New Yorkers rally to restrict sale of flavored tobacco


Elected officials and local advocates kicked off a campaign Wednesday that zeroes in on flavored tobacco products being sold across the city.

The group wants legislation passed that will restrict the sale of the products some say are being directly marketed to children.

Flavors include cotton candy and gummy bear.

The number of smoking New Yorkers has gone down in recent years, but many want to see the number fall even lower.
