Bill calling for ban on vaping pencils would first be the nation’s if passed away

Legislation calling for a ban on all tobacco that is flavored statewide, including increasingly popular JUUL vape pods, is the to begin its type into the nation if passed away.

“Make no error about it, Big Tobacco is currently Big Vape,” stated state Rep. Danielle Gregoire (D-Marlboro) who's co-sponsoring the bill with state Sen. John Keenan (D-Quincy).

The stifling hot State home hearing room could maybe not retain the a huge selection of those who arrived on the scene for and against the proposed law Tuesday, including a few teenagers.

Highschool and students from over the state held a press seminar ahead of the hearing got underway, sharing tales of college restrooms cloaked in vape smoke and their very own battles with smoking addiction. Considering that the vaping pods would be the measurements of a USB stick, they’re simple to conceal in arms and sleeves, and pupils said they’ve seen friends vape during course.
