LANSING – Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel praised the bold move made today by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer by declaring a public health emergency and putting in place emergency rules that ban flavors in nicotine vaping products to better protect the state's children from addiction, saying:

"With a more than 1.5 million increase in the number of students using vaping products in just one year, the governor's emergency actions today are exactly the bold measures we must take to protect Michigan's children from the dangerous effects of vaping.

"I commend the governor's decision and pledge my department's continued and shared commitment to keeping these products out of the hands of our kids."
