Policy Michigan Senate Approves 18% Tax on Vaping Products


The Senate of Michigan has recently approved a six-bill package that would impose an 18% tax on nicotine-containing e-liquids and allows the sales of flavoured vaping products.

In September 2019, Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer had issued an executive order banning the sale of flavoured e-liquids across the State of Michigan. As governor, my number one priority is keeping our kids safe,said Gov. Whitmer in a statement at the time. However, the proposed ban had been blocked by a state judge, who ruled that the emergency provision short-circuited normal law making procedures.

In response to the block, Gov. Whitmer had taken the matter to the Supreme Court. However the latter had denied Gov. Gretchen Whitmers request to remove the lower courts block on the ban and also denied her request that the high court consider the case before the Court of Appeals, saying that they were not persuaded that the question should be reviewed by this court before consideration by the Court of Appeals.

New bill allows flavours

Finally, this new bill would set up an enforcement and licensing system for shops that sell vaping products, but thankfully allows flavours. Additionally, it would change the age limit for purchasing tobacco and vaping products across the state, from 18 years old to 21, and impose a tax rate of 18% on vape products.

Its regulated. Its enforced,said Senate Minority Leader Jim Ananich, D-Flint, about the measure. Ananich, who was one of the sponsors of the bill, said it would give adults the choice one way or anotherto use the products, and that it aimed to resolve a lack of clarity surrounding federal and state policy on vaping in Michigan.

Vapesourcing Opinion:

Flavor e-liquids is allowed to sell, which is good news. It is necessary to strengthen the supervision of young people,but the CoolFactor Not Flavours is What Drives Most Teens to Vape.
