The 8th U.S. Circuit Court Upheld a ban on flavored e-cigarettes in Minnesota


March 2, 2014 — Federal law does not prohibit the sale of flavored e-cigarette products, menthol cigarettes and other flavored tobacco products in Edina, Minnesota, according to Bloomberg News today. The Eighth Circuit Court ruled Monday in a case brought by RJ Reynolds Tobacco and related companies.

That same day, the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear a tobacco company’s challenge to a similar law in Los Angeles, and an appeals court upheld a lower court ruling that upheld the ban.

A unanimous panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit joined other federal appeals courts in finding that local bans on tobacco products are constitutional.
