Flavored Vape Ban: NY Outlawing Flavored E-Cigarettes

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announces flavored e-cigarette ban state today Cuomo pushes for flavored e-cig ban, citing risk to youth

"We would ban all flavors besides tobacco and menthol", he said.

He said that while vaping was "technically" better than smoking, "the only situation, in my mind, factually, that justifies vaping is if you had a person that said, 'I now smoke, and I have tried every other device to stop smoking".

With respect to the recent illnesses reported as a result of vaping, patients using vape products reported a variety of symptoms, developing over a period of days to weeks, including: pulmonary symptoms (cough, shortness of breath, chest pain), gastrointestinal symptoms (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea), fatigue, fever, headache, and weight loss.

The push at the state and federal levels to ban certain vaping products comes as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said last week that 380 confirmed or probable cases of lung disease associated with e-cigarettes had been identified in 36 states and the U.S. Virgin Islands, with six confirmed deaths.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announces flavored e-cigarette ban state today

For now the state's ban does not include menthol products, which could prove a helpful transition for menthol cigarette smokers. Cuomo said vaping was risky and that he was concerned fruit- and candy-flavored e-cigarettes were leading young people to get hooked on nicotine. "At a minimum, it is addicting young people to nicotine at a very early age". New Jersey is also considering a ban, but it would cover all vaping products, not just the flavored ones.

The proposed ban, which would take effect as early as October 4, comes amid both a spate of vaping-related illnesses and deaths, and a nationwide push to ban flavored e-cigarettes that can appeal to kids. Association president Harold Wimmer added that he supported a federal ban on all flavoured vaping products, saying "While today's announcement was well-intentioned, it will drive our youth to use menthol-flavoured products in even greater numbers". He's concerned the ban would hurt his business. "It is getting young people addicted to nicotine". New companies that were not part of the tobacco settlement in 1998 are not so prohibited. "We would pass a law in the state that says all such companies are prohibited from marketing to young people", Cuomo said.

The governor also said authorities would target stores selling such products to underage persons, warning: "Those retailers are now on notice that we are ramping up enforcement and they will be caught and prosecuted".

Retailers found selling tobacco and vaping products to underage individuals will now face criminal penalties in addition to civil penalties.
