Flavored Vaping Ban: Michigan Supreme Court Declines to Accelerate Gov. Whitmer’s Appeal

The Michigan Supreme Court says it will not accelerate an appeal from Gov. Gretchen Whitmer to reverse the court’s decision to block her ban on flavored vaping products.

The court says any appeal should follow a traditional course to the court of appeals.

In October, a judge blocked Whitmer’s ban on flavored e-cigarettes and also expressed concern about the impact on adults who might be vaping to avoid regular cigarettes.

Whitmer says the ban was necessary to keep flavored e-cigarettes away from teens.

The decision puts the future of flavored vaping products in Michigan on hold.
