 8_19_2011

Page 2 to be legally marketed in the U.S. Please refer to our letter to the ECA for a description of the approval process (http://www.fda.gov/downloads/Drugs/GuidanceComplianceRegulatoryInformation/UCM225263.pdf)

2. Does the FDA have enforcement authority to address the importation of these products? If so, are there ongoing efforts to address the importation? If so, does the FDA consider this action to be successful at elminating/reducing the importation of these unapproved products? FDA continues to review and refuse importations of electronic cigarette products on a case-by-case basis when the agency finds that they are unapproved drug/device combinations. Since the first FDA documented shipment of electronic cigarettes imported to the US, FDA has prevented over 800 shipments from entering the country.

3. What about on the retail end...does the FDA have enforcement authority there and if so what is being done to address the ongoing sale of these identified products? Since the majority of these products are imported into the country, we are focusing our efforts on reviewing these entries on a case-by-case basis.

Joy and Anne... I think you should be aware of this situation and chain of emails. I have talked with Gary about this action plan and we plan to set up this meeting with the Intiman theater soon. However I have also asked John and Eric to do some checking on other theater policies around Seattle to gauge how many have similar "herbal only" policies for use during performances. This is a topic that will likely come up during our meeting on Tuesday with DF regarding the BOH action on e-cigs and I want all of us to be on the same page. Given a number of reasons, I'm really not interested in carving out any exemption for e-cig use during performances as we begin drafting BOH code language restricting where these can be used. Let me know if you have any specific thoughts on this issue as well. Scott

From: Johnson, Gareth Sent: Thursday, October 28, 2010 7:51 AM To: Neal, Scott Subject: FW: Intiman Plan Scott, I think it will be helpful for you to read the string below, bottom to top, for context. I think David's instruction for now is pretty clear. If not, let's talk.

From: Fleming, David Sent: Wednesday, October 27, 2010 7:19 PM To: Johnson, Gareth Subject: Re: Intiman Plan I would like you to have an informational only meeting with them as a first step. NOT an enforcement meeting or even a "you are in violation and we are here to educate you". Share the complaint with them and assess their reaction and the extent to which they see this as a problem. Let me know if you have questions and if not what the outcome is.

From: Johnson, Gareth To: Fleming, David Sent: Wed Oct 27 16:08:56 2010 Subject: RE: Intiman Plan None so far. Knowing that the former executive had ruled out enforcement related to theatrical smoking, I told Scott we should not initiate contact until such time as we knew if we had approval to move on this. If we are going to talk with Intiman Theater, we will need to talk with the host of other theaters in King County. I didn't think such a large scale effort should commence prior to learning if we were cleared to tell them that our review of this issue in light of a recent complaint had led us to the conclusion that such smoking is prohibited by state law and the BOH code. At the point we share that we will also offer consultation about how to make the transition and what legal alternatives are available to portray smoking in a performance. The complaint that initiated this review is included in one of the attachments to the original message I sent you on this topic. The complaining citizen first made his complaint known to Intiman Theater who told him that a Seattle City Code provision exempted theatrical performances from the smoking ban. That was accurate prior to the implementation of the current state smoking restrictions late in 2005, but the new state law trumped the old city code. So they are aware of the complaint from the citizen but not, so far as we know, of that fact that the citizen brought the complaint to us or that we are contemplating our next move. 8_19_2011

From: Fleming, David Sent: Wednesday, October 27, 2010 1:31 PM To: Johnson, Gareth Subject: Re: Intiman Plan Please review for me the nature of the educational interactions we've had with them. Are they familiar with the recent event Scott describes?

From: Johnson, Gareth To: Fleming, David Sent: Wed Oct 27 09:16:16 2010 Subject: RE: Intiman Plan I have talked with Scott about the plan of action and in general I agree with it. I certainly agree that there is nothing in our state law that would exempt smoking on stage. I was somewhat surprised by the legal analysis that Anne prepared, but given we aren't the only state with such all inclusive language, I do believe she got this right. Where I might differ from Scott, at least at first glance, is how simple he makes it sound to move from education and consultation to enforcement. As I told him, we worked for four years with Qwest before getting to the point of enforcement so we can certainly expect to spend months working with the theater owners/managers to help them come to terms with this change. I think it's the right thing to do, but we don't need to move precipitously to achieve the full change. I'm more concerned with Dow's reaction to this. I think he's not going to be comfortable with it, although it doesn't strike me as so much of a change in policy as Qwest was. Before we get to that point, we need to talk this through with Jane McKenzie and quite likely Kevin Wright. Jane has raised the first amendment issue and I want to have a meeting with her with Scott and Anne participating to bring her up to speed. I didn't see any point in calling that meeting until we got your feedback as to whether you are comfortable with our proceeding.

David, as you will see from the message below, we believe smoking of any sort in prohibited by WA state law in any public place/place of employment and this this extends to theatrical performances. As I noted in an earlier message on the topic of smoking in theaters, there is some history on this and I think you should consider briefing the county executive before we move forward on steps to contact the Intiman or any other theater. Let me know if you would like to meet to discuss this further.

Subject: FW: Intiman Plan

Hi Gary, We put this information together to cover the issue about smoking in theaters. Take a look and let me know if you have any questions. This should cover the rationale for our proposed plan of action regarding smoking of non-tobacco in theaters. Thanks Scott

Smoking in Theaters
Background: The Intiman Theater currently uses tobacco-free herbal cigarettes during some performances to portray smoking on stage. They use herbal cigarettes in part to ensure that they are not in violation of the state and local smoking bans. At a recent performance, a member of the public attended a performance at the theater and was unaware that smoking would be permitted on stage. After a brief period of exposure, the individual suffered respiratory distress and was forced to leave the theater. This person has indicated that they had to go to their doctor for medical attention. Interpretation of Law: KCBOH Chapter 19.03 prohibits smoking in all public places and places of employment within King County. Although Chapter 19.03 is located in Title 19 of the Health code (Tobacco Products), the prohibition on smoking applies beyond the smoking of tobacco products to the carrying or smoking of any kind of lighted pipe, cigar, cigarette, or any other lighted smoking equipment. (Emphasis added.) The program concludes that KCBOH 19.03 prohibits the smoking of herbal cigarettes in public places insofar as they can be classified as either a subclass of cigarettes or lighted smoking equipment. Because the smoking of herbal cigarettes emits particles which could be harmful if ingested, this interpretation meets the expressed intent of the code to protect and preserve the peace, health, safety, and public welfare. The program has also reviewed whether the enforcement of Chapter 19.03 in theatrical productions would violate the right to free expression guaranteed under the U.S. or state constitutions. The Colorado State Supreme Court recently examined this question in Curious Theater Co. v. CO Dept. of Public Health, 220 Pd.3d 544 (2009). There, the court concluded that Colorados smoke-free air law, which also prohibits the smoking of any lit product, was a permissible content-neutral restriction on the time, place and manner of conduct, and was justified by a legitimate government interest in protecting people from exposure to secondhand smoke. The program believes that Chapter 19.03, as enforced against a theatrical production, would withstand a First Amendment challenge. Like the Colorado smoke-free air law, Chapter 19.03 is a content-neutral restriction on conduct that is motivated by a desire to protect and preserve the public health. Further, theater owners may continue to depict characters that smoke through the use of fake or prop cigarettes.

A full account of all constitutional arguments raised against smoke-free air laws can be found in: Legal Authority to Regulate Smoking and Common Threats and Challenges: 2009.
<<Legal Authority to Regulate Smoking.pdf>>

Plan of Action The program proposes to contact the theater and educate them regarding the applicability of the law to smoking herbal cigarettes on stage. The program will offer to discuss acceptable ways that smoking can be portrayed on stage without violation KCBOH Code 19.03 and will be available to review any potential alternatives the theater
8_19_2011

suggests. The program will work with the theater to identify the shows where smoking will be portrayed and request access to the theater during such performances as necessary to ensure compliance with the smoking ban. In the event that the theater continues to permit the use of smoking materials such as herbal cigarettes, the program will enforce KCBOH Code 19.03 in accordance with standard protocol.

"Hamilton, Joy" "Neal, Scott" <Scott.Neal@kingcounty.gov> 10/29/2010 6:54:00 PM BOH update

Just a quick heads up about the very sobering special meeting of the BOH this afternoon on the budget. DF's presentation was sickening to say the least -- the proposed cuts are just horrendous. Frankie Manning gave an impassioned speech (to the choir she acknowledged) about how we need to champion PH and how it is so crucial to maintain funding and to share the message with the public how important PH work is. Julia Patterson suggested that the board consider focusing on this topic (much like they spent 6 months on menu labeling) in the upcoming year. This conversation will be important to keep in mind in the coming months. CM Patterson also brought up the December meeting and mentioned that they would be talking about e-cigs policy (the media had long since left the room by then). Nothing was mentioned about the PH funding resolution so I'll check in with Maria about this. I'm really glad I went to the meeting today -- and will plan to go to all BOH meetings in the future so that we are aware of the context and players for our important work with them! Joy

The theme of this newsletter is: "Why is Tobacco Prevention Still Important"? * Because tobacco prevention programs work (examples, areas where funding has been cut but usage still increasing, etc). Anne, would you be interested in writing up something about this? If not, Joy has volunteered as well - it just sounded like something you might have some insight on! * To prevent youth from tobacco use (some general stats (such as x amount of smokers begin before age of 18, etc). Lindsey's section * Because tobacco companies are constantly evolving their marketing and products to hook new users (information on the Camel campaign (include image?) as well as new products, + e-cigs as a not-tobacco company but still a new product on the market). Molly's section * Because everyone deserves to be tobacco-free (reviewing tobacco-free policy for housing/providers/etc, list of sites/agencies already there, or planning to). Maybe create a graph showing the number of agencies in each group? Collaboration between Lindsey, Paul, Nori, & Karen. * Separate section: BOH Update (December e-cigs. January - Youth) Joy's section * Everyone: If you would like to include a picture or image with your article, Mike usually helps out with the artistic side of things :-) Mike, is it fine if people check in with you directly about any images they would like to include? Due date for everyone's articles is DECEMBER 6th, except for Joy's BOH stuff (due December 27, but if you have it done before the 27th that would be ideal!) Please email me your articles directly when they are complete, or save them to this folder: G:\Administration\Newsletter\Content\Jan 2011.

The Board of Health Tobacco Policy committee met recently and has endorsed a number of policies for a vote at the December BOH meeting concerning electronic cigarettes and other nicotine delivery devices. The three policies are: 1. restrict the sale of emerging nicotine delivery devices and products containing nicotine to adults 18 years of age or older; 2) prohibit providing free (sampling) or heavily discounted e-cigarettes, nicotine delivery devices, and products that contain nicotine and; 3) prohibit the use of e-cigarettes and similar smoking devices in places where smoking is prohibited by law.

RWJF News Digest: Public Health


This frequently updated news digest on the subject of Public Health highlights key articles from major news publications. The digest is a free service of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Who's Afraid of the Flu? Not Moms TIME Healthland, Bonnie Rochman, 11/02/2010 In a typical flu season, up to 150 U.S. children die; last year's numbers were even worse: the swine flu pandemic killed 1,100 kids. Still, one-third of U.S. moms don't plan to get their children a flu shot this season, according to a survey by the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases (NFID). Study: Alcohol More Lethal Than Heroin, Cocaine Associated Press, Maria Cheng, 11/01/2010 Alcohol is more dangerous than illegal drugs like heroin and crack cocaine, according to a new study. British experts evaluated substances including alcohol, cocaine, heroin, ecstasy and marijuana, ranking them based on how destructive they are to the individual who takes them and to society as a whole. E-Cigarette Seller Accepts California Marketing Limits Reuters, Steve Gorman and Jeff Roberts, 10/30/2010 A distributor of electronic cigarettes has agreed not to target its sales and advertisements to minors or to claim its products are safe alternatives to tobacco, under a consent judgment reached with California. The settlement, announced on Friday by state Attorney General Jerry Brown, comes weeks after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said it intended to regulate e-cigarettes, batterypowered devices made to look and feel like conventional cigarettes. EDITORIAL: Outsourcing Food Safety St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 10/29/2010 On June 8, an inspector from a private company called AIB International completed a two-day food safety audit of Wright County Egg Farm in Iowa. He awarded it a superior rating, the highest possible score. That month, nearly 900 people around the country were diagnosed with salmonella from eggs produced at the farm and another nearby facility. California's Whooping Cough Epidemic Hits Latino Babies Hardest TIME Healthland, Meredith Melnick, 10/29/2010 An old disease, pertussis or whooping cough, reemerged this summer in California and crept into the Pacific Northwest. At least one infectious disease expert explained the epidemic by calling the region the "epicenter of vaccine refusal." Meanwhile, another pattern has emerged: 9 of the 10 infants who have died from infection were Latino. Death Takes a Cig Break

New York Post, Sarah Makuta and Rita Delfiner, 10/29/2010 New Yorkers have been kicking butts -- and their eight-year dip in lighting up has been accompanied by a 17 percent drop in smoking-related deaths, the city reported yesterday. The adult smoking rate toppled 27 percent from 2002 to 2009 -- and smoking-related deaths fell from about 8,700 to 7,200, the city's Health Department said. 2010 All rights reserved.

