Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced an emergency executive action to ban the sale of flavored electronic cigarettes in New York State. He said this is to combat the increasing number of youth using vape products, largely driven by e-cigarette companies marketing flavors that are intended to get children addicted to nicotine.

"Unfortunately, the action did not apply to menthol flavored e-cigarettes, which with mint flavored e-cigarettes are favored by a majority of high school students,’ a press release from the American Lung Association said.
