ALBANY – The sale of flavored vaping products is now illegal in New York State.

Effective Monday, if a retailer is caught selling flavored vaping products, they will face a fine of up to $100 for each item they have.







Advocates of the law say it’ll protect children and young adults in New York State, some say it’s going to crush an industry that employs thousands across the state, while handing a win to Big Tobacco.

The sale of all tobacco products in pharmacies is also banned under the new law.







Some other rules will be effective July 1, including a ban of online sales of vaping products, and a ban on coupons for vaping and tobacco products.
