OFFICE OF THE MAYOR
CITY OF CHICAGO


March 28, 2018










TO THE HONORABLE, THE CI TY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICAGO


Ladies and Gentlemen:

At the request of the Commissioner of Public Health, I transmit herewith an ordinance amending various provisions of the Municipal Code regarding e-cigarettes and other tobacco products.

Your favorable consideration of this ordinance will be appreciated.

Mayor


Very truly yours,
ORDINANCE


WHEREAS, The City of Chicago is a home rule unit of government as defined in Article VII, §6(a) of the Illinois Constitution; and

WHEREAS, Pursuant to its home rule power, the City of Chicago may exercise any power and perform any function relating to its government and affairs, including promoting the quality of life, health, safety, and welfare of its citizens; and

WHEREAS, The City of Chicago has an interest in increasing awareness among youth about the risks associated with use of non-cigarette tobacco products ("other tobacco products" or "OTPs"); and
WHEREAS, Tobacco use is the leading cause of preventable disease and death in the United States; and

WHEREAS, The majority of tobacco use begins in adolescence; and

WHEREAS, The use of OTPs is responsible for thousands of deaths in the United States each year - including an estimated 9,000 deaths from cigar use alone - and causes disease in several organ systems, for example:
Cigar use is associated with cancer of the lung, oral cavity/pharynx, larynx, esophagus and pancreas, as well as coronary heart disease and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; and
Smokeless tobacco use is associated with oropharyngeal and digestive system cancers, as well as increased risk for heart disease and stroke, stillbirth and preterm delivery, and Parkinson's disease; and
Pipe smoking is associated with increased risk of lung, head and neck cancers, as well as heart disease and stroke; and
Hookah use is associated with increased risk of lung cancer, respiratory illness, periodontal disease, low birth weight, infectious disease, heart disease, and preterm delivery; and

WHEREAS, There is evidence that e-cigarette use is associated with increased heart rate and diastolic blood pressure immediately following use; and increased coughing, wheezing, and asthma exacerbation in youth; and

WHEREAS, Although the effects of long-term use of e-cigarettes are not known, there is substantial evidence that chemicals in e-cigarette aerosols can cause acute endothelial cell dysfunction, oxidative stress, and DNA damage and mutagenesis, making it scientifically possible that long-term use could increase risk for tissue damage and cancer: and
|1010|
WHEREAS, Research shows that OTPs like cigarillos, cigars and smokeless tobacco all contain addictive levels of nicotine, harmful toxins, and dangerous carcinogens; and

WHEREAS, Although they produce less harmful constituents than combustible cigarettes, there is evidence that e-cigarette aerosols contain toxic substances including carbonyl compounds, volatile organic compounds and carcinogens such as formaldehyde. They also contain addictive levels of nicotine; and

WHEREAS, Exposure to nicotine during adolescence has lasting negative impacts on brain development, affecting addiction, cognition, neural connectivity, and behavioral health. Adolescents can become dependent upon nicotine very soon after starting to use tobacco; and

WHEREAS, According to the U.S. Surgeon General, "the use of products containing nicotine in any form among youth, including in e-cigarettes, is unsafe"; and

WHEREAS, Significant disparities in cigar use and frequency of use exist between different races and ethnicities in Chicago, as African American teens report using cigars on more than two days a month at twice the rate of white teens; and

WHEREAS, In Chicago, Hispanic/Latino and white teens are more likely to use e-cigarettes than African American teens; and

WHEREAS, Tobacco use among Chicago youth is unacceptably high, particularly the use of OTPs, for example:
Although teen cigarette use is at an all-time low of 6%, more teens now use cigars and e-cigarettes than smoke cigarettes - 7.2% of Chicago youth used cigars and 6.6% used e-cigarettes in 2017; and
4.5% used smokeless tobacco (chewing tobacco, snuff or dip) in 2017; and

WHEREAS, Despite steep declines in cigarette use, youth use of other tobacco products in the United States has risen. For example, the use of e-cigarettes among high school students increased from 1.5% in 2011 to 11.3% in 2016; and
WHEREAS, Flavored OTPs are popular among youth. For example, 42.4% of youth who smoke use flavored cigars or flavored cigarettes. Among youth that currently use e-cigarettes, 71.2% started with a flavored product. Research shows that teens who have tried flavored tobacco products even once are 170% more likely to be current smokers than those who have never tried flavored tobacco products; and
WHEREAS, The Family Smoking Prevention and Control Act of 2009 prohibited characterizing flavors in cigarettes, other than menthol, but cigars, chew, e-cigarettes and other forms of OTP come in a wide array of fruity, sweet, dessert, beverage and other flavors; and




?