Perfect timing as I'm working on this now. Apart from the supporting statements that we might put into a staff report, I think it would also be good to put a few sentences relating to intent into the law itself. Section 19.03.030 from the smoking in public places law is a great model of something that explains the BOH's motivation in a concise way. 19.03.030 Findings - intent. The Board of Health recognizes that exposure to second-hand smoke is known to cause cancer in humans and is a known cause of other diseases including pneumonia, asthma, bronchitis, and heart disease. Citizens are often exposed to second-hand smoke, and are likely to develop chronic, potentially fatal diseases as a result of such exposure. Due to the health hazard secondhand smoke poses to those exposed, the Board of Health adopts this regulation in order to protect the health and welfare of all citizens, including workers in their places of employment. (R&R 07-03 6, 2007). Could you put together a few sentences for the e-cig intent paragraph? I imagine it would address the emergence of the products, the risks they pose to kids, and the risks of sampling more generally. I don't think it needs to address the smoking in public places aspect as I'm dealing with that through simple amendment to the definition of "smoking." Let me know if you want to chat more about it.

So I wanted to send out a quick recap of our upcoming newsletter and timeline! This newsletter will have more of a general theme, and basically will be one main article that is broken up into different sections. The theme of this newsletter is: "Why is Tobacco Prevention Still Important"? * Because tobacco prevention programs work (examples, areas where funding has been cut but usage still increasing, etc). Anne, would you be interested in writing up something about this? If not, Joy has volunteered as well - it just sounded like something you might have some insight on! * To prevent youth from tobacco use (some general stats (such as x amount of smokers begin before age of 18, etc). Lindsey's section * Because tobacco companies are constantly evolving their marketing and products to hook new users (information on the Camel campaign (include image?) as well as new products, + e-cigs as a not-tobacco company but still a new product on the market). Molly's section * Because everyone deserves to be tobacco-free (reviewing tobacco-free policy for housing/providers/etc, list of sites/agencies already there, or planning to). Maybe create a graph showing the number of agencies in each group? Collaboration between Lindsey, Paul, Nori, & Karen. * Separate section: BOH Update (December e-cigs.

Hi Robert,

"Neal, Scott" rbeaumier@spokanecity.org 11/3/2010 5:51:06 PM FW: Spokane City Attorney

I have been working recently with my colleague Christopher Zilar in the Spokane County Tobacco Prevention Program and I am aware of the Spokane Board of Health's resolution asking cities to pass local regulations restricting e-cigs to be sold to adults only. Paul Davis at the DOH Tobacco Prevention Program mentioned that to me in a phone conversation about what we are planning to do here in King County. I'm happy to hear that Spokane City Council is considering taking this action. Since it sounds like we are working on similar agendas, I thought we should connect to see if we could benefit from sharing ideas when it comes to drafting code regulations. Essentially we've been working with our BOH Tobacco Policy Committee the last few months and have identified three main areas of focus regarding e-cigs that our BOH will consider at the Dec. 16, 2010 meeting. 1) restrict the sale of emerging nicotine delivery devices and products containing nicotine to adults 18 years of age or older; 2) prohibit providing free (sampling) or heavily discounted e-cigarettes, nicotine delivery devices, and products that contain nicotine and; 3) prohibit the use of e-cigarettes and similar smoking devices in places where smoking is prohibited by law. Our Code drafter Anne Pearson (cc'd on this email) is currently working on drafting code language for these areas and I thought it would be good to connect you and her on this to see if we can find some common language. Let me know what you think. I'm not sure how far along you are in the process or what month your city council is planning on considering this regulation. Thanks

Very helpful! I am taking a slightly different drafting approach to some aspects of the code. For example, I'm using a slightly broader definition of e-cig, am requiring id checks for anyone over 26 (to be consistent with new FDA rule for tobacco), am prohibiting free sampling to all people (not just to kids), and am not inclined to make it a crime for kids to buy cigs (preferring to just go after the retailers instead.) Should we all schedule a time to speak with him to compare drafts and thinking since it would probalby make sense to have the ordinances be as aligned as possible? Or, I'm happy to just give him a call. Anne

I don't know all the details, but it's a little concerning that healthcare providers may be promoting a product that hasn't been shown to be safe and effective.

Here's their answer - not verbatim: E-Cigarettes should be regulated as a nicotine delivery device, not a tobacco product. Sale should not be permitted until FDA has evaluated the products to be safe and effective. They have not been proven to help smokers quit, so ALA doesn't support their use for cessation. The ALA is troubled by their sale and encourages smokers to utilize FDA-approved meds. --Lindsey Greto, MPA > Tobacco Prevention Program > Public Health - Seattle & King County > Ph: (206) 263-9410 Fax: (206) 296-0177 >

Anne, This draft looks great. I think we should take out the sentence about there currently being no restrictions on e-cigs in KC -- that should more appropriately be in the staff report than in the text of the regulation. There isn't really a sentence with rationale about sampling -- do we need that? Joy

Maggie- My understanding is that budgeting into calendar years is something we must do on our end, even if we expect we may amend them. Mark - is that correct? Or is there a way to do a consulting contract in amount only? Sarah

I will put together a letter that copies the language of the contract and send it to you for review. A December 1 start date sounds good, and I look forward to wrapping up the contracting process, as I know you do, too! In the meantime, I accepted the changes in the draft scope of work, with one exception. I thought, based on our exchange from last week, that we werent going to allocate time to particular time periods so that we had flexibility throughout the remaining 15 months, since it would be hard to predict the ebb and flow of work. If that is still okay with you, I deleted the table in the draft scope of work because it just allocated funding over the life of the project and replaced it with a simple paragraph explaining that well invoice you and youll pay us, as the contract says, that our fee is $175 per hour, up to a maximum of $25,000 total. Ive attached it for your review. After I did that, I opened the budget document and see that the template had a lot of stuff that doesnt apply to this contract (e.g., supplies, fringe benefits, etc.). I simplified it to match the content that is in the scope of work. Ive attached it for your review. Please let me know how those two things look and, as I said, Ill draft a letter to match the contract language concerning the conflict issue. Thanks!

Thanks, Maggie. I will inquire about the letter. For the budget - we have to use the 3 year budget format as this is a consultant contract. It's a bit inconvenient, but we can make it work for ad hoc spending. The proposed break-up of the budget reflected the usage I would expect from the particular years. I proposed my budget breakdown based on knowing we will want some bill review in December and very little will likely happen in 2012. We can use the contract amendment process to move funds between years if necessary. Will that work on your end? Thanks, Sarah

I will put together a letter that copies the language of the contract and send it to you for review. A December 1 start date sounds good, and I look forward to wrapping up the contracting process, as I know you do, too! In the meantime, I accepted the changes in the draft scope of work, with one exception. I thought, based on our exchange from last week, that we werent going to allocate time to particular time periods so that we had flexibility throughout the remaining 15 months, since it would be hard to predict the ebb and flow of work. If that is still okay with you, I deleted the table in the draft scope of work because it just allocated funding over the life of the project and replaced it with a simple paragraph explaining that well invoice you and youll pay us, as the contract says, that our fee is $175 per hour, up to a maximum of $25,000 total. Ive attached it for your review. After I did that, I opened the budget document and see that the template had a lot of stuff that doesnt apply to this contract (e.g., supplies, fringe benefits, etc.). I simplified it to match the content that is in the scope of work. Ive attached it for your review. Please let me know how those two things look and, as I said, Ill draft a letter to match the contract language concerning the conflict issue. Thanks!

I do not think it needs to contain much more than that. Thus, it looks like we are in the home stretch. Are you able to put that together to have in hand while we process the contract? The changes to the scope of work look fine to me, I made changes to the budget as discussed. I put December 1 as a start date. A contractor can begin work they will bill for as soon as we have an agreed upon scope of work. I chose the 1st to allow time to put the decision-making safeguards in place. I do know we will want your help in December in preparing for the leg session. Does this work for you? I am also attaching the template we use for contract budgets. I was not sure if you had other expenses besides the hourly fee. Please populate this template as part of the contract. If you need any assistance, Lauren Holt (cc'd above) is an ace. We will start processing the contract - getting Department and County approval - when we finalize these pieces. I will work on the safeguards.

Thanks very much for the update, Molly. Im very glad to hear of the statements that will be forthcoming from officials in WA.

Hi Rusty, I wanted to update you on the recent developments regarding this Camel campaign. There is an increasing amount of media attention on this and targeted communities are calling on RJR to stop the campaign immediately. Sometime today, we also expect officials from here to release statements on this...details are below. Trademarks: we believe Pike Place is moving forward with issuing a cease and desist order to RJR, but we have not heard back from their office regarding the status on this. Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids (TFK) + other targeted communities issue press releases: last Friday, TFK issued a statement calling on RJR to immediately stop the campaign and withdraw plans to release these promotional packs. Other targeted communities, including Austin, NYC, Las Vegas have issued statements. TFK press release: http://www.tobaccofreekids.org/Script/DisplayPressRelease.php3?Display=1241 NYC letter to RJR: earlier this week, NYC's health commissioner sent the attached letter to RJR. This has gotten picked up by several news groups. Governor Gregoire, King County Exec's office, & KC Board of Health rep to release statement today: we have received word that the Governor's office will be releasing a statement sometime very soon. Following the 8_19_2011

Page 2 Governor's lead, another statement will be released which will be from the Exec's office and our Board of Health. Mayor McGinn's office has decided not to issue a statement for fear that it will help Camel promote the product. Also, in the TFK statement, they urge state AGs to investigate whether this promotion violates the MSA's prohibition on marketing that targets kids. We'd be curious to see what your thoughts are on this. In conversations with TFK, they shared examples of where AG's have been able to force RJR to stop campaigns on these grounds (e.g., 2005's "Drink on Us" promotion where RJR was mailing coasters and drink recipes to customers; 2007, several AG's sued RJR over an ad in Rolling Stone that wrapped around a cartoon foldout), but I don't know how this current campaign compares to these previous wins. Thanks and we will keep you posted on any new developments. -Molly

Thanks Rusty... And yes we've been tracking this and have made at least one call (to the Pike Place Market) as they use their copyrighted sign in their marketing materials, but they change the lettering. I also believe there are other icons from around Seattle that may be illegally used too. One being the Pyramid Brewery's two pyramid logo (as you can imagine that fits well with a "camel"). Molly in our office has been doing most of the work on this at this point, so I'm cc'ing her on this email and she can share more details about what we've done and are doing. thanks Scott

Here're more detail on Reynolds new campaign -- hits SF and Seattle R.J. REYNOLDS USES NAMES AND IMAGES OF COOL U.S. CITIES TO MARKET CAMEL CIGARETTES TO KIDS Subtitle: Statement of Matthew L. Myers, President, Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids Source: Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids Date: 2010-11-12, (202) 296-5469 URL: http://www.tobaccofreekids.org/Script/DisplayPressRelease.php3?Display=1241 ID: 310601 Joe Camel may have been put out to pasture, but his spirit lives on in R.J. Reynolds' latest marketing campaign that once again tries to make Camel cigarettes cool, fun and rebellious and appealing to kids. The new campaign cynically uses the names and images of trendy U.S. destinations, including Seattle, Austin, San Francisco, Las Vegas, New Orleans, and Brooklyn's Williamsburg neighborhood, in an attempt to make Camel cigarettes cool again. RJR has unveiled cigarette pack designs bearing the name of each city on its Camel web site and has told the media that it will sell limited edition cigarette packs with the city names in December and January. (View images from the campaign) . ..

