We closed our Weedsport location at the end of September when the NY Flavor Ban was announced. It was to go into effect on October 4th so rather than rack up another month’s rent, utilities, salaries etc. for only four business days we had to make the tough decision to close.
Around the time the flavor ban was going to start being enforced (by state troopers and local health departments) a temporary restraining order was put on the ban while the courts try to decide whether to grant an injunction on the ban. There is no date for when this hearing will actually happen at this time.
Our Auburn location remains open during this time but it seems as though a lot of vapers have been scared away by all the less-than-truthful media news reports. To be clear, no one died or got mysterious lung disease from using e-cigarettes or e-liquid purchased legally from reputable stores. ALL of those cases were from concentrated THC vapor products purchased illegally on the street. And the flavor ban is not to protect our youth, its to keep the flow of cash coming in from sales of combustible cigarettes.
