Rhode Island Falls as the Fourth State Vape Ban
The hits keep coming. Rhode Island followed Massachusetts just one day later with a statewide flavored vape ban by executive order. Governor Gina Raimondo is banning the sale of flavored vape products throughout Rhode Island for the next 180 days.
Rhode Island’s ban is following a disturbing trend of spreading hysteria through cities, counties, states, and even countries despite a total lack of evidence linking legal vape products to illness. The CDC has not found the cause of incidents and the FDA today said they are pursuing a criminal investigation into “illicit adulterated vaping products” and not pursuing actions associated with personal use of any vaping products.”
Bans of regulated legitimate vape products such as Rhode Island’s puts the public at risk as consumers are pushed back to combustible tobacco use and illicit black market products.
If the sale of flavored vape products haven’t been banned where you live, you’re lucky, but you’re not safe. Act now before it’s too late.
