Gov. Cuomo announces ban on flavored e-cigarettes in New York


>>NAMES LIKE BUBBLEGUM, COTTON CANDY. THESE ARE OBVIOUSLY TARGETED TO YOUNG PEOPLE. WE WOULD BAN ALL FLAVORS, BESIDES TOBACCO AND MENTHOL.>>Bill: DECLARING A PUBLIC HEALTH EMERGENCY, MOVING TO BAN THE SALE OF FLAVORED E-CIGARETTES. WE HAVE BEEN ON THE STORY FOR WEEKS. BACK WITH US NOW. GOOD MORNING TO YOU.>>THE NEWS HERE IS THAT THE GOVERNOR, WHO A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO, JUST SIGNED INTO LAW BANNING ALL TOBACCO AND E-CIGARETTES UNDER THE AGE OF 21, HE RAISED IT FROM 18 TO 21. BOTH TOBACCO AND E-CIGARETTES. ALL OF THE STATISTICS ABOUT HOW TEENS ARE VAPING UNDER THE AGE OF 21, 18. HE SAYS THIS IS RIDICULOUS. HE SAW THE NUMBERS ARE UP. ALMOST ONE-THIRD OF ALL HIGH SCHOOLERS. IN THE STATE OF NEW YORK HERE, FROM 2014 TO 2010, THE NUMBER OF HIGH SCHOOLERS VAPING E-CIGARETTES HAS DOUBLED. SO THEY SAY NO MORE FLAVORS. I AM ALL FLAVORS EXCEPT MENTHOL AND TOBACCO FLAVORS PURE NOW IMMEDIATELY THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY HAS COME OUT AND SAID YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN MENTHOL SO ALSO BECAUSE MENTHOL IS HEAVILY USED BY TEENS, AND MENTHOL CIGARETTES –>>Bill: WHY DIDN’T THEY?>>THEY MAKE GO ON TO DO IT. I THINK THE GOVERNOR’S THINKING, AND I CAN PUT WORDS IN HIS MOUTH, NOT SOMEONE WHO IS ON MENTHOL CIGARETTES CODES” CIGARETTES BY THEN GOING OVER TO MENTHOL E-CIGARETTES. I AM VERY HOT ON USING E-CIGARETTES FOR QUITTING. I JUST DON’T WANT TEENS TO USE THEM.>>Sandra: WE REACHED OUT TO THE LARGEST MAKER, JUUL, AND THEY SAID “WE AGREE IS, AND THAT IS WHY WE HAVE STOPPED SELLING OUR NONTOBACCO PODS. WE WILL CONTINUE TO COMBAT YOUTH USAGE. “EVEN THE CEO OF THE COMPANY SAID I AM NOT FOR ANYBODY JUST PICKING UP AND STARTING THIS HABIT. HE’S NOT EVEN ENDORSING HIS OWN PRODUCT. SWITCHING TOBACCO TO THIS PRODUCT. THAT IS STILL A GOOD CASE.>>Sandra: SANDRA, THAT WAS BEAUTIFULLY PRESENTED TO, BUT I THINK IT IS A LITTLE BIT DISINGENUOUS. THIS CARTRIDGE LIKE PRODUCT THAT KIDS LOVE. IT IS NOT EVEN THE FLAVORS. WHEN YOU SERVE THE KIDS WITH THE LATEST NATIONAL FIGURES, THAT THEY SAY KIDS ARE VERY THIN BECAUSE OF THE FLAVORS, THEY DON’T EVEN KNOW THAT THERE IS NICOTINE IN THESE PRODUCTS. BUT THEY ALSO VAPED BECAUSE OF THE HIGH TECH CARTRIDGE THAT THEY GET HERE THEY KNOW THAT VERY WELL. THEY ARE NOT MAKING COTTON CANDY AND MENTHOL AND AMEND TO GO TO ADULTS. NOW, ONE THING THAT I AM MIGHT AGREE WITH YOU ON, I THINK THAT

  • Sounds like their just trying to keep cigarettes on the market. Thy, the government probably put the chemicals in the product

  • What about all the mom and pop stores that sell e liquid? I guess just put them outta business no problem. We all know how well prohibition works.

  • WHATS WRONG WITH YOUR JOURNALISTS ????????? E-CIG are now more harmful than ever, they make e-cig that can heat up to 600°F with amps way higher than a simple e-cig. Those monster e-cig should be banned, it give a very bad reputation for those who choose a normal one. Those monster e-cig are specifically made for teenager and childish adults, it make a load of vapor and kids love-it.

  • We need to vote this idiot governor out he was bought out by big tobacco because every pack of cigs is taxed 4 bucks from ny state and so many people have stopped that’s what this is about

  • Oh please. What a joke. Force vaccinate you with pharma poisonous vaxxines and not allow you to choose to smoke something? Ridiculous. Thought this country was land of the free, but it's land of the bought.

