Temporary Halt to NY Flavor Ban!

October 03, 2019

After a punishing month of September for vapers and the vaping industry, we could all use a bit of good news. Today we got it.

A judge has issued a temporary halt to New York Governor Cuomo's "emergency" ban on flavored vape juice. Early reports suggest the judge wanted to hear how vaping itself, rather than illegal THC cartridges, was causing death and illness necessitating the drastic measure.

NY Vapor Flavor Ban Halted

The order temporarily halts the enforcement of Governor Cuomo's flavor ban, granting at least a stay of execution to the vapers, vape shops and vape manufacturers who were about to find themselves in a cold, bleak world where adults are only allowed to vape e-liquid that tastes like cigarettes.

Governor Cuomo drew the ire of vapers everywhere when, while banning flavored vape juice while leaving cigarettes untouched and available, he flippantly remarked, "Vaping is better than smoking. Technically, yes, but so what?"

In the wake of his ban being temporarily struck down by the courts, snarky vapers were quick to take to Twitter to mock him:

While this fight and the federal flavor ban are far from over, this small victory has been a welcome moment of relief in an otherwise dark time.
