Whitmer cited children as her primary concern for the new rule and fears that flavored vapes could pose a risk to minor’s health.

Online reaction to the news seemed to be primarily negative Wednesday morning from the smoking and non-smoking community, alike, with most arguing the move is a gross overreach. There is no timeline on when the sale or marketing of flavored vape products will go into effect or how long such a directive will be in place before being sent to the Michigan congress for action.