WHEREAS, Notwithstanding the demonstrated health harms associated with OTP use, research shows that those who use smokeless tobacco and cigars are more likely to believe these products to be less harmful and less addictive than cigarettes:
73% of youth believe e-cigarettes are less harmful than cigarettes and 47.1 % believe that they are less addictive; and
25.8% believe that cigars are less harmful than cigarettes and 31.5% believe they are less addictive; and
20.2% believe that smokeless tobacco is less harmful than cigarettes and 14.0% believe it is less addictive; and

WHEREAS, Lower perceived risk of using OTPs is associated with increased likelihood of their use: and

WHEREAS, Youth and young adult use of e-cigarettes is associated with an increased risk of progressing to cigarette smoking, who then may be at risk of suffering the serious health harms associated with smoking. Young people who move from e-cigarettes to combustible cigarettes are at greater risk for increased frequency, intensity and duration of smoking; and

WHEREAS, Research on internal tobacco industry documents and marketing tactics reveals that the tobacco industry has a history of altering tobacco products to appeal to youth and young adults. For example, tobacco companies have made extensive use of cigarette packages to influence consumer perceptions about the potential risks of their product and have altered the flavors of their products to make them taste lighter and reinforce the idea that they are safer; and

WHEREAS, Tobacco companies' internal research found that new, young users would prefer flavored, smokeless tobacco products in order to mask the taste of tobacco and improve mouth feel. The research also found that marketing that stressed flavors and freshness were most successful for prompting initiation; and

WHEREAS. Tobacco companies have manipulated their products to skirt tobacco control measures that aim to reduce youth initiation and use. For example, in response to price increases through taxes, cigar manufacturers have added sepiolite, a clay material found in kitty litter, to the filters of their little cigars to make them heavier and thus taxed at the lower rate applicable to larger cigars, making them cheaper and more appealing to youth; and

WHEREAS. Studies have shown that youth are especially vulnerable to marketing for tobacco products, and that exposure to marketing leads to higher initiation rates; and

WHEREAS, The tobacco industry has an extensive history of deceiving consumers, for example:
• From United Stales v. Philip Morris USA Inc., 566 F.3d 1095, 1127 (D.C. Cir. 2009):

There is "direct evidence that [the tobacco industry was] aware of the health risks of secondhand smoke," yet it denied the health risks with statements that were made with "fraudulent intent"; and

O The tobacco industry engaged in a "campaign of statements intended to mislead the public into believing that giving up smoking is not markedly more difficult than giving up everyday habits"; and

O While the tobacco industry denied any adverse health impacts of smoking "[it] internally acknowledged as fact that smoking causes disease and other health hazards"; and
• From the Federal Trade Commission, which received complaints about the deceptive practices of cigar manufacturers:
o "After consideration of the National Cancer Institute's findings in its Cigar
Monograph on the serious health risks of regular cigar use, and the failure of cigar advertising and labeling to disclose these health risks, the Commission negotiated consent agreements with the seven largest cigar companies to implement health warnings on cigar labeling and advertising nationwide"; and
WHEREAS, The tobacco industry's '"essential position on the relationship of smoking and health remains virtually unchanged' from the fraudulent positions it first took in the 1950s," evidencing a continuing pattern of consumer deception (from Phillip Morris USA); and

WHEREAS, Only 41.2% of 12th graders believe that there is great harm associated with the regular use of smokeless tobacco, a figure which remained essentially unchanged from 1999 to 2010 and which the Surgeon General attributed to:
<
The smokeless tobacco industry's participation in the debate about the supposed reduction in harm seen in switching from cigarettes to smokeless tobacco; and
The smokeless tobacco industry marketing their products in a way that subtly suggests they are safer than cigarettes; and

