Voices of Vapers – The Fight for Vaping in the Empire State (Guest: Andrew Osborne)
The state of New York is undergoing efforts to ban certain vaping flavors from sale. Andrew Osborn, vice president of the New York State Vapor Association, discusses his efforts to oppose this legislation.
In this episode of Voices of Vapers, Andrew Osborne, vice president of the New York State Vapor Association (NYSVA) joins Lindsey to discuss a proposed flavor ban in the state of New York. NYSVA is an advocacy organization that supports more than 700 New York vaping businesses and more than 2,700 employees. The board has been advising researcher, legislators, government agencies, and industry stakeholders for eight years on local, state, federal and international issues. Andrew is the president and co-founder of Vapor Trail Electronic Inc., one of the first vapor retail stores in New York State.
Lindsey and Andrew talk about his history in the vaping industry, why New York’s proposed flavor ban is different than the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s recent decision to restrict access to flavored e-cigarettes in convenience stores, and NYSVA’s efforts in the Empire State.
