NY Assemblywoman Linda Rosenthal (left) has introduced a bill to ban e-cigarette flavors
In the New York Daily News, AVA President Gregory Conley is quoted opposing a new bill by Assemblywoman Linda Rosenthal (D-Manhattan). The bill seeks to ban all characterizing flavors other than menthol and tobacco in nicotine-containing vapor products.
Gregory Conley, president of the American Vaping Association, slammed Rosenthal’s bill, arguing that flavored vapor products help adults “disconnect themselves” from the taste of tobacco.
