- Gov. Gretchen Whitmer says she is the first governor in the country to order a total ban on the sale of flavored e-cigarettes, for all ages.

Her chief medical officer has determined that youthful vaping has become a public health emergency in Michigan.

"One of my biggest, most important jobs of being governor is protecting the kids of Michigan.

Michigan attorney general Dana Nessell praised what she's calling a "bold move" by the governor.

I commend the governor's decision and pledge my department's continued and shared commitment to keeping these products out of the hands of our kids. »
