Washington Governor Directs State Officials To Impose Emergency Ban On Flavored Vapes

The health board meets Oct 9th and any ban would take effect the 10th

Gov. Jay Inslee directed state officials Friday to impose an emergency ban on flavored vaping products, one of several measures he announced in response to the mysterious, sometimes fatal lung illness linked to e-cigarettes that has rippled across the nation.

In an executive order, Inslee —noting the government’s responsibility for public health and vaping product flavors’ particular appeal to children — directed the state Board of Health to use its emergency authority to ban all flavored vaping products, including those containing THC.

The health board meets Oct. 9. The ban, which would take effect a day after any board action, would last 120 days and could be renewed.
