Trump plan to curb teen vaping exempts some flavors

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. health officials will ban most flavored e-cigarettes popular with underage teenagers, but with major exceptions that benefit vaping manufacturers, retailers and adults who use the nicotine-emitting devices.

The Trump administration announced Thursday that it will prohibit fruit, candy, mint and dessert flavors from small, cartridge-based e-cigarettes that are popular with high school students. But menthol and tobacco-flavored e-cigarettes will be allowed to remain on the market.

The flavor ban will also entirely exempt large, tank-based vaping devices, which are primarily sold in vape shops that cater to adult smokers.

Together, the two exemptions represent a significant retreat from President Donald Trump’s original plan announced four months ago, which would have banned all vaping flavors — including menthol — from all types of e-cigarettes. The new policy will preserve a significant portion of the multibillion-dollar vaping market. And the changes are likely to please both the largest e-cigarette manufacturer, Juul Labs, and thousands of vape shop owners who sell the tank-based systems, which allow users to mix customized flavors.

E-cigarettes are battery-powered devices that typically heat a flavored nicotine solution into an inhalable aerosol. They have been pitched to adults as a less-harmful alternative to traditional cigarettes, but there is limited data on their ability to help smokers quit.

The Food and Drug Administration has struggled for years to find the appropriate approach to regulating vaping. Under current law, all e-cigarettes are supposed to undergo an FDA review beginning in May. Only those that can demonstrate a benefit for U.S. public health will be permitted to stay on the market.

“We have to protect our families,” Trump told reporters on Tuesday, ahead of the announcement. “At the same time, it’s a big industry. We want to protect the industry.”

The flavor ban applies to e-cigarettes that use pre-filled nicotine cartridges mainly sold at gas stations and convenience stores. Juul is the biggest player in that market, but it previously pulled all of its flavors except menthol and tobacco after coming under intense political scrutiny. Many smaller manufacturers continue to sell sweet, fruity flavors like “grape slushie,” “strawberry cotton candy” and “sea salt blueberry.”

The flavor restrictions won’t affect the larger specialty devices sold at vape shops, which typically don’t admit customers under 21. These tank-based systems allow users to fill the device with the flavor of their choice. Sales of these devices represent an estimated 40% of the U.S. vaping business, with sales across some 15,000 to 19,000 shops.

Still, the new policy represents the federal government’s biggest step yet to combat a surge in teen vaping that officials fear is hooking a generation of young people on nicotine. In the latest government survey, more than 1 in 4 high school students reported using e-cigarettes in the previous month, despite federal law banning sales to those under 18. Late last month Trump signed a law raising the minimum age to purchase all tobacco and vaping products from 18 to 21 nationwide.

“We will not stand idly by as this crisis among America’s youth grows and evolves, and we will continue monitoring the situation and take further actions as necessary,” Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said in a statement. Companies that don’t stop making and distributing the restricted products within 30 days risk penalties by the FDA, including fines and seizures.

Incoming FDA Commissioner Stephen Hahn said the government’s approach attempts to balance the problem of underage vaping with “the potential role that e-cigarettes may play in helping adult smokers transition completely away” from regular cigarettes.

But the decision to permit menthol and exempt tank-based vapes was immediately condemned by anti-tobacco advocates who have lobbied the Trump administration to follow through on its initial pledge to ban all flavors except tobacco.

“Only the elimination of all flavored e-cigarettes can end the worsening youth e-cigarette epidemic and stop e-cigarette companies from luring and addicting kids with flavored products,” said Matthew Myers, of the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, in a statement.

Myers’ group and others have long opposed all flavors in tobacco products, including menthol in traditional cigarettes. They argue that teenagers who vape will simply shift to using menthol if it remains on the market.

When Trump officials first sketched out their plans at a White House event in September they specifically said menthol would be banned. But that effort stalled after vaping proponents and lobbyists pushed back and White House advisers told Trump that a total flavor ban could cost him votes.

Industry groups including the Vapor Technology Association launched an aggressive social media campaign — #IVapeIVote — contending that the plan would force the closure of vaping shops, eliminating jobs and sending users of electronic cigarettes back to traditional smokes.

Trump’s initial announcement came amid an outbreak of unexplained lung illnesses tied to vaping. But since then health officials have tied the vast majority of the cases to a contaminating filler added to illicit THC vaping liquids. THC is the chemical in marijuana that makes users feel high. Makers of legal nicotine-based vaping products have tried to distance themselves from the problem.

Trump suggested ahead of the announcement that the flavor restrictions might be temporary.

“Hopefully, if everything’s safe, they’re going to be going very quickly back onto the market,” he told reporters at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.

Trump Video: Vapor Flavors Listening Session

VapeSling E-Cig Mod Holder Slings, American Made

November 22, 2019 Session Notes:

President Trump listened intently to groups on both sides.

