The Costs and Unintended Consequences of Tobacco and Vaping Flavor Bans

  • August 27, 2020
    1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

In recent years, states across the county have implemented and considered various bans on flavored vaping products and e-cigarettes. Some, like Hawaii and California, are currently debating such laws. Others, like Vermont and South Dakota, could not get legislation across the finish line last year but are likely to try again.

These prohibitions are intended to protect young people from tobacco and nicotine. But is prohibition the answer and what do we know about the unintended consequences experienced in places that have already implemented vaping and flavor bans?

Join this expert panel discussion examining why bans on e-cigarettes and flavored vaping products may not work as intended, how they can actually be damaging to public health, and why many are increasingly concerned they’ll contribute to over-criminalization and the over-policing of minority communities in your city and state.
