New York Has Banned The Sale Of Flavoured E-Cigarettes

The US state of New York has moved swiftly to ban the sale of flavoured e-cigarettes following several deaths and lung issues with users.

"Manufacturers of fruit and candy-flavored e-cigarettes are intentionally and recklessly targeting young people, and today we're taking action to put an end to it," he said in a statement.

"At the same time, unscrupulous stores are knowingly selling vaping products to underage youth - those retailers are now on notice that we are ramping up enforcement and they will be caught and prosecuted."

More to come.
