    I'd say you'll have to place an order with the vendor and see how it goes. From what I've been reading here. That bcf should be Ok as it's a flavor website that wasn't built for vaping. But I read flavorah was a company made for vaping flavors so they may have issues. Hell honestly I have no idea. It's bs for sure and the start to a long road for a lot of us I'm afraid.

    Maybe...

    According to this article...
    https://beta.washingtonpost.com/hea...9-8c1c-7c8ee785b855_story.html?outputType=amp

    "Whitmer complained that e-cigarette companies are using sweet flavors, such as bubble gum and “fruit loops,” to hook young people on nicotine, with potentially adverse consequences. Besides sweet flavors, the prohibition will also apply to vaping products that use mint and menthol flavors. It does not cover tobacco-flavored e-cigarettes, the governor’s aides said."

    (Can't ban "Big Tobacco" products! (or their re-election campaign donations /lobbying $$) :))

    "The ban, which covers both retail and online sales, will go into effect as soon as the health department issues rules, sometime in the next 30 days. It will last for six months, and can be renewed for another six months, according to the governor’s aides. "

    So...I guess nothing for sure is known. For me at least.

    Michigan: Recreational Mary-wanna sales okay...No Vapeing sweet stuff though! :rolleyes:

    I guess all the teenagers and everyone else will have to go back to getting their nicotine the old fashioned way but it's so much better. :rolleyes:

    So Mi starts the black market for vaping... Brilliant!

    The scare tactics worked.. I know a few that will be upset.

    Oh no! Froot Loops flavor! Let's get rid of this because absolutely ZERO adults would use that flavor. They should be smoking cigarettes or like real grownups do. /sarcasm

    It's a big fuck you to adults who would like a less damaging (flavored) alternative to smoking.

    I'm not understanding how the flavor is any different than when they pushed out fruity dip what grown country guy goes into speedway and says "let me get a can of wild berry skull". money and politics. Or even when camel pushed those fruity Turkish blends.

    Yea I know it, and there isn't much we can really do but it grinds my gears they say they are doing it bc it's enticing kids to vape. But when I moved to ky from Vegas I looked at all the jocks like they were disgusting because they were dipping. Then my friend was like "it's sour apple give it a try" which I did. Had he not neglected to tell me I wasn't supposed to swallow I'd have probably taken it up. But I got sick as a dog which is also why I can't vape apple.

    I think it's absurd what Michigan is doing. However, how are they going to regulate flavorings from a flavoring vendor? Capella, nature flavors, flavorwest, Lorann's (and more) are dual purpose flavorings. They sell flavorings for other applications. I don't know about Flavorah since its touted for vaping. I would be concerned about nicotine at this time.

    To me it is just a political tactic to win votes. Sadly, many folks who vape will go back to smoking.
    I'm also thinking of the impact this will leave on vape shops.

    Wonder when they will realize kids are vaping the Juul for the nic buzz, not flavors.
    They will continue to vape away with tobacco and menthol flavors.

    The big advantage of vaping is that you can vape countless flavors. If all e-liquids are now flavorless, many smokers who just start vaping will just switch back to smoke because cigarette has true tobacco taste and better hit.

    Hey, I thought that too. I don’t really like menthol, but I like tobacco flavors. And to not smoke, I’d vape menthol and tobacco. Don’t know if that makes me a sell out or not, though.

    Well, they've been squawking that vaping will lead kids to smoking. I bet they never thought they'd be the cause of that. Such bullshit.

    see how convenient that worked out for them?