It is deeply disturbing that RJR is using the good name and hard-earned reputation of these great American cities to market deadly and addictive cigarettes, especially in a way that blatantly appeals to children. Certainly the citizens and leaders of these cities do not want to be associated with a product that kills more than 400,000 Americans every year. RJR showed truly shameless disregard for the death and suffering its products cause by calling this campaign a "celebration" of the locations involved. . . . 8_19_2011

Page 4 Several weeks ago, RJR launched this new online and direct mail marketing campaign, called the "Break Free Adventure," in which the Camel brand "visits" 10 different U.S. locations over a 10-week period. Visitors to the Camel web site can win prizes by reading a clue and guessing where Camel is that week. Each week, a new package design for Camel cigarettes is unveiled that features the name of that week's location and some of its iconic images. Other locations include Route 66; Bonneville Salt Flats, UT; Sturgis, SD; and Winston-Salem, NC. . . .

Tobacco materials are coming today, per Sarah. We are aiming to send these out to the LT WG COB on Monday 11/22, which would be drastically earlier than we've ever sent them materials before, so we could slip maybe by a day. Tues 11/23 should be considered a hard deadline. You can edit directly into the following documents, leaving your initials in the filename: The draft agenda: <\\PHADM01\Share\DROF\Prevention and Wellness\Joint Implementation\CPPW Coalition Management\Documents Specific to Leadership Team\Working Group\113010 WG Materials\113010 CPPW LTWG Agenda.doc> The sugar loaded beverage background piece: <\\PHADM01\Share\DROF\Prevention and Wellness\Joint Implementation\CPPW Coalition Management\Documents Specific to Leadership Team\Working Group\113010 WG Materials\LTWG_11 30 10_SLB.doc> The WIC draft rules on "retail" store eligibility: <\\PHADM01\Share\DROF\Prevention and Wellness\Joint Implementation\CPPW Coalition Management\Documents Specific to Leadership Team\Working Group\113010 WG Materials\Policy Development - WICdraft111510KMEM.doc> Here are some notes from Anne regarding the SLB piece: Attached is a draft of the SLB one-pager for Jim's review. As you'll see, it is designed to tee up a discussion about which of the policy options they think might be most appropriate as a focus. A few things to flag: First, I think it may make sense for Jim to speak with Jerry about this discussion before the meeting to explore his thoughts about discussing the tax/fee in this venue. Second, I just wanted to note that some of the items on the list (e.g. tax, procurement, vending) are moving forward regardless, but they are still on the list since this is an opportunity to raise awareness and develop support for them. Anne Here are some notes from Erin and the OED team on the WIC rules document: We will delete the comments before sending to the LT WG, but wanted you (Jim) to see before finalizing. The main message we're trying to get to LT WG members is to comment on the rules if they feel strongly about them, focusing on the disadvantages of the restrictive definition of "retailer", and also to pass the info along to others who

are interested. We are not ready to get the LT WG to take action but will have that "ask" in January (if all goes as planned and the WIC program releases their draft) - the certain date(s) are not set.

Basically, we are close to the policy statement. The partners encourage the total ban of e-cigs -- that is the primary difference. We match their recommendation of Smoke free places and defining e-cigs as NOT tobacco products. We also match not taxing these products.

I'm free before 11 or from 3-5 on 12/1. Anyone else?

I think discussing how the program and partners can have the greatest impact would be a great topic for face to face, I'm also hoping it will be a little more clear after Friday's meeting.

Attached is the ACS/AHA/ALA joint policy document on E-cigs. I haven't seen a draft of the BOH code changes, I would assume if they meet the criteria in this document our organizations would be supportive.

Let me know if you need anything else from me. See you tomorrow!

Hi Lucy -

It would be good for Scott to be part of the face to face meeting, and for the three of you to meet Anne. Are you able to do the next partner check-in (Wednesday, December 1st)? Then we will have had time to add comments and suggest revisions for the bill.

We did have some items for discussion this Friday, but can get the conversation started on email. First, we are looking at how to run the campaign from our side. Do you have thoughts about how our program and partners can have the best impact? Also, we the e-cig code changes will be in front of the BOH on December 16th. We have partners in support of this work, but wondered if your organizations would want to do supportive letters or testimony.

Thanks, Sarah

Basically, we are close to the policy statement. The partners encourage the total ban of e-cigs -- that is the primary difference. We match their recommendation of Smoke free places and defining e-cigs as NOT tobacco products. We also match not taxing these products.

The proposed break-up of the budget reflected the usage I would expect from the particular years. I proposed my budget breakdown based on knowing we will want some bill review in December and very little will likely happen in 2012. We can use the contract amendment process to move funds between years if necessary. Will that work on your end? Thanks, Sarah

I will put together a letter that copies the language of the contract and send it to you for review. A December 1 start date sounds good, and I look forward to wrapping up the contracting process, as I know you do, too! In the meantime, I accepted the changes in the draft scope of work, with one exception. I thought, based on our exchange from last week, that we werent going to allocate time to particular time periods so that we had flexibility throughout the remaining 15 months, since it would be hard to predict the ebb and flow of work. If that is still okay with you, I deleted the table in the draft scope of work because it just allocated funding over the life of the project and replaced it with a simple paragraph explaining that well invoice you and youll pay us, as the contract says, that our fee is $175 per hour, up to a maximum of $25,000 total. Ive attached it for your review.

I do not think it needs to contain much more than that. Thus, it looks like we are in the home stretch. Are you able to put that together to have in hand while we process the contract? The changes to the scope of work look fine to me, I made changes to the budget as discussed. I put December 1 as a start date. A contractor can begin work they will bill for as soon as we have an agreed upon scope of work. I chose the 1st to allow time to put the decision-making safeguards in place. I do know we will want your help in December in preparing for the leg session. Does this work for you? I am also attaching the template we use for contract budgets. I was not sure if you had other expenses besides the hourly fee. Please populate this template as part of the contract. If you need any assistance, Lauren Holt (cc'd above) is an ace. We will start processing the contract - getting Department and County approval - when we finalize these pieces. I will work on the safeguards. Thanks for bearing with us, Sarah

Our Board of Health is not proposing to go so far as to prohibit their sale entirely, but is interested in restricting their availability to youth. If you have a chance to take a look, I would love to hear your thoughts. I'll be out of the office for the rest of the week but back on Monday. All the best, Anne

I do not think it needs to contain much more than that. Thus, it looks like we are in the home stretch. Are you able to put that together to have in hand while we process the contract? The changes to the scope of work look fine to me, I made changes to the budget as discussed. I put December 1 as a start date. A contractor can begin work they will bill for as soon as we have an agreed upon scope of work. I chose the 1st to allow time to put the decision-making safeguards in place. I do know we will want your help in December in preparing for the leg session. Does this work for you? I am also attaching the template we use for contract budgets. I was not sure if you had other expenses besides the hourly fee. Please populate this template as part of the contract. If you need any assistance, Lauren Holt (cc'd above) is an ace. We will start processing the contract - getting Department and County approval - when we finalize these pieces. I will work on the safeguards. Thanks for bearing with us, Sarah

I was wondering if you might have the time to review a draft regulation restricting the sale of eproducts (attached). Our Board of Health is not proposing to go so far as to prohibit their sale entirely, but is interested in restricting their availability to youth. If you have a chance to take a look, I would love to hear your thoughts. I'll be out of the office for the rest of the week but back on Monday. All the best, Anne

We met with the BOH Tobacco Policy committee yesterday and they have agreed to present the proposed regulations related to electronic cigarettes to the full board at the December meeting. These proposed changes include: * restrict the sale of unapproved nicotine delivery devices and electronic smoking devices to adults 18 years of age or older; * prohibit providing free (sampling) or heavily discounted electronic smoking devices or unapproved nicotine delivery products and; * prohibit mechanical sales (vending machines) of e-cigarettes and unregulated nicotine delivery products in any place where minors may be present * prohibit the use of e-cigarettes and similar "smoking" devices in places where smoking is prohibited by law. 2. There was a press conference yesterday held by Mary Selecky, Jeff Harris, and Cheryl Healton (Legacy) to announce the findings of a new study showing that the return on investment in tobacco spending is five to one. I've attached the document that explains more in detail.

3. The Camel Cigarettes campaign featuring a Seattle pack of cigarettes is starting to receive media attention. We are expecting media around this today or tomorrow.

Heres a reviewed version of the draft rule and regulation, with edits shown in Track Changes and a few Comments. This was overall really solid, and I realize youre still working on it, but the review had to be done on what was there. Most edits were for format and style, and most of that to try to keep things simple and consistent. The Comments explain a lot of whats going on (by their nature, theyre pithy). Sometimes a Comment is on an issue that comes up throughout the draft, and there was no attempt to be comprehensive on putting a Comment in every place they come up. One note on style is that the construction of No person shall is used quite often, rather than A person shall not Generally in drafting, the latter is preferred; to address this would require quite a lot of redrafting, and I dont know if it is necessary. You should check with counsel for their position on that. Speaking of which, overall, you should also be sure this is reviewed by counsel. I am happy to review further drafts and answer any questions or concerns you might have. Thanks for sending this for a review. Bruce

Please review this draft carefully and note that these recommendations do not constitute approval by the King County Council of the proposal's substantive content or a legal opinion as to the validity of the proposal or any part of it. Furthermore, there may be other legal or substantive issues to consider in addition to those addressed in this draft. To properly address substantive or legal issues, please consult with the Councils legal counsel or the Prosecuting Attorneys Office.

We met with James Apa in communications the other day to plan for the upcoming e-cigs regulations with the BOH. He suggested that we prepare a few things and I'm hoping you can help out with this. We need three things: 1. A flavored/colorful e-cig -- if you don't think that you can buy one from a kiosk, tobacco shop -- we can buy online 2. a list of locations of places that sell e-cigs (to give to media if they ask) 3. photos of e-cigs vendors/ads -- we already have the photo you took at 7-11, but more of this type of thing would be good. James wants us to have visual images because many people know so little about this product. Let me know if you can work on helping get these things or have any questions. Thanks!!! Joy

I'm free before 11 or from 3-5 on 12/1. Anyone else?

I think discussing how the program and partners can have the greatest impact would be a great topic for face to face, I'm also hoping it will be a little more clear after Friday's meeting.

Attached is the ACS/AHA/ALA joint policy document on E-cigs. I haven't seen a draft of the BOH code changes, I would assume if they meet the criteria in this document our organizations would be supportive.

Hi Lucy -

It would be good for Scott to be part of the face to face meeting, and for the three of you to meet Anne. Are you able to do the next partner check-in (Wednesday, December 1st)? Then we will have had time to add comments and suggest revisions for the bill.

We did have some items for discussion this Friday, but can get the conversation started on email. First, we are looking at how to run the campaign from our side. Do you have thoughts about how our program and partners can have the best impact? Also, we the e-cig code changes will be in front of the BOH on December 16th. We have partners in support of this work, but wondered if your organizations would want to do supportive letters or testimony.

Thanks, Sarah

Since Anne and Scott aren't going to be there do you think we still need a face to face? We're waiting on the draft bill from the code reviser's office and can bounce it around on email for input. Did you have anything we needed to touch base on in person?

We are proposing that e-cigarettes be added to current smoking in public places and places of employment code. We are doing this because e-cigarettes pose a threat to enforcement of the law. Additionally, the use o e-cigs in public places degrades the progress we have made creating a social norm about no-smoking. Becau of this, I am pretty certain that we would include e-cigs in parks policies but I will have to double check.

We havent gotten into the details of your e-cig regulations, because e-cigs arent a CPPW policy priority BUT we do care about how you are positioning e-cigs when it comes to smoke-free parks.

