Teen Vaping: FDA's Scary Plans To Limit E-cig Sales

The core of the controversial appearance of youth clothes is Juul Labs, a California-based company whose exponential growth in recent years has given the 73 percent market share of the US $ 2.5 billion US e-cigarette market. Like cigarettes, weapons draw their nicotine from tobacco, but instead of shining, users get a chance from a liquid sold in both closed bins and refill containers, depending on the brand’s system they choose. That liquid is heated and creates the steam that gives the product category its name.

Juul has sold millions of their ultra popular weapons, which is a closed system. The only way to use one is to buy their replenishments, which have been available both in stores and online. The boats come in tobacco flavored versions and those with additives that create sweet or fruity flavors, which have been a special target for critical iris for their potential appeal to underage diapers. But on Friday, CNBC reported that Juul will soon announce plans to voluntarily remove all its tasty products from most brick stocks in response to FDA’s expected changes. It is unclear whether it includes violence and tobacco stores. (The company declined a request for comment.)

Since its launch for 201

5, Juul has been the subject of particular fascination among the teenagers. First, the company’s ads had a much lighter and youthful feel. Now, as a clear concession to regulators and critics, its ads only have people over the age of 35 who have actually stopped cigarettes by vaving. Despite the change in advertising demographics, the brand’s small slim weapons look like flash drives and are charged via USB, making them extremely portable and, for teens, easy to hide from parents and teachers.

Vape juice (its actual name!) Contains tobacco derivatives, so sales are legally restricted to people 18 years and over. Juul’s website verifies the buyer’s ages during account creation. According to experts, however, it is not enough to keep it out of the teenager’s hands. Bonnie Halpern-Felsher, a development psychologist and professor of pediatrician at Stanford University, says that the teenagers “first stop” are not in stores. “The majority of young people get their products from each other, and others from smokers or junk shops. Young people do not get them from convenience stores,” she says.

Due to the lucrative black market of teenage social circles, even if the products are removed from most brickfields, it would only take a wonderful teenage teenager with a helpful older sibling (or simply an 18-year college retiree) to keep a whole school filled with juul pods. In addition, Halpern-Felsher says that her latest research suggests teenagers like mint and menthol alternatives – which the FDA will allow to remain publicly available in stores – as much as the more fruity flavors. “We must prohibit flavors across the board, within all sales areas,” says Halpern-Felsher. “This is a good first step, but it’s not enough.”
