Good for River Forest, for its unanimous village board, for its decision last week to outright ban the sale of flavored e-cigarettes. There is no defense for selling these products which are unequivocally targeted at our kids, intended only to hook them on a foul and dangerous smoking habit.

Yes, there are state and federal efforts looming that will make such a ban much more widespread. That’s good. But that’s no reason for River Forest to delay its action to protect our children right this minute.
