Move to ban flavored vaping products

[KMSP Fox 9. September 11, 2019] Wednesday, President Donald Trump announced his administration is looking into banning most flavored e-cigs, which could have a massive impact on the multibillion dollar industry. The push comes in light of the lung injury cases nationwide, many which have impacted teens.

“There’s Skittles-flavored vaping, there’s gummy bear-flavored vaping – this isn’t to attract the 50-year-old, this is to attract the teenager and if you get rid of those appetizing flavors and all you have is tobacco-based vape product, that’s not appealing, that’s not what a teenager wants,” said Dr. Andrew Stiehm a pulmonologist with Allina Health.