Do you know where the County has landed on whether they will recommend e-cig restrictions in Smoke-free park policies

We want to make sure we have PHSKC-approved model policies on hand to share with other cities/policy makers. Being able to cite excerpts from these bills (or even being able to share the entire language of the bill) will likely help people (a journalists) feel less intimidated by government regulations. People often imagine regulation to be much more rigid than actually is when there are no specifics offered. Thanks again for your help! Roz

"Pearson, Anne" "Johnson, Gareth" <Gareth.Johnson@kingcounty.gov> 11/21/2010 6:36:43 PM Revised E-cigarette regulation E-cigarette regulation(11 21 10).doc

Gary, As we discussed on Friday, I am very grateful for the PAOs quick review of our draft E-cigarette regulation and have made the following changes to respond to the concerns that were raised. * The revised draft (attached) does not amend the county Smoking in Public Places Law. Rather, the prohibition on using e-cigarettes in public places and places of employment now appears as a stand-alone section in the new chapter governing electronic smoking devices. * This draft includes a section entitled Applicability, which makes very clear that this regulation applies to electronic smoking devices and nicotine delivery products only to the extent not preempted by federal law, including, but not limited to, the regulation of those products by the United States Food and Drug Administration. Should the FDA eventually regulate e-cigarettes either as drug delivery devices or as tobacco products -- this provision acknowledges that the federal regulations would prevail. I hope that these changes are sufficient to address the PAOs concerns, although I welcome their input and edits as we move forward together to finalize the regulation. On the issue of preemption, I think we stand on firm ground. As you know, electronic cigarettes are not currently regulated by the FDA because they are relatively new to the market and there is an unresolved dispute concerning whether they are drug delivery devices or tobacco products. If e-cigarettes are determined to be drug devices, the proposed regulation would be preempted only if and when the FDA establishes specific regulations or other requirements applicable to electronic cigarettes. See 21 C.F.R. 808.1(d); Jacobs v. E.I. du Pont de Nemours & Co., 67 F.3d 1219 (6th Cir. 1995); King v. Collagen Corp., 983 F.2d 1130 (1st Cir. 1993) . In the absence of any specific FDA regulations governing e-cigarettes, local requirements pose no conflict and are not preempted. If it is determined that e-cigarettes are tobacco products, as defined by the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act, there is nothing in the proposed regulation that would be preempted as the FSPTCA very clearly reserves the rights of localities to regulate the sale, distribution, possession, exposure to, access to, advertising and promotion of, or use of tobacco products by individuals of any age. 21 U.S.C.A. 387p(a)(1). The proposed restrictions on minimum age, sampling, i.d. checks and use in public are consistent with the powers reserved to localities. Although the FSPTCA would preempt local regulation of e-cigarettes should they be classified as modified risk tobacco products, id. at 387p(a)(2)(A), manufacturers of e-cigarettes would be required to apply for and receive an order from the FDA finding that their products are sold or distributed for use to reduce harm or the risk of tobacco related disease associated with commercially marketed tobacco products. I am not aware that any manufacturers of electronic cigarettes have sought such classification. In the absence of an order finding that they meet that definition, there would be no preemption of local regulations restricting youth access. Lastly, RCW 70.155 preempts local governments from regulating the retail sales of tobacco products, which are defined as a product that contains tobacco and is intended for human use. Although some brands of e-cigarettes may

contain nicotine that is derived from tobacco, they do not contain tobacco itself. The fact that e-cigarettes like the nicotine patch and nicotine gum may contain a chemical derived from tobacco, does not make them fit within the state definition of tobacco products. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. -Anne

Dear BOH Tobacco Policy Committee members, The Tobacco Prevention Program has prepared draft code language regarding electronic cigarette (and other unapproved nicotine delivery devices) regulations. If you have a chance, please review the proposed language and come prepared to tomorrow's committee meeting (1:30 pm, Chinook 1312) with any questions or comments. Please note that this is also being reviewed by the Prosecuting Attorney's Office. The proposed changes include: 1) restrict the sale of unapproved nicotine delivery devices and electronic smoking devices to adults 18 years of age or older; 2) prohibit providing free (sampling) or heavily discounted electronic smoking devices or unapproved nicotine delivery products and; 3) prohibit mechanical sales (vending machines) in any place where minors may be present 4) prohibit the use of e-cigarettes and similar smoking devices in places where smoking is prohibited by law. I've also attached the agenda for tomorrow's meeting.

Questions / clarifications / ideas / deadline? Joy, 1. e-cigs themselves aren't being marketed or packaged as flashy or colorful. The flavors come in to play more w/ the e-liquids. Most of the kits are simply packaged w/ a dosing for nicotine (high, med, low, zero). The two versions we have in the office (if PZ has kept his around) both are in simple black packaging, which is consistent w/ most of the brands I've seen around. The X-Hale02 brand at 7-Eleven is one brand where the colors/flavors come into play, and that's only with their "e-hookah" flavors. 2. We spoke briefly about the locations. As I mentioned, more and more 7-Elevens are carrying the X-Hale02 brand. www.xhaleo2.com - Northgate and Southcenter malls both have the Smoking Everywhere kiosks, and I'm almost certain Alderwood (Snohomish County) does as well. I have also confirmed e-cig units being sold throughout the county including: Capitol Hill Smoke Shop (smoke stick, 51 gold starter pack, cartridges), Holy Smoke (nicstick no-name brand, e-liquid, cartridges), Duvall Cigarland ("clean" and refills $29) and Smokeco Plus in Fall City (fiftyone starter kit $59.) 3. I have a few other images of the Smoking Everywhere kiosk in Southcenter. I had more of the 7-11 ones, but my phone decided to dump those a week or two ago. I can get more of those fairly easily.

I haven't seen much within the county that goes beyond what I've collected as far as vendors/ads. There's a lot online of course, and I previously sent an email w/ a lot of that information. When does James say we should have these items? Let me know what you think, FP

for 1. My hunch is yes - we would want to include smoking devices in the parks policies - to make enforcement easy and to follow the argument of modeling for youth. I am not sure about the polishing of policies. I remember the big one as coming up with a city policy. Checking in with John about what needs to be done sounds like the right first step (you may want to review first and see what you think is missing).

Bruce, I have attached a revised draft for your final review. Anne made a few changes since you last saw the draft on Friday primarily: * The revised draft (attached) does not amend the county Smoking in Public Places Law. Rather, the prohibition on using e-cigarettes in public places and places of employment now appears as a stand-alone section in the new chapter governing electronic smoking devices. * This draft includes a section entitled Applicability, which makes very clear that this regulation applies to electronic smoking devices and nicotine delivery products only to the extent not preempted by federal law, including, but not limited to, the regulation of those products by the United States Food and Drug Administration. Should the FDA eventually regulate e-cigarettes either as drug delivery devices or as tobacco products -- this provision acknowledges that the federal regulations would prevail. I have also attached the public notice document (that will be published in the Seattle Times) for your review as well.

Here you go, Joy.

Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks again for sending this for review.

Bruce, I have attached a revised draft for your final review. Anne made a few changes since you last saw the draft on Friday primarily: * The revised draft (attached) does not amend the county Smoking in Public Places Law. Rather, the prohibition on using e-cigarettes in public places and places of employment now appears as a stand-alone section in the new chapter governing electronic smoking devices. * This draft includes a section entitled "Applicability," which makes very clear that this regulation applies to electronic smoking devices and nicotine delivery products "only to the extent not preempted by federal law, including, but not limited to, the regulation of those products by the United States Food and Drug Administration." Should the FDA eventually regulate e-cigarettes - either as drug delivery devices or as tobacco products -- this provision acknowledges that the federal regulations would prevail. I have also attached the public notice document (that will be published in the Seattle Times) for your review as well.

I will put together a letter that copies the language of the contract and send it to you for review. A December 1 start date sounds good, and I look forward to wrapping up the contracting process, as I know you do, too! In the meantime, I accepted the changes in the draft scope of work, with one exception. I thought, based on our exchange from last week, that we werent going to allocate time to particular time periods so that we had flexibility throughout the remaining 15 months, since it would be hard to predict the ebb and flow of work. If that is still okay with you, I deleted the table in the draft scope of work because it just allocated funding over the life of the project and replaced it with a simple paragraph explaining that well invoice you and youll pay us, as the contract says, that our fee is $175 per hour, up to a maximum of $25,000 total. Ive attached it for your review. After I did that, I opened the budget document and see that the template had a lot of stuff that doesnt apply to this contract (e.g., supplies, fringe benefits, etc.). I simplified it to match the content that is in the scope of work. Ive attached it for your review. Please let me know how those two things look and, as I said, Ill draft a letter to match the contract language concerning the conflict issue. Thanks!

I do not think it needs to contain much more than that. Thus, it looks like we are in the home stretch. Are you able to put that together to have in hand while we process the contract? The changes to the scope of work look fine to me, I made changes to the budget as discussed. I put December 1 as a start date. A contractor can begin work they will bill for as soon as we have an agreed upon scope of work. I chose the 1st to allow time to put the decision-making safeguards in place. I do know we will want your help in December in preparing for the leg session. Does this work for you? I am also attaching the template we use for contract budgets. I was not sure if you had other expenses besides the hourly fee. Please populate this template as part of the contract. If you need any assistance, Lauren Holt (cc'd above) is an ace. We will start processing the contract - getting Department and County approval - when we finalize these pieces. I will work on the safeguards. Thanks for bearing with us, Sarah 8_19_2011

Our Board of Health is not proposing to go so far as to prohibit their sale entirely, but is interested in restricting their availability to youth. If you have a chance to take a look, I would love to hear your thoughts. I'll be out of the office for the rest of the week but back on Monday. All the best, Anne

Bruce, I have attached a revised draft for your final review. Anne made a few changes since you last saw the draft on Friday primarily: The revised draft (attached) does not amend the county Smoking in Public Places Law. Rather, the prohibition on using e-cigarettes in public places and places of employment now appears as a stand-alone section in the new chapter governing electronic smoking devices. This draft includes a section entitled Applicability, which makes very clear that this regulation applies to electronic smoking devices and nicotine delivery products only to the extent not preempted by federal law, including, but not limited to, the regulation of those products by the United States Food and Drug Administration. Should the FDA eventually regulate e-cigarettes either as drug delivery devices or as tobacco products -- this provision acknowledges that the federal regulations would prevail. I have also attached the public notice document (that will be published in the Seattle Times) for your review as well.

Long story short, I don't have a total green light yet that this is going to happen at the December meeting. We have a meeting next Wednesday and I will know more after that meeting (its with the Prosecuting Attorney who has been on vacation).

"Hamilton, Joy" "Pajimula, Fel" <Fel.Pajimula@kingcounty.gov> 11/24/2010 3:57:14 PM RE: E-cigs prep

I think we need to talk more about the flashy e-cigs and if its necessary to buy one. I'll add that to the agenda for our BOH prep meeting on MOnday. Here's an interesting article I just found about this issue: http://hubpages.com/hub/Where-To-Buy-Color-Electronic-Cigarettes I think we should also check in with James about strategy for providing a list of retailers if there is a request from the media. As I mentioned to you, I'm cautious about calling these places out. Frankly, they aren't hard to find and a resourceful reporter shouldn't need guidance from us! The timeline we're working with is that I need to have images by Dec. 12 for the PPT presentation and James will likley be getting media inquires just before the meeting on the 16th. Joy

________________________________________ From: Pajimula, Fel Sent: Monday, November 22, 2010 1:02 PM To: Hamilton, Joy Cc: Neal, Scott; Hatzenbuehler, Eric Subject: RE: E-cigs prep Questions / clarifications / ideas / deadline? Joy, 1. e-cigs themselves aren't being marketed or packaged as flashy or colorful. The flavors come in to play more w/ the e-liquids. Most of the kits are simply packaged w/ a dosing for nicotine (high, med, low, zero). The two versions we have in the office (if PZ has kept his around) both are in simple black packaging, which is consistent w/ most of the brands I've seen around. The X-Hale02 brand at 7-Eleven is one brand where the colors/flavors come into play, and that's only with their "e-hookah" flavors. 2. We spoke briefly about the locations. As I mentioned, more and more 7-Elevens are carrying the X-Hale02 brand. www.xhaleo2.com - Northgate and Southcenter malls both have the Smoking Everywhere kiosks, and I'm almost certain Alderwood (Snohomish County) does as well. I have also confirmed e-cig units being sold throughout the county including: Capitol Hill Smoke Shop (smoke stick, 51 gold starter pack, cartridges), Holy Smoke (nicstick no-name brand, e-liquid, cartridges), Duvall Cigarland ("clean" and refills $29) and Smokeco Plus in Fall City (fiftyone starter kit $59.) 3. I have a few other images of the Smoking Everywhere kiosk in Southcenter. I had more of the 7-11 ones, but my phone decided to dump those a week or two ago. I can get more of those fairly easily.

