New restrictions are in effect on the sale of both flavored vaping and tobacco products.

Starting Monday, flavored tobacco vaping products without a Food and Drug Administration marketing order will be barred across New York.

What You Need To Know

  • Flavored tobacco vape products can't be sold in New York without FDA marketing order

  • Pharmacies are now prohibited from selling tobacco

  • New laws passed in April with state's Fiscal Year 2021 budget

Tobacco flavors are excluded from that restriction. Menthol flavors, however, will be banned.

Today's restrictions also prohibit pharmacies to sell tobacco products.

The new laws passed along with New York's 2021 fiscal year budget in April.

Advocates for these changes, including the governor, say they will promote health. They say this is especially true for young people who have been called vulnerable to flavored vaping marketing.
