N.Y. state wants to out­law fla­vored e-cig­a­rette sales

Las Vegas Review-Journal - - BUSINESS -

New York state is tak­ing steps to ban the sale of fla­vored elec­tronic cig­a­rettes in the hopes of curb­ing a sharp rise in the use of va­p­ing prod­ucts by young peo­ple, the Cuomo ad­min­is­tra­tion said Fri­day.

The state Depart­ment of Health pub­lished its pro­pos­als for ban­ning e-cig­a­rettes in the New York State Registry on Wed­nes­day. The agency later with­drew them to al­low more time for le­gal re­view. The reg­u­la­tions will be re­pub­lished soon, the agency said. They could then be adopted af­ter a 60-day pe­riod of pub­lic com­ment.

The fed­eral gov­ern­ment plans to re­quire strict lim­its on the re­tail sale of most fla­vored e-cig­a­rettes.
