Mike Bloomberg’s Statement on New York’s Major Step Forward in Combatting Youth E-Cigarette Use by Ending Sale of Flavored E-Cigarettes

“As we battle the coronavirus, we know that people with underlying health issues who smoke tobacco or use e-cigarettes may have an increased risk for serious complications. That makes the importance of prohibiting the sale of all flavored e-cigarettes even more urgent, and today we took a major step forward. New York has become the largest state to enact a ban, and I applaud Governor Cuomo and other state leaders for standing up to the tobacco industry and protecting millions of children and families. The youth e-cigarette epidemic is still with us, and getting these dangerous products off the market is even more essential than ever.”
