Teen e-cigarette use, product flavors come under regulatory scrutiny

The FDA said it cannot tolerate “a whole generation of young people becoming addicted to nicotine as a trade off for enabling adults to access these products,” and so it has launched a crackdown on sales of e-cigarettes to teens.

  • In an unprecedented move, the Food and Drug Administration has ordered five brands — Juul, Vuse, MarkTen, blu e-cigs, and Logic — to submit plans to address teen use of their products within 60 days.
  • Across the entire e-cigarette category, the FDA is considering restricting manufacturers from selling flavored nicotine liquid or making the products undergo an agency review.
  • E-cigarettes, particularly Juul, have become a phenomenon among high school and middle school students.