I haven't seen much within the county that goes beyond what I've collected as far as vendors/ads. There's a lot online of course, and I previously sent an email w/ a lot of that information.

He suggested that we prepare a few things and I'm hoping you can help out with this. We need three things: 1. A flavored/colorful e-cig -- if you don't think that you can buy one from a kiosk, tobacco shop -- we can buy online 2. a list of locations of places that sell e-cigs (to give to media if they ask) 3. photos of e-cigs vendors/ads -- we already have the photo you took at 7-11, but more of this type of thing would be good. James wants us to have visual images because many people know so little about this product. Let me know if you can work on helping get these things or have any questions. Thanks!!! Joy

Anne, would you be interested in writing up something about this? If not, Joy has volunteered as well - it just sounded like something you might have some insight on! * To prevent youth from tobacco use (some general stats (such as x amount of smokers begin before age of 18, etc). Lindsey's section * Because tobacco companies are constantly evolving their marketing and products to hook new users (information on the Camel campaign (include image?) as well as new products, + e-cigs as a not-tobacco company but still a new product on the market). Molly's section * Because everyone deserves to be tobacco-free (reviewing tobacco-free policy for housing/providers/etc, list of sites/agencies already there, or planning to). Maybe create a graph showing the number of agencies in each group? Collaboration between Lindsey, Paul, Nori, & Karen. * Separate section: BOH Update (December e-cigs.

Joy,

"Neal, Scott" "Hamilton, Joy" <Joy.Hamilton@kingcounty.gov> 11/30/2010 7:26:09 PM FW: BOH Tobacco Policy Committee agenda and draft code language for review

Here is what I would respond to Mayor Dave... I've watered this down a bit from what John and Eric pulled together. I just don't think that Mayor Dave needs to hear the details of our case with Majles. Update on Hookah in Seattle On October, 15th 2010 the Tobacco Prevention Program sent an educational letter to all establishments in King County (including all hookah lounges) that had received any enforcement action in the past alerting them of the changes to the law. That weekend staff began conducting inspections and issuing Notice of Violation letters under the new code. Because this is a new regulation any place found in violation must go through the standard violation process which includes the issuance of a Notice and Order along with a right to appeal that notice. We are currently working with the Prosecuting Attorney's Office to work out the minor changes needed to our Noticie and Orders under the new regulation and will proceed with enforcement action on any violators as appropriate. The amendments that the Board passed clarify definitions of terms that were open to broad interpretation and will support public health in proceeding with new inspections under the revised guidelines. Any violations under the new guidelines will result in fines, newly created re-inspection fees, and appropriate legal action. However, it is highly likely that each hookah establishment will require a somewhat lengthy legal process before compliance is achieved. Scott

From: Bennett, John Sent: Tuesday, November 30, 2010 2:10 PM To: Hatzenbuehler, Eric; Neal, Scott Subject: RE: BOH Tobacco Policy Committee agenda and draft code language for review Here is my suggestion:

Update on Hookah in Seattle We are in the final stages of legal action with Majles presided over by the King County Hearing Examiner. This case was regarding a fine issued prior to the BOH Code 19.03 amendments that went into effect October 16, 2010. Though the Hearing Examiner denied Majles' appeal of being in violation of the no smoking in public places law, he chose to facilitate the development of an operating plan that is, by his definition and not public health's, in compliance with the old law. On October, 15th 2010 the Tobacco Prevention Program sent an educational letter to all establishments in King County, including Majles, that had received any enforcement action in the past alerting them of the changes to the law. That weekend staff began conducting inspections and issuing Notice of Violation letters under the new code. Majles has been inspected two times since the new law went into effect and has been found in violation of the law on both occasions. The Hearing Examiner has informed the program that a new Notice and Order is required in order to enforce the new provisions of the code on Majles. The program is currently working with the Prosecuting Attorney's Office to decide how best to proceed. The amendments that the Board passed clarify definitions of terms that were open to broad interpretation during the most recent ruling and will support public health in proceeding with new inspections under the revised guidelines. Any violations under the new guidelines will result in fines, newly created re-inspection fees, and appropriate legal action. However, it is highly likely that each hookah establishment will require a somewhat lengthy legal process before compliance is achieved. 8_19_2011

"Hamilton, Joy" mayordave@cityoflfp.com 12/1/2010 8:24:00 PM FW: BOH Tobacco Policy Committee agenda and draft code language for review

Mayor Dave, Good morning. I asked the enforcement team to give you an update on the hookah bars:
Update on Hookah in Seattle On October, 15th 2010 the Tobacco Prevention Program sent an educational letter to all establishments in King County (including all hookah lounges) that had received any enforcement action in the past alerting them of the changes to the law. That weekend staff began conducting inspections and issuing Notice of Violation letters under the new code. Because this is a new regulation any place found in violation must go through the standard violation process which includes the issuance of a Notice and Order along with a right to appeal that notice. We are currently working with the Prosecuting Attorney's Office to work out the minor changes needed to our Notice and Orders under the new regulation and will proceed with enforcement action on any violators as appropriate. The amendments that the Board passed clarify definitions of terms that were open to broad interpretation and will support public health in proceeding with new inspections under the revised guidelines. Any violations under the new guidelines will result in fines, newly created re-inspection fees, and appropriate legal action. However, it is highly likely that each hookah establishment will require a somewhat lengthy legal process before compliance is achieved.

Please let me know if you have any further questions. Joy Hamilton, MPH Public Health - Seattle & King County Communities Putting Prevention to Work Tobacco Policy and Advocacy Manager 401 5th Ave. Suite 900 Seattle, WA 98104 (206) 263-9382 joy.hamilton@kingcounty.gov

Great job! I've made a number of suggestions in the attached. Some general comments: - I think we need to provide more information about nicotine delivery devices other than e-cigs to justify our regulation of them; - I think we should also try to provide more information about the enforcement concerns. Can we find out from John how many complaints/inquiries re: e-cigs we have received, and provide a little more detail about why permitting ecig use in public is a problem? - Lastly, I think we should support the staff report with as many documents as possible. There are a few additional FDA documents that would be useful to attach. There are also some recent articles that look at e-cigs that are worth reviewing to see if they provide support. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20980012; http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20644205. If so, they could be attached. Always important to make sure we describe what the source says with 100% accuracy. After you look through, let me know if you want to discuss. A

Maria or Joy..should I respond? I don't want Mayor Dave to think that there is resistance to the new law. The reference to lengthy legal process is resistance to the state law. The local law actually should help clarify and make it easier for us to build a case against places that continue to allow smoking. Unfortunately the BOH can't pass regulations to speed up the legal process. :) Scott

Thanks Anne. So we feel we made progress, but not on every point David. It may finally come down to whether you decide to proceed even though we have heard Jane's concerns. Should we get together again to discuss this further?

From: Pearson, Anne Sent: Wednesday, December 01, 2010 05:46 PM To: Johnson, Gareth Cc: Fleming, David; Neal, Scott; Wood, Maria Subject: Meeting with PAO re: E-cigarette regulation

Gary, At your request, Im summarizing todays meeting with Jane McKenzie concerning the proposed e-cigarette regulation. As I think you would agree, the meeting was very cordial and we had a healthy back and forth about the legal issues presented by the proposal. As to the proposed ban on using e-cigarettes in public places, Jane conceded that since the state law does not affirmatively permit e-cigarette use, the proposed restriction is not likely preempted. We noted our appreciation of Cynthias recommended edits, and I believe there is agreement that this provision is within the authority of the Board of Health. As to the question of whether the proposed regulation of e-cigarettes is preempted by the state law prohibiting local regulation of the retail sale of tobacco products, Jane agrees that it is not preempted so long as e-cigarettes do not contain tobacco. We agreed that this question hinges entirely on the contents of the products. Where we continue to disagree is on the scope of federal preemption. As you know, the question that has been raised in litigation is whether e-cigarettes are tobacco products or drug delivery devices. Jane said that an appellate decision in the litigation might be handed down shortly, and suggested that the Board might want to wait to act until that decision has been rendered. That said, if the decision -- which will not be binding in WA state -- finds that e-cigarettes are drug/device combination products with the primary mode of action being that of a drug, which is the current position of the FDA, I believe that localities will not be preempted from regulating them until such time as the FDA issues specific regulations governing them as devices. Notably, Scott and I have spoken with FDA officials in the drug/device division, and while they have not expressly said that they do not believe our proposed regulation is not preempted by federal drug/device laws, they have expressed support for our efforts and never raised any concerns with respect to preemption. If the decision finds that they are modified risk tobacco products, it is Janes position that localities will be preempted from regulating them even before the manufacturers of those products have applied for and received an order from the FDA finding that they meet that definition. She reads the FDA law to provide that modified risk tobacco products that have not gone through the FDA approval process are prohibited from being sold, but at the same time may not be regulated at the local level. I think that the preemptive scope of the new FDA law with respect to modified risk tobacco products is very much an open question, but that it is not consistent with the spirit of the law to prohibit localities from regulating products 8_19_2011

Page 2 that are essentially operating on the black market. At the end of the day, no state or locality that has passed an e-cigarette law has been sued. In all likelihood, this is the case because to claim that the local laws are preempted is tantamount to conceding that e-cigarettes are either tobacco products (in which case they are already subject to minimum age and sampling restrictions), modified risk tobacco products (in which case they may not even be sold in the U.S. prior to FDA approval) or drug/delivery devices (in which case they will require approval from a different branch of the FDA.) Please let me know if you have any questions. -Anne

Hi Mayor Dave, Joy shared your email with me regarding the hookah update. I just wanted to clarify...the resistance that we are seeing has nothing to do with recently adopted BOH code. These establishments are simply resisting the original 5 year old statewide smoking ban. Unfortunately the "lengthy legal process" reference in the email cannot be expedited by the new BOH code. However if we have to go down the legal process, the new code helps make our case more likely to be successful because it makes these cases more black or white with regards to if smoking is occuring in a public place or place of employment. It has also helped our staff communicate more clearly to callers that continue to ask us how they can open a hookah lounge. thanks Scott

Thanks for the up-date Joy. Sounds like there is some resistance to the new law with your reference to a lengthy legal process. Mayor Dave
From: Hamilton, Joy [mailto:Joy.Hamilton@kingcounty.gov] Sent: Wednesday, December 01, 2010 4:24 PM To: 'mayordave@cityoflfp.com' Subject: FW: BOH Tobacco Policy Committee agenda and draft code language for review

Mayor Dave, Good morning. I asked the enforcement team to give you an update on the hookah bars:
Update on Hookah in Seattle On October, 15th 2010 the Tobacco Prevention Program sent an educational letter to all establishments in King County (including all hookah lounges) that had received any enforcement action in the past alerting them of the changes to the law. That weekend staff began conducting inspections and issuing Notice of Violation letters under the new code. Because this is a new regulation any place found in violation must go through the standard violation process which includes the issuance of a Notice and Order along with a right to appeal that notice. We are currently working with the Prosecuting Attorney's Office to work out the minor changes needed to our Notice and Orders under the new regulation and will proceed with enforcement action on any violators as appropriate. The amendments that the Board passed clarify definitions of terms that were open to broad interpretation and will support public health in proceeding with new inspections under the revised guidelines. Any violations under the new guidelines will result in fines, newly created re-inspection fees, and appropriate legal action. However, it is highly likely that each hookah establishment will require a somewhat lengthy legal process before compliance is achieved.

Please let me know if you have any further questions. Joy Hamilton, MPH Public Health - Seattle & King County Communities Putting Prevention to Work

Dear BOH Tobacco Policy Committee members, The Tobacco Prevention Program has prepared draft code language regarding electronic cigarette (and other unapproved nicotine delivery devices) regulations. If you have a chance, please review the proposed language and come prepared to tomorrow's committee meeting (1:30 pm, Chinook 1312) with any questions or comments. Please note that this is also being reviewed by the Prosecuting Attorney's Office. The proposed changes include: 1) restrict the sale of unapproved nicotine delivery devices and electronic smoking devices to adults 18 years of age or older; 2) prohibit providing free (sampling) or heavily discounted electronic smoking devices or unapproved nicotine delivery products and; 3) prohibit mechanical sales (vending machines) in any place where minors may be present 4) prohibit the use of e-cigarettes and similar smoking devices in places where smoking is prohibited by law. I've also attached the agenda for tomorrow's meeting.

