    Trump Administration Weighs Ban on Flavored E-Cigarettes

    Sitting in the Oval Office with Alex M. Azar II, the secretary of Health and Human Services, and Dr. Ned Sharpless, the acting Food and Drug Administration commissioner, President Trump acknowledged that there was a vaping problem, and said, “We’re going to have to do something about it.”

    Mr. Azar said that the F.D.A. would outline a plan within the coming weeks for removing most flavored e-cigarettes that are not tobacco products from the market.

    Pressure also began to mount as Michael R. Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York, decided to step in by announcing a $160 million push to ban flavored e-cigarettes. Long an opponent of traditional smoking, the former mayor said his organization, Bloomberg Philanthropies, would seek prohibitions of flavored e-cigarettes in at least 20 cities and states.

    Read that statement again. I suspect it's somehow an error, either Mr. Azar put goofed or the reporting journalists did. ALL our vapes are considered "tobacco products" by the FDA.

    Somehow, I don't think they're just going to go after flavored non-tobacco (cannabis?) vapes?

    I caught that too. I think he's trying to make a distinction between flavored cigars and ecigs, not ecigs and cannabis vapes. He's just not familiar with FDA lingo. My guess anyway.

    I'm hoping that they'll go after cig-a-likes and pods sold out of convenience stores and gas stations. There'll be tens of thousands of people out of a job if they go after vapeshops and eliquid manufacturers.

    So what are the chances we should be mass-purchasing e-liquid and replacement coils in case it isn't just Juul-like products they target?

    You should be doing that now, not later. Later might be too late.

    The product that's making people sick is unflavored, contains T_C, not nicotine, and is sold illegally on the black market. How are people safer by removing flavored nicotine products sold legally?

    I don't think it's strictly related to the recent outbreak. If it was, they would seek to ban unflavored as well. The recent illnesses didn't help, though.

    Some of the THC products are flavored.

    The flavor ban is just an extension of the flavored cigarette ban. May djarum vanilla cloves RIP.


    Also, won't someone please think of the children....

    Hopefully this is the link to Trump's talk about vaping. He says "vaping is not wonderful."

    It starts at 12:15

    The insanity continues.

    Really?...remove all flavored e-cigs that are not tobacco products? How can anyone say that with a straight face and clear conscience?

    It's completely ridiculous born either of total ignorance or bald-faced hypocrisy.

    Secretary Azar is actually blaming the Obama administration for allowing "these products to go on to the market in an unregulated way, by delaying enforcement, in the hopes that people consuming combustible tobacco would transition to a less harmful nicotine delivery vehicle."

    So Obama was presented with better information about vaping? Or that there was no one dying from it during his terms.. ? I'm so upset right now.
