Flavored Vape Sales Go Up in Smoke

As soon as next week, the FDA is expected to ban the sale of most flavored e-cigarettes in thousands of US retail outlets and impose new rules for online sales.

Gas stations and convenience stores will be barred from selling the products, but they will still be available in vape and tobacco shops.

The crackdown on e-cigarettes that use prepackaged flavor pods—such as Juul products—is intended to curb vaping among youths. 1 million children were vaping in 2017; that number spiked to 3.5 million this year, according to government figures. High schoolers’ use of e-cigarettes spiked 77% in 2018.
