The Michigan Court of Claims stopped the state's ban on flavored vapes Tuesday, issuing a preliminary injunction against the ban, which began on Oct. 2.
Right hand says, prohibition, not so much
Left hand says, candy flavored vap, and it's about the business, not the consumer, really?
“Not only has plaintiff A Clean Cigarette lost a significant percentage of its sales and closed several stores due to the ban, the ban will force plaintiff to rebrand itself entirely,” she wrote. “In essence, the emergency rules will destroy plaintiff A Clean Cigarette’s business as it currently exists.”
Even my right hand is like WTF?
Now this is obfuscation my right hand is used to SingMDH and then hanging it in shame
But Stephens said the state was fully aware of the problem nearly a year ago and couldn’t justify the need for the emergency rules.
“Indeed an agency cannot create an emergency by way of its own failure to act,” she wrote. “The court concludes that the record, at least at this juncture, does not substantiate the declaration of an emergency which necessitated dispensing with the … normal rule-making procedures which afford the public meaningful opportunities to be heard.”
This is what my right hand remembers...
She also noted that there was evidence that adults using flavored vapes as a means to quit smoking could revert back to traditional cigarettes.
“There is evidence in the record supporting the notion that many adult users of flavored vaping products will return to more harmful combustible tobacco products,” Stephens wrote.
No. What. That's not prohibition is bad.
BTW, the judge is not part of the GOP machine, she is an historically left hand judge.
