Leadership for the city of Missoula, Montana Missoula’s have recommended that the city not enforce its ban against flavored vaping products until May. Enforcement was to begin Monday.
The decision comes after two Missoula vape shops and the Montana Smoke Free Association filed suit against Mayor John Engen, Missoula County health officer Ellen Leahy and the city of Missoula.
The lawsuit claims the city’s ordinance flies in the face of state law because the ban applies to adults as well as juveniles, according to NBC Montana. Engen told the Council he’d like to postpone that until May to see what the legislature might do and to prevent unnecessarily spending taxpayer money on litigation. No one objected.
