    The ordinance bans all flavored e-cigarette and vaping liquid flavors except for tobacco. Mayor Bill de Blasio will either sign the bill or let it pass into law, his deputy press secretary Avery Cohen said, which will make New York the largest city in the U.S. to ban all vaping flavors except tobacco.

    I'd rather be in some dark hollow,
    where the sun don't ever shine,
    than to be in some big city,
    in a small room,
    with flavors on my mind.

    New York City has some of the highest cigarette taxes in the country. The city gets $1.50 a pack on top of federal and state taxes. There are still close to a million smokers in the city. Assume the each smoke a pack a day; that would be something on the order of half a billion dollars in potential revenue.

    But I'm sure this has nothing to do with their flavor ban. :rolleyes:

    Does anyone know if this applies only to brick and mortar stores or does it include online sales to NYC? I order from Backwoods Blends which is in Tillson, NY. Will she have a problem mailing out flavored e-juices?

    Thanks for any replies!

    Did a google search no mention of stores just a total ban on all flavors.
    So not sure but think a total ban may mean just that total.
    Time will tell.

    Probably to court.

    Wouldn't it be easier to have politicians that thought you could make your own decisions?

    Should the courts decide to ban flavored e-liquids and flavorings, they set a precedence. i.e. Segue to the banning of flavored alcoholic beverages.

    The list is endless. Should this such a ban be imposed, it could prove disasterous for the multi-billion dollar flavored alcohol industry, thus... the U.S. economy.

    I doubt it. Alcohol use is socially acceptable. Heck, it's almost a rite of passage when someone hits 21.

    Nah. The government is making a ton of money from alcohol sales. They're not going to kill that cash cow.

    OTOH, if the government can slap a 50% tax on everything regarding vaping, they'll be running PSA's touting vaping as the best way to quit smoking.

    I suppose. Why not just tax flavored liquids?
