Trump pushes forward a vaping ban that would make flavored e-cigs illegal

On Wednesday, President Trump held a policy meeting at the White House to discuss national vaping guidelines amidst hundreds of cases of vaping-related illnesses across the United States.

The Trump administration, with guidance from the FDA, is preparing to ban the sale of all flavored e-cigarettes across the US, the administration said in an unexpected announcement. The ban will build on former FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb's proposal to ban flavored tobacco products like Juul.

Well, given that e-cigarettes have killed so many more than guns, glad he's focused on this and not AR-15s, background checks, and the like.

But what will all the proud boys do??

My favorite part of his press statement ---" and teenagers are going up to their parents, 'Mom, I want to vape...."

And peeps actually plan to vote for this a$$hole.

When you continue to shoot with a blunderbuss, occasionally one pellet hits a target.

Banning things always works (eg prohibition).   Prediction:  not only will vaping continue, but state governments will no longer collect tax revenue from their sales.

A big win for the Russian Mob.

Is that a euphemism for the tobacco industry?

All about the $$, both for the states that want the tax revenue and settlement payouts from smoking and for the tobacco companies- particularly the ones that own big vape businesses. Regulation works in their favor in the long run because they can afford the lawyers and compliance staff while little guys can’t.

But yeah it’s always “for the children”. Every attempt to take away something is.
