Judge Blocks NY Ban On Flavored Vaping Products

The judge said regulating the vaping industry is a job for the state Legislature

A judge has blocked New York state from enforcing an executive order banning flavored vaping products.

Acting state Supreme Court Justice Catherine Cholakis ruled that the state Public Health and Health Planning Council overstepped its authority last September when it issued a ban on e-cigarettes and e-liquids flavored with anything other than tobacco or menthol.

The judge said regulating the vaping industry is a job for the state Legislature, not the executive branch.

The emergency ban was challenged by the Vapor Technology Association and two of its member businesses.

The judge granted their request for an injunction against enforcing the ban.
