Massachusetts Vaping Sales Ban To End Early On December 11

BOSTON (CBS) – The four-month ban on the sale of all vaping products in Massachusetts is ending early, Governor Charlie Baker announced Wednesday. It will now stop Wednesday, December 11th, weeks earlier than expected. “At that time, we expect to put in place new regulations to ensure everyone knows the legitimate health risks that all vaping products pose,” Baker said in a news conference at the State House to discuss the change. The temporary ban, which was approved by the Public Health Council, went into effect September 25 and was orginally scheduled to end January 25, 2020. Before the announcement, Baker signed a law that bans the sale of flavored tobacco and vaping products in Massachusetts that was passed by the Legislature last week.