Many of the proposed restrictions on access to electronic smoking devices were patterned on the state law that restricts youth access to traditional tobacco products. Pasted below is that portion of the RCW that regulates cigarette vending machine locations. As you'll see, the language about the location of such machines is borrowed verbatim from that section of the state law. I don't know how the state law came about.

Page 2 Bill, You have every right to signal and celebrate a decision with which you agree but you are no oracle and do not have the right or authority to declare "a huge victory for public health and civil justice." I would venture to assume that far more members of GLOBALink think this a problematic ruling than a victory. Just today, an Open Access report by Trtchounian and Talbot has been posted on the Tobacco Control website and the authors are far less sanguine than you concerning the merits of e-cigarettes. I include the conclusions and a couple of excerpts below, along with the links. The authors have a cautionary tale to tell. As you have posted to General, I'm responding both here and on the E-Cigs list, but further discussion should be on the latter only, as it was intended for just such rulings and reports. Best wishes, Stan --------Stan Shatenstein Contributing Editor, Tobacco Control Coordinator, GLOBALink NIMI News & Information Monitoring Initiative shatensteins@sympatico.ca ======================= Electronic nicotine delivery systems: is there a need for regulation? Tob Control Published Online First 7 December 2010 Anna Trtchounian, Prue Talbot Conclusions Design flaws, lack of adequate labelling and concerns about quality control and health issues indicate that regulators should consider removing ENDS from the market until their safety can be adequately evaluated.

Truth in advertisement On both websites and in print material, we found numerous statements regarding ENDS that were not based on scientific findings and for which there is no rigorous supporting data. Examples of such statements include: Be careful to avoid inhaling any significant quantity of liquid. Although it gives you a slight tingling sensation, it is not harmful (Liberty Stix); Within 2 weeks, your lung capacity will increase by 30%. Your energy levels will increase. Your throat and lungs will feel markedly better! Wrinkles in your skin will become less noticeable and colour will return to your skin (Liberty Stix). One pack (Smoking Everywhere) was labelled Vitamin, although no indication of what this meant was given. Discussion ...Used cartridges contained fluid after they ceased producing aerosol. Regulatory agencies need to address how to safely dispose of used cartridges and minimise introduction of nicotine into the environment. Studies documenting hazards associated with disposal of cigarette butts12 13 led to regulation of butt disposal in Australia, where fines are issued to those who do not deposit butts in valid receptacles.14 Residual nicotine in spent ENDS cartridges can leak onto surfaces where conversion to carcinogens could take place.6 Furthermore, as nicotine from used ENDS cartridges leaches into water supplies, it may directly affect aquatic life and could be propagated through the food chain. Proper disposal of ENDS cartridges should be addressed before spent cartridges present a serious health problem. Better regulation of ENDS sales and distribution is needed to protect children and adults from nicotine exposure and possible addiction. Our observations provide evidence that regulators should consider 8_19_2011

Board of Health approves blueprint for a healthy King County Guidelines seen as outline to assist communities in land use and transportation planning decisions The King County Board of Health today passed a resolution approving and supporting the 2010 Board of Health Guidelines: Planning for Healthy Communities, intended to inform land use and transportation planning decisions to promote healthy living throughout King County. "Our environment, such as our roads, walking paths and economic infrastructure, has a significant impact on the physical, mental and social well-being of the people in our communities" said Julia Patterson, Chair of the King County Board of Health. "These guidelines are intended to help local jurisdictions ensure that their land use planning decisions do not compromise the public's health, and to serve as a reminder that planning issues remain at the root of some of the most widespread public health problems like obesity and substance abuse." The Board of Health has been actively promoting the goals of healthy eating and active living since 2005 with the King County Overweight Prevention Initiative and other efforts, after an increasing body of evidence has shown that effective land use and transportation planning decisions can help create environments that allow people to be physically active, eat healthy food, and live in safe and healthy places. The Board's planning for Healthy Communities guidelines are intended to inform land use and transportation planners working at regional, county, and city levels of actions. The guidelines include: * Physical Activity: Residents in all communities in King County have access to safe and convenient opportunities for physical activity and exercise. * Nutrition: Residents in all communities in King County have access to healthy, affordable foods. * Harmful Environmental Exposures: Residents in all communities in King County are protected from exposure to harmful environmental agents and infectious diseases. * Injury: o Residents in all communities in King County use transportation systems designed to prevent driver, bicyclist and pedestrian injuries. o Residents in all communities in King County live in safe communities free from violence and fear of violence. * Tobacco Use: Residents in all communities in King County are protected from involuntary exposure to second hand tobacco smoke and children cannot access tobacco products. * Alcohol Use: Residents in all communities in King County are protected from negative impacts of alcohol. * Mental Health and Well-being: Residents in all communities in King County benefit from community design that maximizes opportunities for social connectivity and stress reduction. * Access to Health Care: Residents in all communities in King County have local access to health care services. Urban planning and public health have been linked for nearly a century, starting from the need to prevent infectious disease outbreaks in the early 1900's. More recently public health agencies, including the King County Board of Health, have returned to a focus on urban design as it becomes more apparent that "place" does matter and that the leading causes of death and disability are linked to the environments where we live, work, learn and play. In 2008, the Puget Sound Regional Council adopted VISION 2040, the growth management, environmental, economic, and transportation strategy for the Central Puget Sound Region which contains strategies for promoting the well-being of people and communities, economic vitality, and a healthy environment. Within VISION 2040, the Built Environment and Health section includes broad goal and policies to serve as a platform for counties and cities as they continue to integrate knowledge of public health impacts into their planning activities.

The Board of Health, based on its function to promote and improve public health for all King County residents, determined this an opportune time to provide additional guidance and detail as jurisdictions work to include the VISION 2040 policies on the built environment and health into their planning processes. The Board of Health supports the reintegration of public health into planning decisions as an important strategy to ensure that all people and communities have the opportunity to make healthy choices regardless of their income, education or ethnic background.

From: "Pearson, Anne" To: "Neal, Scott" <Scott.Neal@kingcounty.gov> "Wood, Maria" <Maria.Wood@kingcounty.gov> Date: Subject: RE: BOH Staff Report: E-Cigs I just read the opinion. I also communicated with Eric Lindblom, the general counsel for TFK, who shared with me his analysis which I have pasted below. In reading the opinion it is important to remember that there are a large number and variety of e-cigarettes. Some of them (such as the product at issue in the litigation) market themselves only "for smoking pleasure" and make no health related claims. Some brands market themselves as having a therapeutic use (e.g. to treat nicotine addiction). And other brands market themselves as harm reduction products. Today's decision concluded that e-cigarettes that make no health-related claims should be regulated at the federal level as tobacco products. To the extent that these products make no health claims, it is unlikely that they will be defined as modified risk tobacco products and will be regulated as traditional tobacco products. As you know, localities are not preempted from regulating the sale of traditional tobacco products in the ways proposed by our regulation. It may well be the case that some brands of e-cigarettes will eventually be determined to be modified risk tobacco products or drug/delivery devices over which we have limited jurisdiction. That does not eliminate the need -- or affect our local authority -- to regulate those e-cigarettes that are likely to be treated at the federal level as ordinary tobacco products.

Eric Lindblom's analysis: In a nutshell, the case finds that e-cigarettes with nicotine derived from tobacco fall under the definition of tobacco product in the FDA tobacco law and may only be regulated by FDA under that law - unless the e-cigarettes are marketed or labeled with therapeutic claims, in which case they fall under FDA's jurisdiction over drugs and devices. Court says FDA has not established that the e-cigarettes in the case were marketed or labeled with any therapeutic claims - but notes that FDA might be able to do so at some point, in which case it could assert jurisdiction using its authority over drugs and devices.

So FDA could simply acknowledge the court's ruling but say it has little impact beyond the e-cigarettes in the case, itself, because virtually all (or maybe all) other e-cigarettes are marketed with therapeutic claims. And FDA could make clear that its current restrictions regarding e-cigarettes, while blocked by the court in regard to the e-cigarettes in that case (at least until FDA establishes they are marketed with therapeutic claims), still remain in full force and

effect in regards to the many other brands of e-cigarettes with therapeutic claims.

In any case, I don't think the ruling does anything to suggest that states and localities do not still need to take aggressive action against e-cigarettes to stop their sale to kids, tax them, and/or ban them if not approved by FDA (either through its drug and device jurisdiction or its tobacco product jurisdiction).

E-cigarettes discussions by Mr. Bill Godshall

Per Simon's inquiry, e-cigarette cartridges are quite difficult to open, and there are many other products on the market (that Simon, Stan or others haven't advocated banning) that can be more easily put into someone else's drink if the goal is to harm/poison the person. An e-cigarette cartridge listed as 16mg nicotine actually contains 16mg/ml of nicotine. But since each e-cigarette cartridge contains less than one ml of total liquid, a 16mg nicotine e-cigarette cartridge actually contains less than 16mg of nicotine. An e-cigarette cartridge (or e-liquid) containing 16mg/ml of nicotine is equivalent to about 1.6% nicotine, while an e-cigarette cartridge (or e-liquid) containing 24mg/ml of nicotine is equivalent to about 2.4% nicotine (although similar to alcohol levels in beer, wine and liquor, there are some differences if/when measured by volume or by weight). But cigarettes and smokeless tobacco products pose a far greater chance (than do e-cigarettes or eliquid) of poisoning children since one tobacco cigarette contains 15-25mg of nicotine, since some smokeless tobacco products contain even higher amounts of nicotine, and since far far more cigarettes and smokeless tobacco products are consumed than are e-cigarettes. People (especially children) are more likely to be harmed by sticking multiple nicotine patches on their skin (as occurred in the spoof movie "Thank You For Smoking"), or by swallowing several pieces of nicotine gum or lozenges, than by breaking, removing and consuming the contents of a an e-cigarette cartridge. And yet (despite claims by Greg Connolly et al), I'm not aware that children are dying (or are being seriously harmed) by swallowing cigarettes or smokeless tobacco products. Brad Rodu wrote an excellent objective analysis of this issue at http://rodutobaccotruth.blogspot.com/2010/04/poisoning-publi... in response to the Connolly et al fearmonger paper alleging that American children are being poisoned by smokeless tobacco products at http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/cgi/content/abstract/p... In the Tobacco Control article posted by Stan today at http://tobaccocontrol.bmj.com/content/early/2010/10/22/tc.20... Trtchounian and Talbot found several valid quality control issues involving e-cigarette products than could have been addressed during the past 18 months (as I've repeatedly advocated) if the US FDA had simply classified and/or promulgated reasonable regulations for e-cigarettes as tobacco products under the FSPTCA (which now appears to be the only regulatory option of the FDA). But instead of objectively reporting and evaluating quality control issues involving e-cigarettes, Trtchounian and Talbot misrepresented their own findings and wrote a fear mongering conclusion "Design flaws Design flaws, lack of adequate labelling and concerns about quality control and health issues indicate that regulators should consider removing ENDS from the market until their safety can be adequately evaluated."
8_19_2011

Page 2

and issued a fear mongering press release entitled "Electronic Cigarettes Are Unsafe and Pose Health Risks, UC Riverside Study Finds" http://newsroom.ucr.edu/news_item.html?action=page&id=2506 In contrast to the irresponsible claims that e-cigarettes contain enough nicotine to harm/poison/kill a person, the only two published studies on nicotine delivery of e-cigarettes at http://www.healthnz.co.nz/2010%20Bullen%20ECig.pdf and http://www.e-cigaretteforum.com/forum/e-cigarette-news/1082... both found that e-cigarettes emit significantly less nicotine than cigarettes, indicating that e-cigarettes may not contain/emit enough nicotine to create addiction. And while Trtchounian and Talbot acknowledged (in the full text of their paper) one of these studies (by Eissenberg) by stating: "In a preliminary study involving humans, ENDS unexpectedly failed to elevate nicotine levels in the blood of smokers, calling into question their usefulness as nicotine delivery devices," the authors failed to acknowledge that both of those studies and two other published surveys found that e-cigarettes can be effective in reducing cravings of smokers at http://www.biomedcentral.com/content/pdf/1471-2458-10-231.pd... and at http://tobaccoharmreduction.org/thr2010yearbook.htm (chapter 9). Regardless, e-cigarette prohibition is not only the LEAST effective way to ensure or improve quality control for e-cigarette products, its also the most effective way to discourage e-cigarette companies from addressing and improving quality control. In contrast, reasonable and responsible FDA regulation of e-cigarettes as tobacco products is the most effective way to ensure quality control for e-cigarette products. Mike Siegel and Carl Phillips have posted excellent commentaries about the Trtchounian and Talbot paper and press release at: http://tobaccoanalysis.blogspot.com/2010/12/new-science-by-p... http://tobaccoanalysis.blogspot.com/2010/12/due-to-flawed-co... http://smokles.wordpress.com/2010/12/06/university-of-califo...

