Denver City Council Will Vote On Flavored Tobacco, Vape Juice Ban

Prohibition could be coming to Denver

Prohibition could soon be coming to Denver, although alcohol won’t be banned. Instead, on October 6, a Denver City Council committee will vote on a proposal to prohibit the sale of all flavored tobacco products, including flavored vape juices.

“Vaping, particularly youth vaping, is a public health crisis in Denver, across the state and across the country. The ban is specific to flavors because it is the thing that kids identify as what drew them to smoking in the first place, and the goal here is to get kids not to smoke in the first place,” says Councilwoman Amanda Sawyer, who is co-sponsoring the initiative with Councilwoman Debbie Ortega. Sawyer became inspired to work on the ordinance after the principal at her child’s middle school called to say that Sawyer’s sixth-grader was on a text chain with a group of students, “one of whom was trying to purchase flavored vape products off TikTok and resell it to their friends,” she recalls.
