Legislature to hold hearing on flavored tobacco ban bill

March 25, 2019

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — Maine legislators will hold a public hearing on a bill that would ban all flavored tobacco products statewide.

The bill is being considered by the Health and Human Services Committee, and is sponsored by Democratic state Sen. Rebecca Millet of Cumberland. WGME-TV reports the Monday hearing would consider the impact of a bill restricting the sale and distribution of all flavored tobacco products, including flavored cigars.

The proposal comes as the Federal Drug Administration is cracking down on e-cigarette manufacturers, announcing earlier this month that it would soon restrict the sale of flavored tobacco products to minors.
