The Trump administration is seeking to ban all non-tobacco flavors of e-cigarettes in the wake of a massive spike in teen vaping and the spread of a mysterious illness that has sickened hundreds of people across the country.
President Trump told reporters in the Oval Office that vaping is a problem “especially vaping as it pertains to innocent children.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Youth vaping has skyrocketed in the past year, driven largely by teenagers becoming drawn to sweet and fruit-flavored e-cigarette pods easily accessible in stores. The FDA has struggled to keep up with regulation.
Federal statistics show a 78 percent increase in e-cigarette use among high school students in just one year.
“We can’t have our youth be so affected,” Trump said. “People are dying with vaping, so we’re looking at it very closely.”
President Trump: “We have a problem in our country. It’s a new problem. It’s a problem nobody really thought about too much a few years ago and it’s called vaping, especially vaping as it pertains to innocent children.” pic.twitter.com/jy6msEPcNn
