Washington's ban on flavored vaping products starts today being Thursday

The Washington State Board of Health approved an emergency ban on the sale of flavored vaping products.

The emergency ban takes effect on Thursday, October 10, 2019 and lasts for 120 days.

Inslee issued an executive order in September asking for an emergency ban on flavored vaping products, including flavored THC vapor products.


The order also asked the state's Liquor and Cannabis Board to ban any ingredients that are found to be the cause of reported lung illnesses related to vaping in the state and across the country. 

Inslee shared the following statement after Wednesday's emergency ban, "I am pleased the State Board of Health agrees we cannot wait to act on this very important public health issue. It comes down to protecting the health of Washingtonians, especially young people. These emergency rules will help protect public health and save lives."
