LANSING, MI – Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer is being praised for her bold move by declaring a public health emergency and putting in place emergency rules that ban flavors in nicotine vaping products to better protect the state’s children from addiction.
“With a more than 1.5 million increase in the number of students using vaping products in just one year, the governor’s emergency actions today are exactly the bold measures we must take to protect Michigan’s children from the dangerous effects of vaping Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel said this morning.
Nessel went on to say “I commend the governor’s decision and pledge my department’s continued and shared commitment to keeping these products out of the hands of our kids.”
Michigan becomes the first state in the nation to ban flavored vape products in a move aimed at protecting youth. The ban comes after the MDHHS found that youth vaping constitutes a public health emergency for the state.
