Vape companies based in Michigan and New York are giving their respective states a fight when it comes to bans.
Other states, cities and municipalities need to take note here, as business owners across the country are not going to take these unlawful actions based on overreach lying down and are quite likely to do the same.
Times Union is reporting that a civil action suit has been brought against the state of New York by retailers Perfection Vapes and Benevolent E Liquids as well as the Vapor Technology Association. The suit calls the state ban unlawful and requests that the court for a preliminary injunction to put it on hold while the case is litigated.
Detroit Free Press reports that Michigan is getting help from two Republican lawmakers against Whitmer’s efforts in the Wolverine State. Rep. Steven Johnson, R-Wayland, introduced a bill Tuesday that would ban the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services from banning the sale of flavored vapes that have a nicotine level of 2% or less.
Meanwhile, Rep. Beau LaFave, R-Iron Mountain, introduced a bill last week that would prohibit the state from implementing rules that limit the production, sale or use of vaping products.
Keep breaking those limits on freedom, vapers.
