E-cig makers have 60 days to show they aren’t targeting minors

FDA declares war on (teen) vaping

Despite this extensive plan, some of the unelected bureaucrats at the FDA would still like to ban flavored e-cigarette products. If the don't, the FDA said it may pull the devices containing flavors that appeal to children from the market. That could lead to the removal of some major flavoured e-cigarette brands, including the popular products made by Juul Labs Inc., if they do not address the issue to the agency's satisfaction.

The agency also has issued more than 135 No-Tobacco-Sale Order Complaints, which can result in retailers being prohibited from selling tobacco products for specified periods of time. Despite the constant warnings that increased experimentation with e-cigarettes would lead to more smoking, consumption of conventional cigarettes by teenagers stubbornly continues to decline, reaching a record low a year ago in the Monitoring the Future Study, which began in 1975. The premise of such threats is that the interests of adults who might want to switch from smoking to a far less hazardous form of nicotine consumption should be sacrificed for the sake of curtailing e-cigarette use by minors, which is already illegal.

In a speech at FDA headquarters, commissioner Scott Gottlieb said the agency would also revisit a policy that extended the dates for some manufacturers of flavoured e-cigarettes to get FDA approval before selling their products. "We can not allow a whole new generation to become addicted to nicotine".

Congress gave the FDA the authority to regulate tobacco products in 2009.

The agency will furthermore be rising federal enforcement actions on e-cig gross sales to minors in convenience stores and other retail sites, Gottlieb said, and would explore closely at a alter to called "straw purchases", wherein adults search recommendation from internet-basically based mostly entirely stores and remove in bulk to resell to minors.

Gottlieb is remarkably cavalier about throwing adult smokers under the bus in the name of preventing adolescents from experimenting with e-cigarettes. "Juul is a product for adult smokers". Flavored e-cigarettes are said to be a tool that helps adults quit smoking traditional cigarettes, the main example of a plus the product can claim. Above that message is a link to the company's youth-prevention efforts. "We are committed to preventing underage use of our product, and we want to be part of the solution in keeping e-cigarettes out of the hands of young people", Juul spokesperson Victoria Davis said in a statement provided to TIME. They noted the survey did not ask specifically about Juul, a sleek, heavily-marketed e-cigarette brand that exploded onto the market and accounts for 70 percent of USA sales, according to analyst estimates. The FDA's chairman said the problem had reached an "epidemic proportion", and manufacturers have been given 60 days to show how they would address it. "Thousands of small-business vape shops across America do not engage in irresponsible marketing practices and don't even sell the products being targeted by the FDA with threatening letters", said Gregory Conley, president of the American Vaping Assn., a nonprofit organization that advocates for what it calls sensible regulation.

He also notes that while many adults who use e-cigarettes report that these products helped them stop smoking combustible tobacco, "the benefits of vaping devices for cessation has not yet been borne out at the population level in clinical or observational studies".
