Governor Confident Flavored Vaping Products Ban Legal

Governor Whitmer is confident her action to ban flavored vaping products in Michigan will hold up to any legal challenges.

The Governor says she put it to her lawyers and the Attorney General before ordering the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services to issue emergency rules outlawing the sale and marketing of the products. Whitmer said years ago, it was determined it was harmful to have cartoon characters marketing cigarettes to kids, and says having flavored vape products next to candy and marketed as a healthy alternative to smoking is just as dangerous.
