Entercom Says No To E-Cig Ads As JUUL CEO Quits


BOCA RATON, FLA. — The use of electronic cigarettes, known as vaping, has generated much controversy of late.

Reports of lung illness linked to vaping products have filled newscasts in recent weeks, with six deaths linked to the products.

The products have come in such flavors as “Dinner Lady Lemon Sherbet,” “Vapetasia Killer Kustard” and “Aqua Sweet Cereal Milk.”

Now, the sale of such products is already off-limits in New York and Michigan. On Tuesday, Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker declared a public health emergency and ordered a four-month prohibition on the sale of all vaping products.

Entercom Communications has reacted. It’s no longer accepting any ads from e-cigarette companies — a revelation that came via an internal memo distributed just as the CEO of one the biggest e-cig makers said he is stepping down.
