Gov. Cuomo proposes new bill to ban all flavored vaping products in NY

Posted: Updated:

Gov. Andrew Cuomo is pushing to ban all flavored vaping products in New York.

Cuomo is proposing a bill to allow the state Health Department to regulate vaping oils and limit online sales of vaping products. The campaign also includes a new website and an online petition.

"I've included it in my budget, but one way or the other, by April 1, this has to become law, and there's no excuse for it,” says Cuomo, “You're jeopardizing the health of young people."

A judge already blocked New York's first attempt to ban the sale of flavored e-cigarettes in January.

The FDA is banning the sale of fruit, candy, mint and dessert flavors for small cartridge-based e-cigarettes, but menthol and tobacco-flavored e-cigarettes can still be sold.
