Today, ACI filed testimony on a Maryland House bill that proposes severe restrictions on the sale of e-cigarettes and vaping products. In our testimony, we find that HB-134, if enacted, would significantly harm consumer welfare and lead to avoidable negative health outcomes. The provisions in this legislation would be particularly harmful to Maryland’s consumers because it would prevent those who use flavored tobacco products to quit smoking from accessing a product that has been proven to help smokers quit — thereby harming the health of these Marylanders.
