The United States will ban the taste of electronic cigarettes to reduce demand for youth
A US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) official said the US government will ban electronic cigarettes from fruit and candy stores at grocery stores and gas stations next week as measures to prevent teenage demand growth.
The official said the ban would only allow cigarettes, mints and mangoes to be made available at retail outlets, which would hurt Gel Labs in San Francisco and lead the electronics cigarette industry.
This department will also strengthen the age certification process for electronic cigarette sales online.
The initial restriction of the administration, which was first reported by the Washington Post and confirmed by Reuters, does not apply to electronic cigarette retailers or other specialty retailers.
Federal government data show that youth use of tobacco has increased more than 75% since last year, increasing pressure on measures to curb e-cigarettes. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) called it "epidemic."
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the increase in demand for electronic cigarettes rose to 16.2 million units from 2.26 million units in 2016, along with sales from Gul Labs.
In September, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) threatened to ban the sale of four large corporations that produce joules and electronic cigarettes, unless the minors are prevented from using them. The executives submited these companies to the use restriction of the minor for 60 days, and the use of the minors was almost finished.
