New York City Wants Wholesalers to End Vape Sales

New York City's mayor seeks a Manhattan judge's immediate intervention to stop 11 wholesalers from selling illegal flavored vapes. The city's lawsuit, filed in April, highlights the concerning rise in youth addiction to flavored e-cigarettes. City lawyers are now pushing for a preliminary injunction to cease these harmful practices swiftly. Mayor Adams emphasizes the urgency of preventing vape distribution to children. Investigators were able to place orders directly with the wholesalers, uncovering incriminating sales invoices. The legal action aims to hold these distributors accountable and protect the youth during litigation.
