New MA Tobacco Law Puts People At Risk For Illegal Sales

The new law that was passed in November went into effect on June 1

Flavored tobacco products such as flavored vapes and menthol cigarettes are no longer for sale in Massachusetts.

The new law that was passed in November and went into effect on June 1 makes Massachusetts the first state in the country to ban flavored vaping and tobacco products.

You can still purchase flavorless tobacco but it now comes with an extra fee. Massachusetts residents who purchase vaping products must also pay a 75 percent excise tax on that product.

One of the items banned under this law is the sale of menthol cigarettes, a once popular item at Buckeye Bros Smokeshop in downtown Springfield.
