NY plans to be first state to ban flavored vapes
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — The Cuomo administration says New York state is taking steps that could make it the first state to ban the sale of flavored electronic cigarettes.
A spokesman for Gov. Andrew Cuomo says Friday that the Democrat is concerned about the rise in e-cigarette among young people, calling it an “emerging public health issue.”
The Wall Street Journal first reported late Thursday night that the state Department of Health plans to soon republish regulations banning the sale or possession of flavored e-cigarettes. The regulations could then be adopted after a 60-day period of public comment.
The administration’s plans come as the federal government readies policies requiring strict limits on sales of vaping products increasingly popular among teenagers.
In September, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration deemed teenage use of e-cigarettes an “epidemic.”
