UNITED STATES (WSYR-TV) — Juul, the leading e-cigarette company in the U.S. will stop selling flavored products. Only tobacco, mint and menthol flavors will remain for sale in stores and only in states that still allow the sale of vaping products.
Juul also recently announced it was suspending all broadcast, print and digital product advertising in the U.S.
In the meantime, Governor Andrew Cuomo joined other governors from across the northeast for the Regional Cannabis and Vaping Policy Summit in New York City.
The lawmakers discussed issues related to regulations and policies when it comes to the public health threat of vaping-related lung disease and legalizing marijuana.
New York banned flavored e-cigarettes in September, but a state appeals court pun the ban on hold earlier this month. A motion hearing is scheduled for Friday.
