Attorney General Letitia James’ office has ordered three online vaping companies: Cloud X Vapes, HQD Tech USA, and PodVapes to immediately halt the online sale of vaping products to New York consumers.
These companies were found illegally sold vaping products online through their websites to New York consumers, especially to teens usages. And all of them offering flavored nicotine vaping products, including cotton candy, pineapple mist, and green apple, and others, according to a press release on informnny.com. This online selling is a violation of New York state law.
The Attorney General Lititia James said:
“Candy and fruit flavored vaping products exist to reel teens into the dangerous habit of smoking, which is why New York banned them.”
“It is shameful that these companies attempted to skirt the law through sneaky, illegal online sales. We will not hesitate to hold those who put our children at risk accountable for their unlawful actions.”
Based on the data shown by the New York State Department of Health (DOH), the number of teen vaping presents a rapid growth in recent years. And flavored vaping products are one of the primary causes of this increase. Recently, the New York government enacted additional legislation to halt the vaping product’s sales to minors and end the adverse health effects.
The sale of nicotine products was already prohibited to anyone under age 21 in New York, aiming to protect the health and safety of youth. According to contemporary law, flavored nicotine product sales are illegal in New York since May 18. Moreover, it is illegal to sell vaping products online and via mail order to New York consumers since July 1.
