The Michigan flavored vape ban is in full effect. Anyone residing in the state, regardless of age, can no longer buy electronic vape flavors other than tobacco. Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer looks to protect children from these nicotine products at the expense of everyone else, especially those attempting to quit smoking.

He made clear that he is working against the governor to restore sensibility and liberty to this vape ban.

The Bill from Labour’s Hillary Benn requires that Johnson ask for an extension to Article 50. If Parliament does not explicitly approve either a deal or no deal. The bill passed through the House of Commons after an emergency debate held by Speaker John Bercow on Tuesday night. 

Parliament then voted on against triggering a snap election in a further Government defeat.
