Administration strips down flavored vaping product regs

The Trump Administration has announced that it will remove some, but not all, flavored e-cigarette products from the U.S. market, in a compromise that has sparked criticism from both vaping advocates and adversaries.

The new plan applies to the cartridge-based e-cigarette products made by companies like Juul Labs, which are particularly popular among teenagers. Under the policy, companies will be prohibited from selling e-liquids in fruit, dessert and mint flavors, leaving only menthol and tobacco products on the market.

Larger, tank-style e-cigarettes - which users can manually fill with e-liquids of their choice, and are primarily sold in age-restricted vape shops - would be exempt.
