Governor Cuomo Wants To Ban Menthol E-Cigarettes


(Albany, NY) -- Governor Cuomo wants to include menthol in the ban on the sale of flavored electronic cigarettes and nicotine e-liquids.

The governor says he made the decision after looking at the recommendations made by State Health Commissioner Doctor Howard Zucker. Cuomo is now calling on the Public Health and Health Planning Council to hold an emergency meeting to add menthol to the current ban. The governor says New York can't sit back and wait for the federal government to take action.
