Trump Administration Announces Flavored E-Cigarettes Ban

The Trump administration has announced it will ban most flavored e-cigarettes, in response to the growing number of teenagers and young adults who use e-cigarettes as their first nicotine-based product.

Per the Daily Caller:

The ban outlaws most flavored vapes such as fruit and mint flavors, but it allows exceptions for certain types of flavors, including tobacco and menthol, according to the Associated Press.

The plan released Thursday by U.S. health officials deviates significantly from what the president  said he wanted to do in September when he first floated a vaping ban.

Trump at the time announced a ban on all flavored e-cigarettes, saying that he and first lady Melania Trump were concerned about its use among young people.

While vaping is less harmful than smoking regular cigarettes, it is certainly more harmful than not using anything at all, according to Michael Blaha, M.D., M.P.H., a professor of medicine at Johns Hopkins.
