  • Trump Administration to Ban Flavored E-Cigarettes

Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said the FDA is drafting a plan that will remove all flavored vaping products from shelves except plain tobacco.

"We have a problem in our country, it's a new problem. and it's called vaping, especially vaping as it pertains to innocent children", Trump said in the Oval Office.

Tell people you would rather they not vape in your vehicle, home or anywhere else that you have some sway.

The restrictions announced by Trump officials would only apply to nicotine vaping products, which are regulated by the FDA. In fact all the 450 cases and six deaths are related to use of ingredients like tetrahydrocannabinol, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana and flavors. He told NPR in March that vaping products at that time were on the market "out of an exercise of enforcement discretion by the FDA".

"The last thing you want to do is make it more hard for smokers to quit smoking, and flavors do play a role for adults to quit smoking", Bakst said in an interview.

Vaping, which has been trendy among young adults and middle age people trying to ween off cigarettes, has been at the forefront of growing health concerns.

Federal law bars e-cigarette and all other tobacco sales to those under age 18.

The approval process could take more than a year.

The CDC has said anyone who uses a vape device should consider stopping while public-health officials investigate the cause of the condition.

Preliminary data from the latest survey of youth tobacco use shows this trend is continuing: More than a quarter of high school kids used vapes in 2019, according to HHS. The vast majority of underage teens consumed fruit, menthol or mint flavors.

But a Juul spokesman said in a statement that the company "strongly" agreed with the need for "aggressive action" on flavors. Former FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb seemed concerned about young vapers but not enough to ban flavors.

Some health experts have seen vaping as offering an "off ramp" for smokers, but the proposed ban casts enormous uncertainty over those hopes.

E-cigarettes can emit a huge cloud of vapor that can affect an entire crowd of people. He added that flavored products could seek the agency's permission to re-enter the market.

It's something Ottawa's Medical Health Officer will ask of the Board of Health on Monday, along with a recommendation to require plain and standardized packaging on vaping products.

The Food and Drug Administration announced plans to finalize a policy in the coming weeks that will enable it to remove many nontobacco flavored e-cigarettes from the market.

"Vaping has become a very big business, as I understand it, but we can't allow people to get sick and allow our youth to be so affected", Trump said.

The president and top U.S. officials expressed concern that flavored vaping products ranging from mint to mango were drawing millions of youth into nicotine addiction.

"Finally, the FDA is doing its job", said Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., who has prodded the agency for months to take action on flavors.

A few local governments, including San Francisco, have passed bans on flavored tobacco. But "at that point all flavored e-cigarettes other than tobacco flavor would have to be removed from the market".

Juul Labs, which has the biggest share of the US market for e-cigarettes, is one of the country's most richly valued closely held startups.

During 2015-2017, almost 2,035 e-cigarettes have exploded or caused burns in the United States alone.

E-cigarettes are a popular substitute for traditional smoking products.
