Trump retreats from flavor ban for e-Cigarettes

According to reports, President Trump has backed away from a proposal to ban flavored e-cigarettes. Advisers say that Trump decided to retreat from the plan after being warned that there could be backlash from voters, the NYT reported. The development comes as figures from the CDC last week showed that the death toll has risen to 42 people across the US.

Good, banning ecigs isn't the answer to idiots loading their Vapes up with rat poison. Vaping is still the big gay tho.

Why ban it in the first place? It's the vitamin supliments idiots were adding themselves that was leading to deaths.

Still a bunch of shit from MSM. No ABC the flavors are popular among adults. Quit playing the kid angle.

That was so much weaksauce. Trump needs to knuckle down and handle immigration and China, not be messing around with E cig shit.

Gotta stop adults from doing stuff that teens might like. Sounds like leftist philosophy to me.

Ban actual cigarettes before these. After all they kill more people in 10 minutes than vaping has ever even hurt.
