Attorney General Becerra Announces New $30 Million Law Enforcement Grants Program Aimed to Reduce Illegal Sales of Tobacco

Sacramento, CA...California Attorney General Xavier Becerra today announced a new grant program to reduce the illegal sale of tobacco products, especially to minors. The $30 million grant program, established and funded by the California Healthcare, Research and Prevention Tobacco Tax Act of 2016 (Prop. 56), will be available to local law enforcement agencies throughout California starting in March 2018.





Approved by voters in 2016, Prop. 56 increased taxes on cigarettes and other tobacco products by $2.00 starting in April 2017. The initiative specifically allocates $30 million of annual revenue to the California Department of Justice. These funds will support local law enforcement investigations intended to reduce the illegal sale of tobacco products to minors.

Eligible law enforcement agencies must submit applications to the California Department of Justice by March 23, 2018. Grant applications will be assessed for their potential to improve enforcement of laws relating to the sale, marketing, and restrictions on the use of tobacco products.

Additional information on application requirements and eligibility criteria is available here.

      What does Becerra care? It's not his money, it's government money and there's always plenty of that. Just give it a little time and you'll see this program show up as one of his claims to fame in his next political campaign.

      Isn't this just another battle in the "war on drugs" that liberals so despise? They keep telling us that a "war on drugs" is futile but then they turn around and dump another $30,000,000 on it because it's a drug they don't like. Their drugs are "good" and the other guy's are "bad".

      Besides, $30,000,000 is roughly what will be squandered every day for the next 10 years on the new Jerry Brown Express railway. Just a drop in the bucket folks.

        Becerra should get back to real crime, like arresting waiters that give you plastic straws with your drink.

      Its crazy how California can have millions out of work, homelessness everywhere, water pollution from all these growers, a porous border, rampant crime and these politicians keep making more and more bills over trivial crap.
      Seriously?
      It doesn't matter if your a democrat or republican when it comes to this new bill.
      Neither side can tell me with a straight face that 30 million dollars couldn't be used on something far more important.

      Thats the problem with this state, more laws than people. Lifetime politicians who are just throwing bills out to spend money rather than getting out of their ivory walled towers and see what is actually happening here.

        Strange how some states can get along just fine with a part time legislature that only meets every other year. Their members are forced to find something useful to do with their lives between sessions instead of just being parasites.

Is the Legislature blissfully unaware that we have a small "unfunded Liability" problem? Where exactly, is that money coming from?

    Reading is fundamental. The answer to your question can be found in the article you’re commenting. Take another swing at the apple.

I want to see this guy's green card! Notice, all the big spenders in Ca. Have a (D) behind their name! Let's try something different and put a Republican or Libertarian in as Gov. ! Can't hurt to give it a try! All we get with these Snowflakes are ridiculous laws, more felons on the loose, trains and tunnels that waist billions, come on we can do better than this!
