NY Governor Andrew Cuomo annouces flavored E-Cigarette ban in New York.
According to the @nytimes , Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo of New York announced on Sunday that he would “pursue emergency regulations this week to quickly ban the sale of flavored e-cigarettes, in the midst of a surge of vaping-related illnesses and deaths.” If New York does ban flavored e-cigarettes, it would become the second state following Michigan, who already has this ban in place since the beginning of this month, according to the New York Times.
Mr. Cuomo said e-cigarettes are a growing health crisis, with illnesses related to traditional tobacco products.
Amit Patel, an employee at E Smoke & Convienience in Manhattan said if a ban were to go into effect, “my business is dead.” He estimated that 70 percent of business at the shop “came from the dozens of flavors of e-cigarettes he sells, including Swedish Fish and Pink Lemonade.” Some e-cigarette users who turned to vaping products to quit traditional cigarettes said the ban could mean going back to old habits.
