Effective immediately, the state of Michigan has banned the sale of flavored nicotine vaping products.

Governor Whitmer first announced her intention to ban the sale of the products back on Sept. 4, making Michigan the first state in the nation to announce such a ban.

Retailers and resellers, including online sellers, have 14 days to comply.

“I’m proud that Michigan has been a national leader in protecting our kids from the harmful effects of vaping,” Whitmer said. “For too long, companies have gotten our kids hooked on nicotine by marketing candy-flavored vaping products as safe. That ends today. This bold action will protect our kids and our overall public health.”
