The New York City Council has passed legislation that would make New York the first major American city to ban most flavored e-cigarettes. This is New York City Councilmember Mark Levine.
Councilmember Mark Levine: “The slow pace at which this country has responded to the teen vaping epidemic has been an epic failure. We did nothing as these sleek new devices with an intense dose of nicotine started to hit the market or as shelves started to fill up with every fruity, minty, candyish flavor you can think of, flavors that are clearly appealing to kids. We did nothing when Juul and other companies started to market their products on social media with stylish young people promoting 'Juuling' as a cool lifestyle choice.”
New York’s move came after President Trump reversed course and refused to sign a memo banning most flavored vaping products.
