MA Governor Orders 4-Month Ban On All Vaping Products

The ban also applies to licensed dispensary products as well

Facing an explosion of vaping-related illnesses, Governor Charlie Baker said Tuesday he is ordering a four-month ban on the sale of all vaping products in Massachusetts, the latest — and perhaps furthest-reaching — move to address what the governor called a public health emergency.

Baker, in declaring the emergency, said the temporary ban will apply to sales of both tobacco and marijuana electronic cigarettes.

His administration stressed that the ban is a pause to allow the medical community and federal officials time to investigate what’s driving the spike in illnesses, which have been tied to nine deaths and 530 cases nationwide. Massachusetts officials have reported 61 possible cases in the state as of this week, including among teenagers — a jump from 38 just last week.
