ALBANY, N.Y. – In an effort to end vaping across the state, Gov. Andrew Cuomo launched the #NoVapeNY campaign, as well as a new anti-vaping website in support of his legislation to combat vaping.
The campaign calls for a ban on all flavored vape products and restriction on advertisements aimed at kids.
"This is a scourge on our state and our nation: if these chemicals don't kill you, you wind up addicted to nicotine. New York is leading the nation in confronting this new and deadly epidemic, and this year we will continue to lead by banning flavored e-cigarette products and vaping ads aimed at youth, helping to keep our children safe and preventing them from forming unhealthy and life-long addictions," said Cuomo.
The legislation would authorize the Department of Health to regulate vape sales and prohibit the sale of vaping products online, over the phone or through the male. This would allow only registered retailers to purchase and sell vape stock.
