According to David Eggert, Michigan government/politics correspondent for the Associated Press, the judge said there is evidence that if flavored vaping products are banned in Michigan, adults will return to using more harmful combustible tobacco products.

The decision temporarily stops the state from enforcing emergency rules banning the sale of the products.

Gov. Whitmer responded to the injunction and promised to seek an immediate stay and request a final ruling from the Michigan Supreme Court, The Detroit News reported.
