Communities in the Sacramento area are watching how a Yolo County ban on flavored tobacco is working.
County supervisors voted on the ban last fall, and it went into effect May 1.

"I believe that the cities will probably take a look at how it works in Yolo County and the unincorporated areas," says Saylor. "So we've done several things together, and one will take a lead and then another will step forward.
Oakland City Council voted unanimously around midnight Wednesday to ban sales of flavored tobacco. The law requires a second approval, and would take effect in 2018.
San Francisco did the same thing last month.
