Protecting Youth from Tobacco Products
Ban the Sale of Flavored Vaping Products
Legislation will ban the sale of all flavored nicotine vaping products, including menthol. Flavored products are especially popular among young people, and in many cases, are intentionally designed to appeal to them.
Restrict Vaping Ads Targeted to Youth
Legislation will ban all vaping-related ads targeted to youth. Advertisers will also not be allowed to make vaping product safety claims or pitch vaping products as smoking cessation options without FDA-approval.
Ban Harmful Unregulated Carrier Oils
The Department of Health will be empowered to ban the sale of vaping carrier oils that include chemicals or ingredients that when inhaled through a vaping device are deemed to be dangerous.
