Hoosier Vapers

A Marion County judge Thursday rejected a request Thursday to halt Indiana’s new e-liquid regulations that are set to take effect next month. 

The trade group Hoosier Vapers filed a lawsuit last year challenging new rules that dictate how liquids for e-cigarettes can be manufactured in Indiana.

Hoosier Vapers says the law is unconstitutional and the state is overstepping its regulatory authority.

As part of its lawsuit, the group asked for a preliminary injunction that would stop the regulations from going into effect July 1. The judge ruled against them.