E-cigarettes discussions by Ms. Spike Babaian

Most e-cigarette refill cartridges are sealed with silicone stoppers that close the exposed end. The cartridges do not contain loose liquid. They contain a spongy polyfil material which holds the liquid.

Cartridges sold by some companies are sold in childproof containers (seen here http://www.ecigjudge.com/wp-content/uploads/njoy_cigarettes_...) and are sealed in plastic wrappers. Some are covered with the silicone stoppers I mentioned above.(pictured here http://www.calora.co.za/images/npro-cartridge01.jpg)

These cartridges contain a small cup with the sponge inside (the piece which is usually inside the tube is on the left in this image and you can see the polyfil sponge sticking out) (http://images.sabob.com/products/images/1/NJOY_NPRO_Men_High...)

As far as spiking a drink, there are far better things to poison someone with... rat poison, drain cleaner, etc

The liquids are measures in mg/ml. The typical high nicotine Smoking Everywhere cartridges do not contain 1ml of liquid, but .6 or .7 ml of liquid so even a 16 mg cartridge will only contain 9-10 mg of nicotine.

If a person or child were to swallow a cartridge for an e-cigarette, the rubber stopper would have to come out during the process of digestion or be pulled out prior to being swallowed. The cup holding the sponge which has the nicotine would have to somehow fall out of the tube which holds it and the sponge would need to touch the inside of the persons digestive tract in a place where absorption of the nicotine was likely (intestines, rectum).

Subject: Re: E-Cig safety


Can anyone advise me on the following two issues that I have been asked about by journalists.

Can e-cig refill cartridge be easily opened and the nicotine therein used for nefarious purposes such as spiking a drink? Is the nicotine inside in liquid form? I see that up to 16mg versions are available (http://www.smokingeverywhere.com/cartridges.php) The lethal dose of nicotine in adults is 30-60mg (meaning that just two cartridges might prove fatal if ingested) and that in children 10mg (http://www.inchem.org/documents/pims/chemical/nicotine.htm#DivisionTitle:7.2.1.1 Adults)

Are the cartridges child-proof? What would happen if a child swallowed one?

Page 3 Bill,

You have every right to signal and celebrate a decision with which you agree but you are no oracle and do not have the right or authority to declare "a huge victory for public health and civil justice." I would venture to assume that far more members of GLOBALink think this a problematic ruling than a victory.

Just today, an Open Access report by Trtchounian and Talbot has been posted on the Tobacco Control website and the authors are far less sanguine than you concerning the merits of e-cigarettes. I include the conclusions and a couple of excerpts below, along with the links. The authors have a cautionary tale to tell.

As you have posted to General, I'm responding both here and on the E-Cigs list, but further discussion should be on the latter only, as it was intended for just such rulings and reports.

Electronic nicotine delivery systems: is there a need for regulation? Tob Control Published Online First 7 December 2010

Anna Trtchounian, Prue Talbot

Conclusions

Design flaws, lack of adequate labelling and concerns about quality control and health issues indicate that regulators should consider removing ENDS from the market until their safety can be adequately evaluated.

Truth in advertisement On both websites and in print material, we found numerous statements regarding ENDS that were not based on scientific findings and for which there is no rigorous supporting data. Examples of such statements include: Be careful to avoid inhaling any significant quantity of liquid. Although it gives you a slight tingling sensation, it is not harmful (Liberty Stix); Within 2 weeks, your lung capacity will increase by 30%. Your energy levels will increase. Your throat and lungs will feel markedly better! Wrinkles in your skin will become less noticeable and colour will return to your skin (Liberty Stix). One pack (Smoking Everywhere) was labelled Vitamin, although no indication of what this meant was given. 8_19_2011

Page 4 Discussion ...Used cartridges contained fluid after they ceased producing aerosol. Regulatory agencies need to address how to safely dispose of used cartridges and minimise introduction of nicotine into the environment. Studies documenting hazards associated with disposal of cigarette butts12 13 led to regulation of butt disposal in Australia, where fines are issued to those who do not deposit butts in valid receptacles.14 Residual nicotine in spent ENDS cartridges can leak onto surfaces where conversion to carcinogens could take place.6 Furthermore, as nicotine from used ENDS cartridges leaches into water supplies, it may directly affect aquatic life and could be propagated through the food chain. Proper disposal of ENDS cartridges should be addressed before spent cartridges present a serious health problem. Better regulation of ENDS sales and distribution is needed to protect children and adults from nicotine exposure and possible addiction. Our observations provide evidence that regulators should consider removing ENDS from the market until design features, quality control, labelling, disposal and safety issues have been adequately addressed. http://tobaccocontrol.bmj.com/content/early/2010/10/22/tc.20... http://tobaccocontrol.bmj.com/content/early/2010/10/22/tc.20...

The DC Court of Appeals has ruled against the FDA's attempt to ban e-cigarettes (by claiming they are unapproved drug devices). Decision is at: http://www.e-cigarette-forum.com/forum/e-cigarette-news/9218... This is a huge victory for public health and civil justice.

Hi Maggie, While I am waiting for the letter from our contracts office, I would like to make sure we are ready to get the contract in the our system. I accepted the changes to the last revised scope, and have attached a budget with a guesstimated 3 year spread. Depending on the COI letter, we may not be able to start until January (as the scope currently says). In which case, we will change the budget. Hopefully, we will be instead changing the scope and getting your help with some items this month. So, please take a look at these documents and let me know if they look fine except for having the actual start date. When I get the draft letter I will send it right along. Hopefully you can confirm it and we can execute this one. Sound like a plan? please let me know of any questions.

From: Mahoney, Maggie [mailto:maggie.mahoney@wmitchell.edu] Sent: Tuesday, November 16, 2010 3:05 PM To: Ross-Viles, Sarah Cc: Sherard, Mark; Holt, Lauren; Hamilton, Joy Subject: RE: R/A WA: TCLC Input on Draft E-Cigarette Regulation Great, thanks Sarah. I will put together a letter that copies the language of the contract and send it to you for review. A December 1 start date sounds good, and I look forward to wrapping up the contracting process, as I know you do, too! In the meantime, I accepted the changes in the draft scope of work, with one exception. I thought, based on our exchange from last week, that we werent going to allocate time to particular time periods so that we had flexibility throughout the remaining 15 months, since it would be hard to predict the ebb and flow of work. If that is still okay with you, I deleted the table in the draft scope of work because it just allocated funding over the life of the project and replaced it with a simple paragraph explaining that well invoice you and youll pay us, as the contract says, that our fee is $175 per hour, up to a maximum of $25,000 total. Ive attached it for your review. After I did that, I opened the budget document and see that the template had a lot of stuff that doesnt apply to this contract (e.g., supplies, fringe benefits, etc.). I simplified it to match the content that is in the scope of work. Ive attached it for your review. Please let me know how those two things look and, as I said, Ill draft a letter to match the contract language concerning the conflict issue. Thanks!

Page 3 Hi Maggie - I have the go-ahead that the letter can copy the language of the contract. I do not think it needs to contain much more than that. Thus, it looks like we are in the home stretch. Are you able to put that together to have in hand while we process the contract? The changes to the scope of work look fine to me, I made changes to the budget as discussed. I put December 1 as a start date. A contractor can begin work they will bill for as soon as we have an agreed upon scope of work. I chose the 1st to allow time to put the decision-making safeguards in place. I do know we will want your help in December in preparing for the leg session. Does this work for you? I am also attaching the template we use for contract budgets. I was not sure if you had other expenses besides the hourly fee. Please populate this template as part of the contract. If you need any assistance, Lauren Holt (cc'd above) is an ace. We will start processing the contract - getting Department and County approval - when we finalize these pieces. I will work on the safeguards. Thanks for bearing with us, Sarah

From: Mahoney, Maggie [mailto:maggie.mahoney@wmitchell.edu] Sent: Tuesday, November 16, 2010 3:05 PM To: Ross-Viles, Sarah Cc: Sherard, Mark; Holt, Lauren; Hamilton, Joy Subject: RE: R/A WA: TCLC Input on Draft E-Cigarette Regulation Great, thanks Sarah. I will put together a letter that copies the language of the contract and send it to you for review. A December 1 start date sounds good, and I look forward to wrapping up the contracting process, as I know you do, too! In the meantime, I accepted the changes in the draft scope of work, with one exception. I thought, based on our exchange from last week, that we werent going to allocate time to particular time periods so that we had flexibility throughout the remaining 15 months, since it would be hard to predict the ebb and flow of work. If that is still okay with you, I deleted the table in the draft scope of work because it just allocated funding over the life of the project and replaced it with a simple paragraph explaining that well invoice you and youll pay us, as the contract says, that our fee is $175 per hour, up to a maximum of $25,000 total. Ive attached it for your review. After I did that, I opened the budget document and see that the template had a lot of stuff that doesnt apply to this contract (e.g., supplies, fringe benefits, etc.). I simplified it to match the content that is in the scope of work. Ive attached it for your review. Please let me know how those two things look and, as I said, Ill draft a letter to match the contract language concerning the conflict issue. Thanks! 8_19_2011

I do not think it needs to contain much more than that. Thus, it looks like we are in the home stretch. Are you able to put that together to have in hand while we process the contract? The changes to the scope of work look fine to me, I made changes to the budget as discussed. I put December 1 as a start date. A contractor can begin work they will bill for as soon as we have an agreed upon scope of work. I chose the 1st to allow time to put the decision-making safeguards in place. I do know we will want your help in December in preparing for the leg session. Does this work for you? I am also attaching the template we use for contract budgets. I was not sure if you had other expenses besides the hourly fee. Please populate this template as part of the contract. If you need any assistance, Lauren Holt (cc'd above) is an ace. We will start processing the contract - getting Department and County approval - when we finalize these pieces. I will work on the safeguards. Thanks for bearing with us, Sarah

Page 6 Hi Maggie and David, I hope you are both well. I was wondering if you might have the time to review a draft regulation restricting the sale of eproducts (attached). Our Board of Health is not proposing to go so far as to prohibit their sale entirely, but is interested in restricting their availability to youth. If you have a chance to take a look, I would love to hear your thoughts. I'll be out of the office for the rest of the week but back on Monday. All the best, Anne

Subject: RE: E-cigs prep Questions / clarifications / ideas / deadline? Joy, 1. e-cigs themselves aren't being marketed or packaged as flashy or colorful. The flavors come in to play more w/ the e-liquids. Most of the kits are simply packaged w/ a dosing for nicotine (high, med, low, zero). The two versions we have in the office (if PZ has kept his around) both are in simple black packaging, which is consistent w/ most of the brands I've seen around. The X-Hale02 brand at 7-Eleven is one brand where the colors/flavors come into play, and that's only with their "e-hookah" flavors. 2. We spoke briefly about the locations. As I mentioned, more and more 7-Elevens are carrying the X-Hale02 brand. www.xhaleo2.com - Northgate and Southcenter malls both have the Smoking Everywhere kiosks, and I'm almost certain Alderwood (Snohomish County) does as well. I have also confirmed e-cig units being sold throughout the county including: Capitol Hill Smoke Shop (smoke stick, 51 gold starter pack, cartridges), Holy Smoke (nicstick no-name brand, e-liquid, cartridges), Duvall Cigarland ("clean" and refills $29) and Smokeco Plus in Fall City (fiftyone starter kit $59.) 3. I have a few other images of the Smoking Everywhere kiosk in Southcenter. I had more of the 7-11 ones, but my phone decided to dump those a week or two ago. I can get more of those fairly easily.

