BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — A judge ruled Tuesday that the portion of Gov. Charlie Baker's vaping ban that applies to marijuana vaping products could expire next week—unless the Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission decides to keep it.
WBZ-TV reports that Superior Court Judge Douglas Wilkins ruled that Baker's ban on all vaping products was unfair to patients who vape THC for medical reasons.
Baker announced the ban, which applies to nicotine, THC, and CBD vapes, back in September. The ban comes in response to a nationwide vaping-related lung illness epidemic that has sickened thousands and killed two people in Massachusetts.