  • So… this is why New York sucks… smart ppl dont want to live in sucky places… smart ppl dont vote democratic. Goal? Make place as sucky as possible so only stupid ppl are left… get dem votes from idiots… steal idiots' money… win

  • How many born alive babies is New York killing daily, and Vaping is an emergency due to teens vaping? This guy is stupid!

  • What a fking moron. These flavors exist because the adults who made vaping this big are the ones who wanted more flavors to get them away from tobacco, NOT REMIND THEM OF IT!!

  • There is still nicotine and that's what to dictive. How did they say that somebody smoking regular cigarettes to going to e-cigarettes is going to help them quit? That's ridiculous the addiction factor is still there

  • You smoke ecigs where you shouldn't. Irresponsible, but a test, just the same. Then you come in with a flavored ecig w/crack Fentanyl, to mask the drug smell with the flavor (smell).

    You are fuchkining everyone, with your schidt!

  • Ha, ha! I know a 14yo in Colorado who VAPES like the proverbial Train in Public… She mocks the LAW, and LAW ENFORCERS, because she knows No One has the stones to ENFORCE the LAW. Her Peeps do the Very Same, of course. Oh, btw, she has declared she does Not want Children. Why? Because, she says, "Why would I want an Unruly, Rebellious, Uncontrollable kid (like Her) Ruining My Young Adult Life?" Pretty Smart Thinking…

  • Democrat America . The country who will take away any and all of your rights and liberties or freedom . Who the hell asked him to tell us what to do about everything every time he turns around !? If people choose to do harmful things to their bodies ; that's none of his business ! You can't save people against their will .

  • So now that they are illegal the price will skyrocket.
    Telling people what is " best for them " never works.
    I'm sticking with Camels.

  • Oh yeah, Cause adults don't vape all these flavors now available. They prefer the nasty taste of tobacco right. Have these idiots ever stepped into a vape shop and watch who's buying these. Around here anyone under 18 isn't even allowed in most vape shops without a parent. These kids are vaping because their not suppose to and doing it they think makes them cool. So now people will buy unflavored juice and add their on flavors to it.

  • Their not making bookoo money from taxing the crap out of it. Most vapers i know use no tobacco in their vape juice. Four ingredients counting the nicotine. And the nic.. its extracted from vegetables. Flavor extracts, vegetable glycerin and propylene glycol.. thats it…four ingredients… nothing from the tobacco plant. If they tax the ingredients to hell and back they have to tax the candy industry just as hard… that's why why there's a push for only tobacco related vaping. Money straight and simple.

  • Yes they must ban flavored E-Cigs they’ve lost too much money in taxes from people that stopped smoking real cigarettes they must force people back to real cigarettes so we can get our taxes again politicians are all about the money. I mix my own flavors and I will continue to order my own flavors. So sorry you lost all the money in taxes. Every adult I know that uses e-cigarette uses a different flavor tobacco and menthol are the least popular flavor there is for adults. All about power we have the power to knock you down we are your rulers. I smoked e-cigs for three years now I totally quit no cigarettes no vape.

  • Lol, Coumo banned flavored e-cigarettes but doesn't ban flavored tobacco, why? They are equally bad for children and adults.

  • Jesus, I mean Cuomo take the WHEEEEEL ! What a Pathetic excuse for a human, what idiots put this man into office, otta have their heads examined ! y'all sucked down too much Vape !

  • ITS BECAUSE EVERYONE IS VAPING AND NOT SMOKING CIGARETTES ANYMORE AND THE CIGARETTE COMPANIES ARE LOSING SO MUCH MONEY!! THIS IS B.S. I WOULD OF NEVER STOPPED SMOKING IF IT WASN'T FOR VAPING!!
    PLUS WHEN VAPING YOU DONT GET ALL THE DIRTY LOOKS FROM PEOPLE WHO NEED TO MIND THEIR OWN BUSINESS AND STOP JUDGING!!!!!

  • Maybe one day people will learn banning things only create black markets and make criminals out of people who are in truth doing nothing wrong

  • Because he can and will, not because it's bad! Same dings with guns! IT'S HIS WAY OR LEAVE THE LIBERAL 👹DEMONRATS RUN STATE! DEMONRAT POLITICAL BOSS NYS GOVERNOR DON COUMOBRATCIA👹 OF NEW COUMOYORKO STATE, BUT NOT EVERYTHING ,BECAUSE HE AND SOME OF HIS FRIENDS MIGHT HAVE STOCK IN IT! Don't assume Demacrats are for the little people, only when it's Unions Contracts! It's a Mob thing! Something his Daddy taught him in the Albany Mansion!

