Poll: Majority Of New Yorkers Support Ban On Flavored Vaping Products


A new Siena College poll shows that the majority of New Yorkers agree with the Cuomo administration's executive order to ban all flavored e-cigarettes, even after the ban was reversed by an appellate panel last week.

In the poll, over two-thirds of New Yorkers said they never have vaped, but they are concerned with the health risks involved in the practice.

Forty-three percent of the people who vape in the five boroughs said that they believe vaping is healthier than smoking and forty percent said vaping has helped them quit cigarettes altogether.

Of those polled, several individuals said they took up vaping for a more discreet way to intake THC.

According to an article published in the New York Post, the Siena poll also asked if people were for or against legalizing the recreational use of marijuana; 56% said they were for it while 36% said were against it.