WHEREAS, Cigar users, especially African American teens, believe that cigars are less harmful than cigarettes, and young adults are more likely to rate cigars as less risky compared to smokeless tobacco products and cigarettes; and

WHEREAS. E-cigarette marketing includes a variety of messages to make the products more appealing, including messages that they are safer, healthier, an alternative to smoking cigarettes or a "new" way to smoke, and that they can be used places where smoking is prohibited. They are marketed using the same tactics that have been used by tobacco companies in the past to promote cigarettes to youth and young adults including flavorings, media channels|1010|
that have broad reach with young people, and themes highlighting sexual content and customer satisfaction; and

WHEREAS, 51.8% of 12th graders that used e-cigarettes believed that the vapor contained only flavorings and only 11.1% believed it contained nicotine and 60% of teens believe that their use causes little or only some harm as long as they aren't used daily; and

WHEREAS, A 2018 study in Pediatrics showed that many youth who believe "all tobacco products are harmful" do not believe their own tobacco products are harmful - for instance, if they only use e-cigarettes (74.6%), hookah (56.0%), smokeless tobacco (41.8%), or cigarettes (15.5%); and

WHEREAS, The same 2018 study in Pediatrics found that many youth tobacco users do not realize they are using tobacco products at all. Youth in middle and high school who deny using tobacco products at all include 82.2% of those who,use only roll-your-own or pipe tobacco, 59.7% of those who only use e-cigarettes, 56.6% of those who only use cigars, 44.0% of those who only use hookah, 38.5% of those who use only smokeless tobacco, and 26.5% of those who use only cigarettes; and

WHEREAS, The City of Chicago has an additional interest in increasing awareness of the availability of cessation assistance; and

WHEREAS, The Clinical Practice Guideline Treating Tobacco Use and Dependence recommends that users of smokeless tobacco be "identified, strongly urged to quit, and provided counseling cessation interventions" and that users of cigars, pipes and other non-cigarette forms of tobacco be "identified, strongly urged to quit, and offered the same counseling interventions recommended for cigarette smokers"; and

WHEREAS, Research shows that telephone-based counseling appeals to young adults more than other methods and has been demonstrated to be an effective means of reaching young adult smokers; and

WHEREAS, Studies of quitline advertising in Australia have found that the pairing of health effect and quitline modelling advertisements can increase efficiency in generating calls; and

WHEREAS, Quitlines are an effective intervention specifically recommended by the Community Preventive Services Task Force and supported by over 60 peer-reviewed journal articles; and

WHEREAS,-Research has found that, when quitlines are available to the general public, tobacco cessation increases by 3.1%, saving a median estimate of $2,358 per quality-adjusted life year: and

WHEREAS, The Illinois Tobacco Quitline is a government-funded program; and|1010|
WHEREAS, The Illinois Tobacco Quitline is trained to help tobacco users to quit; and

WHEREAS, The inclusion of the tobacco quitline number in text warnings on tobacco packaging in the Netherlands and the United Kingdom increased calls to the quitline; and

WHEREAS, Research on health warnings shows that such statements can be effective in changing people's behavior, for example:
Studies showing that text health warnings on tobacco product packages can increase health knowledge and perceptions of risk, promote smoking cessation among both youth and adults, and discourage nonsmokers from wanting to smoke. The more visible the warning, the greater the effect; and
Studies show that addiction warnings for e-cigarettes influences consumers' risk perception and decision to try the product; and
Studies on point-of-sale programs showing that signs, posters, and shelf tags encouraging healthier food options have increased sales of healthy food; and
International studies showing that new requirements for tobacco product packaging that include information referring people to quitlines have been associated with an increase in calls to the quitlines; and

WHEREAS, The City of Chicago has an additional interest in reducing the accessibility of tobacco to youth; and

WHEREAS, Research suggests that youth who have never used tobacco become more likely to use it after receiving tobacco coupons; now, therefore,