  • Im commenting this story because Fox is disabling comments on videos they know aren't truthful or stories people may question. They don't want to be fact checked so they'd rather take away our speech. What a great thing the freedom fighters at Fox have done!

  • I suffer from Asthma I have friends that smoke both. I can be in a room with smokers who smoke cigarettes but I can’t stay in the room with those that smoke e-cigarettes it always sets my Asthma off there is something in the vape they give off that triggers it and I’m an older person. So what is it doing to the ones that use them it will be a bigger problem than tobacco itself they have not been tested enough.

  • no one in history ever started vaping cotton candy then transferred to smoking cigarettes,seems like the lunatics are running the asylum.its very clear none of these old men vape,and why cant adults like cotton candy??lets all hear it for the land of the free!

  • True…children should not be smoking…but why the hell are we not going after the distributors allowing the kids to get ahold of them? Put large fines on any business that sells anyone under the legal age, and if parents are found to be supplying it, they should get a fine as well. There are people benefiting from the use of E-cigarettes, me included and this only hurts people like me and other quitting smoking or using it for medicinal CBD.

  • So what are they saying? How is this enforceable? Just buy the flavor separate and mix your own. It's less safe, but they really can't stop it. Little bottles of artificial flavoring are not and cannot be made illegal

  • What about the flash drive look like vapor. That's the problem. The reason is that is a vapor in disguise as flash drive,under age kids getting their hands of the flash drive look like vapor easly, it attract the underage kids, they can sneak into the schools and vapor it, the vape shop business illegally sell it to minors, don't care about the age product laws. It needs too stop producing and banned flash drive look like vapor. How come nobody talk about it?

  • Im against banning it doesnt work and we are free to decide what is best for ourselves. I hate vaping but im not for the government banning and violating our personal lives.

  • Ban vape juice ban cigarettes ban cars ban everything BAN driving ban living ban breathing ban your rights ban the fact you can't get money ban everything but the only thing that will be legal GIVEING MONEY TO THE GOVERNMENT

  • Same logic to banning vaping and banning guns.
    Over 10 million adults vape and 3.2 million young people vape.
    American's owning guns is over 160 million.
    Deaths and illnesses from vaping top 400.
    Mass shootings with injuries and deaths top 340.
    So they want to ban vaping and guns to tens of millions or hundreds of millions of Americans because of a few hundred people.

  • Our government is "suppose to protect our unalienable rights of life, liberty & the pursuit of happiness. These fundamental human right are the right to live ones life as we so choose regardless of the consequences to ones self, good or bad. Cigarettes have a warning which is a common sense approach. Inform we the public instead of enslaving us.

  • Who the fu*k is this guy to tell me which flavors I can and cannot vape? You going to ban wine because it tastes like grapes?

  • Bunch of bullcrap…. most people going from smoking tobacco to vaping don´t have a desire to quit…they do it to go from one bad/harmful habit to a much less harmful one. Vaping is for now the least harmful & best delivery system for nicotine. Tell your Cardiologist that you´ve switched from cigarettes to vaping… & he´ll say: Congrats ! That said…not advising anyone to start using any kind of nicotine product…but, if you insist or if you already are using…. then Vaping is a much better choice.

    Regarding E-juice flavors… silly stupid liberal politicians wanting to ban flavors…for what?

    Show me the proof that vaping is a gateway to smoking cigarettes…Thing is, once you´ve experienced good quality flavored e-juice….you don´t want to have anything to do with ordinary cigarettes…however, banning or restricting e-juice/flavors &wil only generate in an unregulated underground market/smuggling…it will have no positive effect at all.

  • Millions more die on just regular cigarettes but since the government loves the tax money they let the killers get away. Same will happen with drugs they'll all be legalized at some point to the destruction of our society

  • This is sooooo stupid. YOu don't need to ban anything. You just need to look at the parents that don't enforce their kids teach them it's wrong. I can't stand this bullcrap.

  • Idiots. The vap juice that caused the fatalities where home manufactured. I'm surprised there isn't a tobacco ad with this post. Would be if it was legal to do so.

  • Ok Chris Cuomo lost my vote everybody CALL CHRIS CUOMO OFFICE TELL HIM YOU CANCEL THIS VAPPING BS OR YOU LOOSE MY VOTE HIS SEAT IS COMING UP PRETTY QUICK. THIS WILL SHUT HIM UP

  • My husband quit smoking real cigarettes because of flavored vaping.
    He happens to enjoy the diff flavors that are provided. (He is also a 33 year old man)

    Honestly, this is nonsense.

    Who would allow kids to vape anyway!? Seems like this should be a parenting issue and not a product issue.
    AND many of the boxes say WARNING: nicotine is a highly addictive chemical.
    Don't give your kids nicotine parents!!
