SAANYS Provides Testimony at Albany County Legislature on Vaping Ban

On October 15, 2019, SAANYS provided comments in support of a proposed county wide ban on e-cigarettes. The proposed ban, Local Law E, would ban flavored tobacco products, including menthol cigarettes, flavored cigars, smokeless tobacco, electronic cigarettes, and vaping devices. SAANYS’ position of support for such bans rests on the increasing negative impact on students. More information on these negative impacts can be found in our recent special publication titled “Student Vaping” and can be found at:
