New York Bans Vaping

And a Utah Representative wants to Follow suit

In response to what he’s calling a “vaping crisis,” New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has announced he’s taking an “emergency executive action” to outlaw the sale of flavored e-cigarettes and vape juices in the state. “Manufacturers of fruit and candy-flavored e-cigarettes are intentionally and recklessly targeting young people, and we’re taking action to put an end to it,” Cuomo says. “We are taking another nation-leading step to combat a public health emergency.”

The ban, which will go into effect October 4th, comes after Michigan became the first state to outlaw flavored e-cigarettes last week. So far, six deaths are suspected of being linked to vape usage. By contrast, an average of 1,300 U.S. residents dies every day from cigarette smoking.