  • Vapor 21, the law to restrict sales to 21 and older, was agreed on by all present at the meeting. This includes Vapor Industry and Anti Vapor/Flavor groups attending the meeting.
  • Vapor Opposition groups made their case on flavors, based on youth appeal and use. Weak cases were expressed without scientific basis, rather teen hear-say.
  • Pro Vapor groups used facts and scientific research for harm reduction. However, the opposition reminded and seeks to only ban flavors, not the devices, nor the industry. Unwittingly stated by anti flavor groups, and countered with “a flavor ban that removes every flavor excluding only tobacco flavor would indeed deal the Vape Shop industry a serious blow”. A statement was made that Vape shops would not survive selling Tobacco flavor only. This was met with little to no concerns by the meetings opposition, especially and surprisingly by Mitt Romney.
  • Mitt Romney was on hand for the Flavor Ban to be strictly tobacco. Menthol as well as Mint would fall into the banned flavors category. Mostly, Mitt was there to muddy the waters on any facts presented by Pro Vapor industry and .ORGs. The fact reversals blasted by Romney were so aggressive, that rebuttals was barely heard or expressed.
  • JUUL and Reynolds were there, of course. The BIG T dogs went along with every anti flavor suggestion, knowing that their billion$ can survive any product sales hit.

Trump, FDA and Flavors: Take Action Now!

VapeSling E-Cig Mod Holder Slings, American Made
CASAA

On Monday, November 4, or early in the week, we are anticipating an announcement from the Trump Administration regarding FDA guidance about sales of flavored vapor products. According to recent reports, this guidance is expected to go as far as banning every flavor other than tobacco and menthol. In spite of years of communications from consumers and meetings with industry stakeholders, it is clear that officials remain unknowledgeable about how the vapor industry functions and what customers need.

Two flavors will not sustain independent vapor retailers and
will unnecessarily make vaping less attractive
to people who want to switch away from smoking.


The White House needs to hear from adult vapers and anyone who loves a vaper! A flavor ban won’t protect our children, but it will kill their parents.

We need to Light Up The SwitchboardAt The White House!

On your call:

  • The operator will likely ask where they can direct your call
  • Simply tell them that flavored vapor products saved your life,
  • Tobacco and Menthol aren’t enough to save small businesses or help people quit smoking; and,
  • tell them “We Vape, We Vote.

Be polite, be brief, and say thank you.

Tell President Trump to NOT Ban Flavors on Vapor Products

Send an email to the President with one click!

Attention
White House Switchboard: 202-456-1414

Send an email to the President with one click!

On behalf of almost 14,000 American vapor business owners, more than 87,000 American vapor workers, and the 13 million adult consumers they serve who use flavored vapor products, I am asking you NOT to implement a federal flavor ban on vapor products.

A ban on flavored vapor products will devastate more than 11,000 small businesses nationwide and result in tens of thousands of people laid off.  The Made in America flavored vapor industry is larger than concrete industry and larger than the iron and steel forging industry. The vapor industry has a total economic impact of $24 Billion on the U.S. economy – all of which is hanging in the balance as you consider this action which will wipe that out.  

The vast majority of vapers are adults who successfully quit (or are trying to quit) cigarettes with the assistance of vapor products by relying on a variety of flavor options like fruit flavors – but not tobacco flavor.   And, there is plenty of research and survey data that shows that flavors keep smokers from turning back to deadly cigarettes.

Send an email to the President with one click!

It is already illegal for teens to purchase vapor products. And, there are many other steps we can take to limit teen use of vapor products including stricter marketing standards and stronger enforcement of the laws already on the books.  But, banning these products for adults will only hurt the U.S. economy and send millions of adults back to smoking cigarettes or to the black market. Additionally, deadly combustible cigarettes will still be available on the open market and left untouched. 

Researchers say that flavored vapor products truly represent a safer alternative to cigarettes.

  • E-cigarettes are at least 95% safer than cigarettes according to the Royal College of Physicians.
  • In Feb. 2019 the New England Journal of Medicine published a study which concluded vapor products are twice as effective helping smokers quit than traditional cessation methods like nicotine gum or patch. 
  • Georgetown University public health experts conclude that switching to e-cigarettes would save between 1.6 and 6.6 million lives over the next 10 years.
  • The American Cancer Society’s Public Health Statement on Eliminating Combustible Tobacco Use in the United States stated, “switching to the exclusive use of e-cigarettes is preferable to continuing to smoke combustible products.”
  • There has been no indication that industry standard nicotine-containing vapor products are to blame for recent cases of lung illness. In fact, FDA investigators found that black market THC were likely the cause.

A flavor ban is a terrible idea that would be devastating to all the growing small businesses dedicated to helping their customers quit deadly cigarettes. Please consider these businesses and all Americans desperately trying to quit and change course. Please do NOT implement a federal flavor ban on vapor products.
