Survey finds e-cigarettes, tobacco products easily available to kids in Yolo County stores

New data released Wednesday reveals that Yolo County has more stores selling flavored tobacco products than other areas in the state, and more of these stores are near schools.

These findings are part of a statewide survey on the availability and marketing of tobacco, alcohol and both unhealthy and healthy food products in stores that sell tobacco - the first time all three categories have been analyzed together.

Yolo County Public Information Officer Beth Gabor reported that between July and October 2013, more than 700 public health representatives, community volunteers and youth collected data for the survey from more than 7,300 diverse retail stores including convenience, supermarket, liquor, tobacco, small market, discount, drug and big-box stores.
