New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is once again pushing for a ban on flavored tobacco-based vaping products, saying he hopes a law is passed in the next month.

The New York State Health Department has decided to put off a ban on menthol-flavored nicotine vaping products until a court case challenging an earlier ban on other flavored e-cigarettes is resolved.

A state appeals court on Thursday temporarily blocked New York from enforcing a new prohibition on sales of flavored e-cigarettes after the vaping industry sued to block the ban.
