We can all thank the idiots like Cuomo, Schumer, and this poor excuse for a governor DeBlasio
De Blasio is the mayor But yeah, sad excuses for adults. The proposed bill is from a local councilman who has moms in his ear.
right, the mayor. still a dumbass
I woke up to this in my news feed this morning.
It now leads to a dead story, and turns out it was a false report and it never got passed.
If there is anything we can do to help, please post it up and share it in all vape forums.
page not found…
ohh i thought ya meant dead as in done and over with not dead link, sry
I mean, I guess it would be both, seeing as the bill itself never got passed. It might be done for now, but I don’t know how the vape community is in new York or advocacy is there. They did have a protest, because if new York approves it, it’s only a matter of time before it rotates elsewhere.
FDA commissioner betrayed us all though.
Here’s what was released though (for the curious)
@DarkJester89 this is the same thing ?
AN ACT to amend the public health law, in relation to prohibiting the sale and distribution of flavored e-liquid for use in e-cigarettesThe People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and Assem-bly, do enact as follows: 1 Section 1.

Really how stupid are they…the insanity of these idiot politicians never ceases to amaze me.
Never underestimate politicians. Especially NY or CA breeds…
Yes, they’re a ‘special’ kind of stupid
I used to think California was the worst, but new York not wanting to be outdone said hold my kale and watch this!
I’m not saying you’re out of line, but the bill appears to be Republican in origin. Am I mistaken?
This looks to be the NY Senate version, as opposed to the City Council version that started this thread.
Let’s not target ALL the vape flavors just about 99.98% of them.
Thanks New York
