The city of Watkinsville last Wednesday banned the sale of most flavored vaping products, as well as the sale of all vaping items to anyone under the age of 18.

Gas stations and other convenient stores will be allowed to sell mint and menthol flavors of e-cigarettes, as those flavors are not necessarily targeted toward children and may help adults quit smoking tobacco cigarettes, stated members of the Watkinsville City Council.
