Taking Aim At Flavored Vape Products

Virginia lawmakers are on the brink of pulling flavored vape products off the shelves. Del. Rodney Willett and Sen. Creigh Deeds are pushing identical bills aimed at tackling the influx of illegal vape items, citing concerns over underage vaping. These bills would establish a registry for FDA-approved, non-flavored vape products. Supporters argue it’s a step toward protecting children and ensuring consumers know they’re buying legal products. However, opponents worry about economic repercussions and potential limitations on consumer choice. With the deadline for Gov. Glenn Youngkin’s decision approaching, the fate of flavored vape products in Virginia hangs in the balance.
