Governor Andrew Cuomo has accepted New York State Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker’s recommendation to include menthol in the ban of selling flavored e-cigarettes and nicotine e-liquids. This comes after the state banned the sale of e-cigs and nicotine e-liquids on Sept. 17, 2019.
Currently, 63% of young people are using menthol e-cigs. Including menthol in the the ban will combat its rising use by young people.
