V***r Technology Association

NEW YORK STATE TEMPORARILY BARRED FROM ENFORCING FLAVOR BAN! This afternoon, the New York State Appellate Division granted a temporary restraining order in the lawsuit brought by the V***r Technology Association, Benevolent ELiquids Inc., and Perfection V**es regarding the proposed flavor ban in New York State, which was set to be enforced tomorrow, October 4, 2019.

The Order entered by four appellate judges ruled that the State is “temporarily enjoined and prevented from enforcing” the flavor ban until a ruling on the motion for a preliminary injunction is determined. That motion is scheduled to be heard on October 18, 2019.

Tony Abboud, Executive Director of the V***r Technology Association said, “We are very pleased with the New York State Appellate Division’s decision, which acknowledges the strength of our claims about the State’s executive overreach, and which preserves the ability of hundreds of small businesses to remain open and continue to serve their adult customers. The New York State Legislature, instead of enacting a flavor ban, already has decided to address concerns about youth va**ng by raising the minimum age for v***r products from 18 to 21 and imposing a major tax increase. We continue to stand ready to work with the State of New York and all interested stakeholders on the many real solutions that should be implemented to achieve the twin goals of restricting youth va**ng, which already is illegal, and preserving flavored alternatives for adults desperately trying to quit smoking.”

I know everyone is concerned about the article that was posted by ABC3340.
The understanding we have of the situation currently is that A PUBLIC HEALTH WARNING WILL BE MADE NOT A BAN. Things change very rapidly in Montgomery so we are staying on top of the situation. I will post updates as I get them. We also have some other sources we are working with to ensure that a ban does not happen.
I would love to tell you with 100% confidence that we are fine and I truly believe we are but I will not slow down on this issue until I can give you 100% solid reassurance.
