NY State Ban On Sale Of Flavored E-Cigs
Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Sunday he has signed an emergency executive action to ban the sale of flavored electronic cigarettes. This move is meant to combat the increasing number of youth using vape products, largely driven by e-cigarette companies marketing flavors that are intended to get children addicted to nicotine. Cuomo said in a news release that New York State Department of Health Commissioner Howard Zucker will hold a meeting with the Public Health and Health Planning Council this coming week that will formally put the ban in place. The New York State Police is partnering with DOH to conduct undercover investigations across the state under The Adolescent Tobacco Use Prevention Act.
