Candy and fruit-flavored cigarettes are already banned on a federal level, but currently there is no ban or regulation on the kinds of flavors tobacco companies can infuse into cigars, smokeless tobacco and vape oil. Stefan Didak is founder of the non-profit vaping advocacy group Not Blowing Smoke. “We had tax increase and now they are trying to ban flavors,” said Didak. “If you take the flavors out, there is no incentive to keep vaping, and it would basically condemn people to go back to smoking.”
