Ron DeSantis vetoed measure that would have banned sale of nearly all flavored electronic-cigarette products and raised States smoking age from 18 to 21. Attorney General Ashley Moody, Senate President Bill Galvano and health organizations such as American Cancer Society and American Association pushed legislation, which largely would have brought Florida into compliance with federal laws aimed at curbing teen Vaping. Proposal Was One Of Last Measures Approved By Lawmakers During 2020 Legislative Session That Ended In March, Following Tug-of-war Over Measure Between House And Senate Leaders. In late Tuesday veto message, DeSantis called raising age to 21 to purchase tobacco products in Florida superfluous, since it is already mandate in federal law. Desantis notes that hundreds of thousands of Floridians rely on Tobacco-Free Vaping flavors as reduce-risk alternative to cigarettes, which are more dangerous, message echoed by thousands of proprietors of e-cigarette shops who urge DeSantis to veto Bill. This legislation would almost assuredly lead more people to resume smoking cigarettes, and it would drive others to hazardous black market, DeSantis wrote in veto letter released by his office at about 9 pm Tuesday. Latter Consequence Is Especially Significant Because Much-publicized Cases Of Lung Injury Associated With Vaping In Recent Years Have Been Traced To Illegal, Or Black Market, VAPE Cartridges Containing THC, Not To Types Of Legal Vaping Products That This Bill Would Abolish. Moody, who made legislation known Tobacco 21 one of her chief legislative priorities this year, called Governors Action disappointing. United States And Florida Surgeons General Have Declared Vaping To Be Epidemic. As Attorney General and mother, I will continue to advocate for legislation and in our courts to protect Florida children, she said in prepared statement.

In news release, Florida Smoke Free Association President Robert Lovett, whose organization represents more than 1 000 small VAPE shops, praised governor for his commitment to defending personal freedoms, small businesses and limiting government overreach. George Conley, President of American Vaping Association, said Bill would have had devastating effect on States economy. When legislators VOTE for this Bill, few had any idea that were actually voting to shut down small businesses in their districts. This would have been disastrous not only for 5 000-plus vapor-relate jobs in Florida, but for 800 000-plus adult vapers in Florida as well, Conley said in prepared statement. Republican Governors Election-year Veto Was Announced Just Hours After He Appeared With President Donald Trump In Jupiter, Where Presidential Motorcade Passed Number Of People Carrying Signs Declaring, I VAPE, I VOTE. Desantis is close ally of Trump, whose re-election bid could hinge in part on Florida and its 29 electoral votes.
