White House to Ban Most Flavored E-Cigarettes

After months of delay, the Trump Administration is expected to announce this week that it will ban mint-, fruit- and dessert-flavored e-cigarette cartridges, while allowing the continued sale of menthol- and tobacco-flavored vapes.

The White House originally proposed a ban on flavored e-cigarettes — thought to be especially enticing to teens — back in September. But since then, the Administration had seemed to bow to industry and political pressures and back away from such a ban.

As reported Tuesday by The New York Times, the new ban would have one important exception: Flavored liquid nicotine used in “open tank systems” will not be outlawed. That’s seen as a concession to the burgeoning vape shop business.
