    I think this is a great idea. These things are targeted to kids and have also been advertised as a healthy alternative to cigarettes(https://www.popsci.com/juul-illegal-marketing-vaping-fda-warning/). It's almost starting to look like they are actually worse than cigarettes. On a more personal level I hate how everyone thinks it's ok to blow this shit in your face just because it cherry flavored or something. Fucking disgusting.
    Trump administration moves to ban flavored e-cigarettes
    https://www.cnn.com/2019/09/11/politics/donald-trump-vape-e-cigarette-flavors/index.html

    President Donald Trump said Wednesday that the US Food and Drug Administration would be putting out "some very strong recommendations" regarding the use of flavored e-cigarettes in "a couple of weeks."

    Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, seated in the Oval Office with the President, first lady Melania Trump and the acting commissioner of the FDA, announced that newly proposed enforcement policy would require flavored e-cigarette companies to take their products off the market.
    "It'll take several weeks for us to put out the final guidance that will announce all the parameters around the enforcement policy, and then there will likely be about a 30-day delay to effective date, as is customary," Azar said. But "at that point all flavored e-cigarettes other than tobacco flavor would have to be removed from the market."

    Melania Trump tweets concerns over e-cigarettes

    By May 20, he said, e-cigarette companies making tobacco-flavored products would have the chance to file for approval by the FDA. At that time, flavored-product manufacturers would also have the opportunity to file, but their products would be off the market until approved.
    A sixth person in the United States has died from lung disease related to vaping, Kansas health officials said Tuesday.
    The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the FDA and state health departments have been investigating this outbreak. Health officials say they haven't found a definitive cause or a clear connection between cases, but some are zeroing in on potential clues.
    As of Friday, there have been more than 450 possible cases of lung illness associated with using e-cigarettes reported to the CDC across 33 states and the US Virgin Islands. The numbers have been changing frequently.
    The first lady, whose "Be Best" platform focuses in part on children's health and combating addiction, has spoken out more than once over her concerns over e-cigarette use by children.
    "I am deeply concerned about the growing epidemic of e-cigarette use in our children. We need to do all we can to protect the public from tobacco-related disease and death, and prevent e-cigarettes from becoming an on-ramp to nicotine addiction for a generation of youth," she tweeted earlier this week.
    CNN's Kate Bennett contributed to this report.

    They're going to write it in a way that fucks people that smoke stuff like Drew Estate Java or the CAO flavored cigars. Which given the price of those things ($10 a stick for some) no teenager would fucking buy.

    @Falsedawn @Fawlty

    I guarantee Altria will have a hand in writing this shit so they can keep making shit and no one else can.

    I'd be down for that too, but it would end up just like weed is now. So it's probably just best to continue what they are doing with the PSA and stuff. It's worked pretty well in reducing newer generations from smoking cigarettes.

    Weed isn't being mass produced by mega corporations and filled with chemicals that include cancer inducing carcinogens and create a stronger addiction.

    Small government ftw banning things that do not pose any risk to persons other than those using them. Maybe next we can ban Boones Farm and Mike's Hards. After all, they appeal to kids, alcohol causes more death than electronic nicotine delivery sticks, and drunk driving causes thousands of deaths a year.

    Meh, at least he's proposing something that actually seems to be a good faith attempt to improve the country.

    Disavow. Right after I just got done explaining why I support him too. Tsk.

    We don’t need anymore “bans” on stupid behavior. Smoking is unhealthy. Everyone knows it. They smoke anyway. Now, assuming research shows that vaping is unhealthy (and I’d need to see some real convincing evidence), people should know about it. They will still vape. In a free society, people will always choose to do stupid and unhealthy activities. That’s something we just have to deal with. Here’s an idea for parents: don’t let your kids vape. Teach them to have healthier habits.

    I will also point out that vaping / e-cigarettes threaten the profits of a very large and powerful industry. The tobacco industry is not above funding a “crisis campaign” against their competitors. I would not be surprised to see Phillip-Morris behind the funding of anti-vaping studies. Just a thought, before we rush to ban the latest incarnation of Satan.

    Kids aren't vaping cuz it tastes good. Kids smoked regular horribly tasing cough inducing cigarettes forever because they think it makes them look cool. Not tasting like dirt is just a bonus. I think the way they market them should be watched and harsh punishments for anyone who is providing kids with this stuff is the answer.

    Just being flavored doesn’t mean it’s “targeted at kids” the biggest market for flavored cigars is women; but the vaping crap foes back to freedom, people should be able to do it, however and whenever they want

    Vaping is disgusting and people who do it always try to do it indoors and then try to lawyer their way out of it when you tell them to take it outside.
