Denver City Council considers ban on flavored tobacco products and vape juice.
DENVER, CO - OCTOBER 20: Vaping products on shelves at Myxed Up Creations, a store that sells vaping products and other items, at 5800 East Colfax Avenue on October 20, 2021 in Denver, Colorado. The Denver City Council is considering a ban on all flavored tobacco products, including vape juice. The proposal is part of a years-long battle from groups fighting teen vaping. The ban would prohibit the sale of flavored vape juice in Denver, along with products that are chewed or smoked. Phil Guerin, owner and founder of Myxed Up, says this ban would destroy his business on East Colfax. He's been in operation for 29 years. Guerin and other vape supporters argue that vaping is safer than cigarettes and they actually help people quit smoking. His Denver store employs 12 people. (Photo by Helen H.
