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.

President Donald Trump has been calling for a federal ban, however New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has announced an 'emergency executive action' to take them off the shelves in his state.

"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.
