Trump admin to ban flavored e-cigs

The Trump administration announced today that it may ban the sale of most flavored e-cigarettes in an attempt to curb teen vaping, The New York Times reports. In a press release, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) shared that the FDA plans to finalize a policy to remove most non-tobacco-flavored e-cigs from the market. The FDA is expected to share specifics on the plan in the coming weeks.

The decision comes amid outcry over the increase in teen vaping. According to preliminary findings from the National Youth Tobacco Survey, more than a quarter of high school students were current e-cig users in 2019, and the majority of youth e-cig users prefer fruit and mint flavored products. "The Trump Administration is making it clear that we intend to clear the market of flavored e-cigarettes to reverse the deeply concerning epidemic of youth e-cigarette use that is impacting children, families, schools and communities," said HHS Secretary Alex Azar.

E-cigarettes have not had a good month. Last week, the CDC cautioned against using any vape products until it can figure out what's making people sick. More than 450 people have reportedly come down with a mysterious vaping-linked lung illness, and three people have died. Michigan recently became the first state to ban flavored e-cigs, and the FDA recently criticized Juul for telling students that its devices are "totally safe."

While teen vaping may be a problem, it's unclear if banning flavored products will keep kids from smoking e-cigs. It could also upset the many adults who prefer flavored products. The FDA's plan is not yet finalized, but it could allow some flavored products to remain on the market if they obtain pre-market compliance approval, which could be a lengthy and expensive process.

Stupid .

That's what happens when the right palms don't get greased. 

I dont agree with this.

 

Ban the advertising? Fine.

 

 

I dont agree with this. We're supposed to be the land of the free. 

If they're sincere they'll also ban menthol cigarretes, or kkk lung poison as they should be called.

Dumb.

This is a danger and deserves attention. Guns, just ignore that as much as you can.

This will get overruled.  If not then he just lost the robot blowjob vote...

Flavored cigarettes were banned back in September of 2009. This included cloves, but not menthol.

How do they work?

I guess if you pay for your own helthcare you can smoke whatever you want.

These e-cig companies have been targeting kids since day 1 and the FDA just stood by. Get you bubble gum flavored cool smoke pack kids. We finally killed off most of the smoking with this generation of kids only to replace it with baby food flavored robot cock.

Bubble gum flavor is no different from this new sparkling seltzer crap. Aimed at dumb females.

How are they targeting kids? Why would they want to target kids? You have to be 18 to buy them.
