Appeals court blocks state’s new ban on flavored vaping products

Posted: Updated:

An appeals court is blocking the state's new ban on flavored vaping products.

It’s just a temporary ban until the court makes a ruling on the vaping industry's lawsuit to block the ban permanently.
           
Supporters of the ban say kids are getting addicted to e-cigarettes, which have been linked to illnesses and deaths across the country.
           
Critics say it was a hasty reaction to the incidents and government overreach.
           
The court order halting the ban is in effect until at least Oct. 18, when both sides are due back in court.
