Attorneys General Continue Enforcement Against Vaping Companies

  • Massachusetts AG Maura Healey sued disposable e-cigarette manufacturer Puff Bar and its distributor Cool Clouds Distribution, Inc. for allegedly illegally selling flavored tobacco products to Massachusetts consumers and failing to protect against delivery of these products to minors in violation of An Act Modernizing Tobacco Regulations, the Massachusetts Consumer Protection Act, and the AG’s e-cigarette regulations. The complaint seeks injunctive relief, restitution, civil penalties, and attorneys’ fees and costs.
  • New York AG Letitia James separately sent letters to online e-cigarette retailers Cloud X Vapes, HQD Tech USA, and PodVapes ordering them to cease and desist illegally selling vaping products to New York consumers, including selling flavored vaping products to minors. Under recently enacted New York laws, it is illegal to sell flavored nicotine products as well as to sell vaping products online and through mail order to New York consumers.
