Juul to stop selling mint-flavored e-cigarette pods

Juul Labs Inc will immediately stop selling its mint-flavored nicotine cartridges in the US. The announcement is Juul’s latest attempt to ward off public outcry that blames the company for the uptick in e-cigarette use among teens. The announcement came days after a government report showed that more teens than ever were using e-cigarettes and that Juul is the preferred brand for most of them.

I absolutely hate these bans it's already illegal for kids to purchase these items so how is making things even more illegal going to stop from getting in the hands of kids the only thing you are doing is stopping consenting adults that simply want a variety of choices of flavor for their product. Why not instead of banning things you maybe put a serial number on each cartridge make it mandatory to scan the persons ID that way if a kid has one and is caught you can look up the serial number link the ID and impose a heavy fine on an individual purchasing the product for minors.

never smoked juul myself... but isn't mint just another name for menthol? which they are still selling btw. even if there is a difference, nothing to stop em from rebranding to something like "menthol pure" or some other thinly disquised name for mint flavor

The ever shrinking cig markets are having to also contend with ecigs.

This has nothing to do with the former juul executive claiming the company was trying to push expired mint pods a week ago. It's for the children, you bigot.

it's the mint of course! Not sucking in insane amounts of vapor. Humans came from a planet whose atmosphere was 90% mint vapor.
