Maine May Consider Ban on Vaping Products
During the Moose Morning Show today, you heard us talking about Massachusetts and their temporary (4 month) ban on vaping products. This falls in the wake of several, fairly unexplained, health issues seemingly arising from the act of vaping. The bill will be proposed by Cape Elizabeth Senator Rebecca Millett (D). She says that the FDA must determine whether vaping, and it's products, are safe to use.
Millett says there isn't enough research on the products to determine how dangerous they are. She's making the proposal after more than 500 people have been sickened in the country with illnesses stemming from vaping.
Massachusetts Republican Gov. Charlie Baker has declared a public health emergency in his state and announced a four-month moratorium on vaping sales. Other states have also taken steps to curb or restrict vaping.
