News Radio station WCBS 880 is reporting that Yonkers is looking to ban the sale of flavored e-liquid products. If passed, it would make Yonkers the first city in New York to pass a flavor ban.
Mayor Mike Spano said, “Flavored e-cigarettes really aren't about helping adults quit smoking and what we're trying to do here is about stopping children from starting.”
City Councilman Mark Levine agrees with the Mayor’s stance on banning all flavors, leaving flavorless and tobacco flavored e-liquids exempt.
Mayor Mike Spano plans on submitting legislation to the City Council to ban the products soon.
