    The New York State Assembly has passed a bill that will outlaw sales of flavored vaping products (except tobacco), and prohibit online sales of all vaping products. The ban was passed with no public debate and was part of the larger budget bill that keeps the state running. Gov. Andrew Cuomo is expected to sign it into law immediately. The state did not ban menthol cigarettes or flavored cigars—just vapor products. More than 10 percent of all U.S. residents will be prohibited from buying flavored vaping products when New York’s ban takes effect. New York will become the fourth state to ban flavors

    The law includes an exemption for flavored products approved for sale by the FDA through its Premarket Tobacco Application (PMTA) process. That was included after lobbying by either JUUL Labs or the tobacco companies that sell e-cigarettes (Reynolds, Japan Tobacco, Imperial). No vaping products have been approved by the FDA yet, and it isn’t known if the FDA will approve any flavored products.

    The flavor ban will take effect 45 days after the governor signs it. The other parts of the law are effective July 1. They include:

    · Online sales of all vaping products are banned

    · Pharmacies are no longer allowed to sell any nicotine-containing product except FDA-approved cessation products

    · Coupons for vaping and tobacco products are banned

    · Manufacturers must post ingredient lists and detailed technical information about e-liquid and vapor constituents (this doesn’t apply to smoked tobacco products)

    The state government's disregard of minority opinion will undoubtedly cause the anger and disgust of vaping consumers. Are you from New York state? What do you think of the ban passing process that silenced vapers’ voices?
