I consider these 114 parklands part of our heritage and I want them to be available to Californiaâ€™s children for generations to come.â€The bill would require that the fines be deposited into the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy Fund specifically to be used to pay the costs of any repairs or clean up related to those violations.The Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy is a state agency created in 1980 to preserve open space, parks and wilderness in Southern California. The 69,000 acres that make up the Conservancy stretch from the Pacific Ocean through the Santa Monica Mountains and extend east to include parts of the San Gabriel Mountains, the Verdugo Hills and the San Rafael Hills in Pasadena.

MANILA – President Rodrigo Duterte hasformally banned vaping or the use of electronic cigarettes in public places. All devices forming components ofENDS/ENNDS or HTPs are now subject to the product standards imposed by theDepartment of Trade and Industry and the FDA. Over a million Filipinos usee-cigarettes according to the Department of Health, which has repeatedly warnedthat e-cigarettes are not a proven nicotine replacement therapy and can causelung illness./PN He added: “You know ang cigarettes, the confirmed chemicalthere that is not good for humans is nicotine. It is habit-forming. It is toxicand it kills people.” “[T]here is a need to regulate accessto and use of ENDS/ENNDS, heated tobacco products and other novel tobaccoproducts to address the serious and irreversible threat to public health,prevent the initiation of non-smokers and the youth, and minimize health risksto both users and other parties exposed to emissions,” the EO stated. “I will ban it. I will ban the use andimportation. You know why? Because it is toxic and the government has the powerto issue measures to protect public health and public interest,” Duterte saidthen. In one of his speeches last year,President Duterte said he planned to ban the use of vape products in publicplaces as he likened vaping to smoking tobacco cigarettes which he earlierprohibited nationwide. Other novel tobacco products will beregulated in accordance with the law and other issuances while establishmentsthat manufacture, distribute, import, and sell e-cigarettes are required to geta license to operate from the FDA. On vaping, he said, “sabi nila electronic. Don’t give me thatshit. Better stop it because I will order your arrest if you do it in a room. Iam now ordering law-enforcing agencies to arrest anybody vaping in public,which is like smoking. You cannot do it inside the room. That’s full of shit.You contaminate people.” Released yesterday, Duterte’sExecutive Order No. 106 also prohibited the sale of e-cigarettes to minors andrequires the registration of such products with the Food and DrugAdministration (FDA).
