GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Michigan will become the first state in the country to ban flavored e-cigarettes, according to reports.

In an interview, the Washington Post reports Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said the ban goes into effect immediately.

The ban covers retail and online sales of flavored e-cigarettes that use sweet and fruity flavors as well as menthol. Tobacco-flavored e-cigarettes are not included.

Whitmer said e-cigarette companies are using flavors, such as bubble gum, to get young people hooked on nicotine.

The ban comes after the state health department called youth vaping a public health emergency.
