DETROIT – ClickOnDetroit Morning Briefing -- Sept. 4, 2019

Michigan bans flavored e-cigarettes

Michigan has become the first state in the country to ban flavored e-cigarettes on Wednesday, according to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's office.

"My chief medical officer this week said we have a public health crisis, it's time to take action. So I'm using my executive authority as governor to order the Department of Health and Human Services to ban the flavored e-cigarettes, to restrict advertising and the misleading advertising that they're engaged in, that it's 'healthy' or that it's 'good for you,'" Whitmer said Wednesday morning on MSNBC.

We will slowly feel that change in the air this morning as both temps and humidity will be heading in the cooler and dryer direction. Most of Metro Detroit is waking up to temps in the 60s and that's where they will stay most of the day today.

Here's the detailed forecast for the rest of this week.
