A push for Connecticut to ban the sale of flavored e-cigarettes, which has drawn fierce resistance from the vaping industry and concern from some lawmakers, faces a key vote in the General Assembly this week. For several years, Connecticut lawmakers have sought to ban flavored vaping products as use has skyrocketed among youth. Previous proposals would have banned all flavored tobacco items, including menthol cigarettes, but this year’s bill would just prohibit the sale of flavored vapes. Gov. Ned Lamont supports the proposal and included a ban on flavored vaping products in his budget plan two years ago that failed to pass.
