The Michigan Flavor Ban | We Need Your Help!

The Michigan Flavor Ban | We Need Your Help!

Being that you're reading this, more than likely you've already heard the news. Michigan, specifically our Governor, is now the first state to ban flavored e-cigarette and vaping products. This action takes effect immediately and bans all flavors except tobacco flavors, though, includes menthol flavors as well.

This is a truly unfortunate turn of events for Michigan smokers and this decision was based on faulty research and a lack of understanding this industry. This cannot stand and requires the attention of not just Michigan residents, but all citizens of this great United States. This precedent cannot be set, we must stand against it, because if Michigan can do it - your state can too. We stand firmly behind others who say that Youth vaping needs to stop, but banning flavors that have been essential for Adult Smokers is not the path to do it. We need enforcement of age restrictions, not further legislating an entire industry into oblivion.

Please, take a moment to read the below statement by CASAA and take action as they suggest. We have been calling and emailing non-stop since this news broke. Please, make your voice heard! The vaping community must stand together! We will be doing everything in our power to combat this severe overreaction and overreach by our Governor.

The governor’s office transferred me to the constituents line and they did not pick up 5 times. This is crazy and unconstitutional. I’m writing a letter then. Im all in whatever it takes. I live in GA and my county wants to ban flavors because a 3yr old drank ejuice. It has a childproof lid it’s bad parenting not the flavor. We should ban flavored alcohol too. What about flavored blunt wraps? It all cuz of this Weed thing. They should legalize it all around or not. Then people wont buy blackmarket carterages. I’m appalled. Thank you for everything.

This is absolute Lunacy. First Vaping is here to stay, the Genie is out of the bottle. All you do when you put a Prohibition on some thing is create a huge" Black Market". Most of this anti vaping nonsense is being driven by people who do not care about you, me, or “THE CHILDREN” it’s about MONEY it always is. The children are being used by nefarious actors! Big Govt’ has watched it’s tax money from the big tobacco settlement disappear from people moving from smoking to vaping. The state and local Gov’ts have floated huge bonds and spent millions if not billions in anticipation of this huge windfall of cash. Those bonds are coming due and the dollars are not there. You know when Black Markets are created nothing good comes from it, just look at the history of our country and Prohibitions, Booze, drugs etc. not a real winning strategy. I do not understand in this “Land of the Free” why Politicians want to jump right to a BAN! In closing people are going to Vape because WE don’t want to go back to the perfectly legal but terminal stinkies.
