The Millbrae City Council is considering a law to ban the sale of all flavored tobacco products and devices. Considering that shisha, the product used in hookah, is by its very nature is flavored, this ordinance would result in an all-out ban on all hookah in the entire state.

We need your help immediately to send a message to the City Council asking for an amendment to exempt hookah.

Hookah is a cultural practice by people with Middle Eastern, Persian, Armenian, Turkish, and Indian heritage. Hookah is a part of a cultural heritage that has been around for thousands of years. It is the centerpiece of cultural, business, and social meetings among several people and is often offered to guests as a sign of hospitality and respect. Therefore, a ban on hookah is a ban on our cultural practice.
