FDA to ban most flavored e-cigarette flavors but menthol and tobacco

The Trump administration will ban flavored e-cigarette pods, with the exception of menthol and tobacco flavors, and flavored liquid nicotine products commonly sold in vape shops. The administration’s decision is a partial retreat from a commitment it made in September to quickly devise a ban of all flavors except those that tasted like tobacco.

So reading a few of the articles, they’re apparently “banning” pre filled cartridges that aren’t tobacco or menthol, while leaving the sold separate bottles of juice as is...which is stupidity because who doesn’t know how to refill a Jule pod. Good job nanny state, evil fruity pebbles flavored clouds in prepackaged form are off the streets, while the some assembly required fruity pebbles flavored couds are free and clear as god intended

Sounds like the government is "efficiently assorting" ecig companies sku list. They will see increase profits just from inventory and manufacturing savings. Plus the flavors division and R&D can de-staffed. Because no one really believes that not offering "tooty fruity"is going to curb an addicts nicotine jones.

Can we just ban the FDA instead?

The real answer is ban vitamin E-acetate as an additive in vape liquid. Is the government not following their own research? This all started with teens using black market thc pods and getting deathly ill from it. Laws are already in place making it illegal to distribute nicotine delivery systems to minors. They missed the mark completely and left consumers still exposed to a danger.

Government, you are not Mommy and Daddy, and it's about time you stop. You make it worse. If your public health people have a problem with teenagers vaping, I can sympathize, but the best I can endorse is to simply prohobit the selling and promotion of vaping products and accessories to anyone under the age of 18, and then leave folks alone. What are you going to do next? Prohibit fruit flavored candies and sodas, and proclaim that all sugary drinks and candies must be grain alcohol or vodka flavor? That's about how much sense your flavor bans make. I think it's enough to ask that vaping sales be restricted to adults. All that said. I am the mother. It's my job to warn the kiddos when they are doing something offensive and stupid that may kill them (although vaping doesn't strike me as a high risk activity, simply a yucky and exensive addiction). I am the best addictive drug preventative. Persuade me. Don't come hammering down on a bunch of small businesses and force people out of honest work.

This is bullshit directly prescribed from the cigarette and tobacco industry. this is NOT a free market, this is boomer neo-cons throwing their toys out the pram because they missed the innovation boat and are stuck in a dying industry because of it.

I disagree with Trump on this I think he's handling it like a Boomer. Why aren't we stopping the sale of cigarettes and other tobacco products until they take out the harmful chemicals they put in cigarettes to make them more addicting? Millions of people have died from tobacco related illnesses its no big deal. A couple dozen die from an illness related to vaping suddenly it's a crisis.