I haven't seen much within the county that goes beyond what I've collected as far as vendors/ads. There's a lot online of course, and I previously sent an email w/ a lot of that information. When does James say we should have these items? Let me know what you think, FP

Even when marketed as not containing nicotine, FDA testing detected nicotine in all samples, except for one. * These products have a high appeal to youth. They are sold in convenience stores and mall kiosks and come in candy flavors. The FDA has warned that e cigarettes can increase nicotine addiction among young people and may lead youth to try conventional tobacco products. * Product testing by the FDA has also found detectable levels of known carcinogens and toxic chemicals to which users could potentially be exposed. * E-cigarettes have made the Smoking in Public Places law difficult to enforce because of their resemblance to cigarettes. This has become a problem for business owners and several have contacted the health department with questions about how to handle this. * Public Health inspectors have observed use of electronic cigarettes in public can increase the likelihood that people will break the law by lighting up cigarettes because they see what appears to be someone smoking. I'm also including the addendum that Anne put together earlier this week in light of the latest court ruling.

September 16, 2010 Board of Health approves blueprint for a healthy King County Guidelines seen as outline to assist communities in land use and transportation planning decisions The King County Board of Health today passed a resolution approving and supporting the 2010 Board of Health Guidelines: Planning for Healthy Communities, intended to inform land use and transportation planning decisions to

promote healthy living throughout King County. "Our environment, such as our roads, walking paths and economic infrastructure, has a significant impact on the physical, mental and social well-being of the people in our communities" said Julia Patterson, Chair of the King County Board of Health. "These guidelines are intended to help local jurisdictions ensure that their land use planning decisions do not compromise the public's health, and to serve as a reminder that planning issues remain at the root of some of the most widespread public health problems like obesity and substance abuse." The Board of Health has been actively promoting the goals of healthy eating and active living since 2005 with the King County Overweight Prevention Initiative and other efforts, after an increasing body of evidence has shown that effective land use and transportation planning decisions can help create environments that allow people to be physically active, eat healthy food, and live in safe and healthy places. The Board's planning for Healthy Communities guidelines are intended to inform land use and transportation planners working at regional, county, and city levels of actions. The guidelines include: * Physical Activity: Residents in all communities in King County have access to safe and convenient opportunities for physical activity and exercise. * Nutrition: Residents in all communities in King County have access to healthy, affordable foods. * Harmful Environmental Exposures: Residents in all communities in King County are protected from exposure to harmful environmental agents and infectious diseases. * Injury: o Residents in all communities in King County use transportation systems designed to prevent driver, bicyclist and pedestrian injuries. o Residents in all communities in King County live in safe communities free from violence and fear of violence. * Tobacco Use: Residents in all communities in King County are protected from involuntary exposure to second hand tobacco smoke and children cannot access tobacco products. * Alcohol Use: Residents in all communities in King County are protected from negative impacts of alcohol. * Mental Health and Well-being: Residents in all communities in King County benefit from community design that maximizes opportunities for social connectivity and stress reduction. * Access to Health Care: Residents in all communities in King County have local access to health care services. Urban planning and public health have been linked for nearly a century, starting from the need to prevent infectious disease outbreaks in the early 1900's. More recently public health agencies, including the King County Board of Health, have returned to a focus on urban design as it becomes more apparent that "place" does matter and that the leading causes of death and disability are linked to the environments where we live, work, learn and play. In 2008, the Puget Sound Regional Council adopted VISION 2040, the growth management, environmental, economic, and transportation strategy for the Central Puget Sound Region which contains strategies for promoting the well-being of people and communities, economic vitality, and a healthy environment. Within VISION 2040, the Built Environment and Health section includes broad goal and policies to serve as a platform for counties and cities as they continue to integrate knowledge of public health impacts into their planning activities.

The Board of Health, based on its function to promote and improve public health for all King County residents, determined this an opportune time to provide additional guidance and detail as jurisdictions work to include the VISION 2040 policies on the built environment and health into their planning processes. The Board of Health supports the reintegration of public health into planning decisions as an important strategy to ensure that all people and communities have the opportunity to make healthy choices regardless of their income, education or ethnic background.

"These guidelines are intended to help local jurisdictions ensure that their land use planning decisions do not compromise the public's health, and to serve as a reminder that planning issues remain at the root of some of the most widespread public health problems like obesity and substance abuse." The Board of Health has been actively promoting the goals of healthy eating and active living since 2005 with the King County Overweight Prevention Initiative and other efforts, after an increasing body of evidence has shown that effective land use and transportation planning decisions can help create environments that allow people to be physically active, eat healthy food, and live in safe and healthy places. The Board's planning for Healthy Communities guidelines are intended to inform land use and transportation planners working at regional, county, and city levels of actions. The guidelines include: * Physical Activity: Residents in all communities in King County have access to safe and convenient opportunities for physical activity and exercise. * Nutrition: Residents in all communities in King County have access to healthy, affordable foods. * Harmful Environmental Exposures: Residents in all communities in King County are protected from exposure to

harmful environmental agents and infectious diseases. * Injury: o Residents in all communities in King County use transportation systems designed to prevent driver, bicyclist and pedestrian injuries. o Residents in all communities in King County live in safe communities free from violence and fear of violence. * Tobacco Use: Residents in all communities in King County are protected from involuntary exposure to second hand tobacco smoke and children cannot access tobacco products. * Alcohol Use: Residents in all communities in King County are protected from negative impacts of alcohol. * Mental Health and Well-being: Residents in all communities in King County benefit from community design that maximizes opportunities for social connectivity and stress reduction. * Access to Health Care: Residents in all communities in King County have local access to health care services. Urban planning and public health have been linked for nearly a century, starting from the need to prevent infectious disease outbreaks in the early 1900's. More recently public health agencies, including the King County Board of Health, have returned to a focus on urban design as it becomes more apparent that "place" does matter and that the leading causes of death and disability are linked to the environments where we live, work, learn and play. In 2008, the Puget Sound Regional Council adopted VISION 2040, the growth management, environmental, economic, and transportation strategy for the Central Puget Sound Region which contains strategies for promoting the well-being of people and communities, economic vitality, and a healthy environment. Within VISION 2040, the Built Environment and Health section includes broad goal and policies to serve as a platform for counties and cities as they continue to integrate knowledge of public health impacts into their planning activities. The Board of Health, based on its function to promote and improve public health for all King County residents, determined this an opportune time to provide additional guidance and detail as jurisdictions work to include the VISION 2040 policies on the built environment and health into their planning processes. The Board of Health supports the reintegration of public health into planning decisions as an important strategy to ensure that all people and communities have the opportunity to make healthy choices regardless of their income, education or ethnic background.

We might be able to use the recent surgeon general's report here. We know that in places where e-cigarette use occurs, people have smoked tobacco. (I believe that someone on our investigation team has observed this at Quest, and we should get that fact into the record.) Given the immediate health implications of exposure to SHS, as documented in the new report, even limited tobacco use in public raises concerns.

going to delay the story until Tuesday, so we should be able to connect them on Monday. Katie will send around a rough Q& A shortly. _____________________________________________ From: Hamilton, Joy Sent: Friday, December 10, 2010 2:59 PM To: Apa, James; Neal, Scott; Wood, Maria; Ross, Kathryn Cc: Ross-Viles, Sarah Subject: RE: Board of Health approves blueprint for a healthy King County Here's some quick talking points: E-cigarettes contain nicotine which is the same highly addictive substance in cigarettes. Even when marketed as not containing nicotine, FDA testing detected nicotine in all samples, except for one. These products have a high appeal to youth. They are sold in convenience stores and mall kiosks and come in candy flavors. The FDA has warned that e cigarettes can increase nicotine addiction among young people and may lead youth to try conventional tobacco products. Product testing by the FDA has also found detectable levels of known carcinogens and toxic chemicals to which users could potentially be exposed. E-cigarettes have made the Smoking in Public Places law difficult to enforce because of their resemblance to cigarettes. This has become a problem for business owners and several have contacted the health department with questions about how to handle this. Public Health inspectors have observed use of electronic cigarettes in public can increase the likelihood that people will break the law by lighting up cigarettes because they see what appears to be someone smoking. I'm also including the addendum that Anne put together earlier this week in light of the latest court ruling. << File: Recent Federal Court Decision Regarding One E.doc >> Please let me know if you need anything else.

One weve already discussed is the reasonable regulation to protect kids now, even as FDA looks at further regulation Katie will work up some tough questions that we can flesh out answers for early next week. _____________________________________________ From: Hamilton, Joy Sent: Friday, December 10, 2010 1:13 PM To: Apa, James; Neal, Scott; Wood, Maria; Ross, Kathryn Subject: RE: Board of Health approves blueprint for a healthy King County When do you need the "ta da" press release draft? _____________________________________________

To follow up, Ill be issuing the BOH release today. Vanessa Ho from the P-I has already found it on our web site, so we should expect this to spin up fast.

Ideally, we could push toward Monday and have Bud talk with her then, but if shes determined to roll this out today, its in our best interest to have him available now. Maria do you have his phone number? I havent had time to work on the tough questions, but will send some around later today. -James

September 16, 2010 Board of Health approves blueprint for a healthy King County Guidelines seen as outline to assist communities in land use and transportation planning decisions The King County Board of Health today passed a resolution approving and supporting the 2010 Board of Health Guidelines: Planning for Healthy Communities, intended to inform land use and transportation planning decisions to promote healthy living throughout King County. Our environment, such as our roads, walking paths and economic infrastructure, has a significant impact on the physical, mental and social well-being of the people in our communities said Julia Patterson, Chair of the King County Board of Health. These guidelines are intended to help local jurisdictions ensure that their land use planning decisions do not compromise the publics health, and to serve as a reminder that planning issues remain at the root of some of the most widespread public health problems like obesity and substance abuse. The Board of Health has been actively promoting the goals of healthy eating and active living since 2005 with the King County Overweight Prevention Initiative and other efforts, after an increasing body of evidence has shown that effective land use and transportation planning decisions can help create environments that allow people to be physically active, eat healthy food, and live in safe and healthy places. The Boards planning for Healthy Communities guidelines are intended to inform land use and transportation planners working at regional, county, and city levels of actions. The guidelines include: Physical Activity: Residents in all communities in King County have access to safe and convenient opportunities for physical activity and exercise. Nutrition: Residents in all communities in King County have access to healthy, affordable foods. Harmful Environmental Exposures: Residents in all communities in King County are protected from exposure to harmful environmental agents and infectious diseases. Injury: o Residents in all communities in King County use transportation systems designed to prevent driver, bicyclist and pedestrian injuries. o Residents in all communities in King County live in safe communities free from violence and fear of violence. Tobacco Use: Residents in all communities in King County are protected from involuntary exposure to second hand

tobacco smoke and children cannot access tobacco products. Alcohol Use: Residents in all communities in King County are protected from negative impacts of alcohol. Mental Health and Well-being: Residents in all communities in King County benefit from community design that maximizes opportunities for social connectivity and stress reduction. Access to Health Care: Residents in all communities in King County have local access to health care services. Urban planning and public health have been linked for nearly a century, starting from the need to prevent infectious disease outbreaks in the early 1900s. More recently public health agencies, including the King County Board of Health, have returned to a focus on urban design as it becomes more apparent that place does matter and that the leading causes of death and disability are linked to the environments where we live, work, learn and play. In 2008, the Puget Sound Regional Council adopted VISION 2040, the growth management, environmental, economic, and transportation strategy for the Central Puget Sound Region which contains strategies for promoting the well-being of people and communities, economic vitality, and a healthy environment. Within VISION 2040, the Built Environment and Health section includes broad goal and policies to serve as a platform for counties and cities as they continue to integrate knowledge of public health impacts into their planning activities. The Board of Health, based on its function to promote and improve public health for all King County residents, determined this an opportune time to provide additional guidance and detail as jurisdictions work to include the VISION 2040 policies on the built environment and health into their planning processes. The Board of Health supports the reintegration of public health into planning decisions as an important strategy to ensure that all people and communities have the opportunity to make healthy choices regardless of their income, education or ethnic background.
