Tobacco: Flavoured vape ban

06 Jan 2020 - Alcohol & Tobacco

The US government is banning most flavoured e-cigarettes in a bid to curb the rising tide of youth vaping. The Food and Drug Administration said cartridge-based e-cigarettes in flavours other than tobacco or menthol would be illegal unless specifically authorised by the government. The change will take effect in early February, outlawing cartridges with fruit, mint and candy flavours. The ban will exempt large, tank-based rechargeable vaping devices, sold in vape shops that cater to adults.
