Retreat from Flavor Ban Draws Fire

The Trump administration’s revised plans to limit flavored e-cigarettes has drawn fire from public health groups who argue its efforts aren’t going far enough.

The administration is set to announce this week that it will ban flavored e-cigarette pods (cartridges popular among teens) but not flavored e-liquids that go in “open tank” products often sold by vape shops. “Fruity and minty”—but not menthol or tobacco—flavors will be targeted. 

The American Lung Association and others said the proposal—a big step back from Trump’s September pledge to ban the flavors—is a political compromise that won’t reduce the surge in vaping by America’s youth.
