MHA Statement from the Massachusetts Health & Hospital Association (MHA) on
Governor Baker’s Temporary Ban on Vaping Products

SEPTEMBER 24, 2019

“The Massachusetts Health & Hospital Association (MHA) commends Governor Baker for his call to halt all vaping sales in Massachusetts until we can fully understand the causes of the reported illnesses and deaths associated with vaping. Massachusetts hospitals are committed to doing their part to resolve the issue – not only for our state but for the nation.  

Because of the serious health consequences posed by these products – especially for youth – MHA has advocated for swift passage of HB1902/SB1279, which would permanently ban all flavored tobacco, including e-cigarettes and vaping products.”
