Michigan will become the first state in the nation to ban flavored vaping products under emergency rules announced Wednesday by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. It will be issued by the state Department of Health and Human Services, which has found youth vaping to be a public health emergency.
The six-month ban will go into effect immediately and will ban sales of sweet, fruity and minty e-cigarettes in retail or online stores, as first reported by the Washington Post. Tobacco-flavored e-cigarette products won’t be banned.
The ban can be extended up to a year, the Post reported. Over that time, state officials will work to form permanent regulations to ban flavored vaping products. Officials told the Post that the Republican-majority Michigan Legislature could block the rules but that the governor would veto any attempt to do so.
