New York state is banning all flavored nicotine products and nicotine base for making e-juice tomorrow. What would happen of somebody in say, California shipped one of these banned products to New York? The law caries a penalty of a class a misdemeanor.
How do state level regulations like this work? Can they legally charge a person if they are not in New York? How would they even begin to gather proof that somebody mailed it? Subpeona a post office in a different state? Does a state even have that authority? Would the post office legally have to comply with the subpoena if it wasn't a crime where they were located?
Or what about an international shipment?
I don't know much about law and am not even a retailer of said products or even live in New York, but this just got me thinking... I can't imagine this law could be enforced expect for physical stores in New York breaking the law?
