Health Department Accepts Testimony On Flavored Vaping Product Ban

Dozens testified on Tuesday at a Rhode Island Department of Health meeting to talk about vaping as the state considers a permanent ban on flavored vape products. Rhode Island is currently in the middle of a temporary ban enacted by Governor Raimondo last year. There were plenty of different perspectives aired Tuesday, including from those who said vaping helped them kick cigarettes, adults who argued they should have the right to enjoy flavored vapes, and on the other side, those who worried about young people getting hooked on a new bad habit and medical professionals who warned about adverse health effects. The Department of Health is accepting written testimony about the proposed ban through the end of this month.
