Governor Gretchen Whitmer is no longer the lone wolf at the door for the flavored liquid market in the electronic cigarette realm. She has been joined by the U.S. White House.
The White House today revealed plans to ban flavored e-cigarettes, something Whitmer just did last week. She immediately applauded the White House efforts by releasing a statement of her own.
Here’s what Gov. Whitmer had to say following the White House notice:
“I’m glad this administration is doing the right thing and following Michigan’s lead to ban flavored vaping products. This is great news for our kids, our families, and our overall public health. Right now, companies are getting our kids hooked on nicotine by marketing flavors like apple juice, bubble gum, and candy. Banning these flavors is a bold step that will keep our kids healthy and safe from the harmful effects of vaping. I’m proud that Michigan has been a leader on this issue, and I’m ready to continue working to protect our kids and our public health.”
