Next year, lawmakers in Colorado will once again try to ban the sale of flavored tobacco and vaping products.

According to The Denver Post, Rep. Kyle Mullica, D-Northglenn, is working on a bill that would ban the sale of flavored cigarettes and vaping products. It’s unclear whether the bill will include all flavored tobacco products or just cigarettes when it gets introduced next year.

Over the last month, Denver City’s Council considered a bill that would have banned most flavored tobacco products except large cigars, pipe and hookah tobacco; it then passed a bill that would have allowed for all flavored tobacco products to continue to be sold in tobacco stores like cigar shops; but that legislation was then vetoed by its mayor.

Flavored tobacco bans have become a hot topic in recent years, though the two most notable flavored tobacco bans to pass—one in California and another in Philadelphia—have not become law due to various challenges.
