Councillors voted 5-2 yesterday in favour of the ban, which will include menthol products, press reports. South Portland, which has a population of 27,000, could become the fourth Maine community to ban flavoured tobacco, a previous attempt having failed in 2019.

The pressure group is urging the state legislature to enact a state-wide flavour ban by passing bill LD 1550.

US - Maine: There is still an ongoing dispute between proponents and opponents of Legislature bill LD 1550, which was introduced last year, local media reports. The bill would ban the sale and distribution of tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, in any flavour other than tobacco.
