Illegal Sale of Flavored E-cigarette and Pod in California
Police confiscated 6298 flavored e-cigarettes and pods worth approximately $189,000 during a random compliance check at Magic Theater Smoke Shop.

According to a report from the San Mateo Police Department, on the afternoon of August 15th, police conducted a random compliance inspection at a store called Magic Theater Smoke Shop and seized 6298 flavored e-cigarettes and pods.


Police from the Youth Services Department reported witnessing a store employee selling flavored tobacco products to a customer. However, it is worth noting that as of November last year, the state of California has passed the SB793 bill, which strictly prohibits the sale of any e-cigarette devices, including flavored e-cigarettes, e-liquids, pods, and the like.


A total of 6,298 flavored e-cigarettes and pods, with an estimated value of approximately $189,000, were seized in this operation. These items have been confiscated and the investigation is still ongoing.


The Saint Matthew Police Department is currently coordinating with the Local District Attorney's Office of Saint Matthew County as they prepare to file charges.
