FDA to Ban Menthol Cigarettes and Flavored E-Cigarettes


The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has announced a plan to ban the sale of menthol cigarettes and flavored e-cigarettes in an effort to curb youth smoking and vaping. The proposed ban would apply to all flavored e-cigarettes except for tobacco and menthol flavors, which will still be allowed to be sold.

The FDA says that the ban is necessary because flavored tobacco products are particularly appealing to young people, and can lead to a lifetime of addiction and health problems. The agency also says that menthol cigarettes are used disproportionately by African Americans, and that the ban is an effort to address health disparities related to tobacco use.

The announcement has been met with mixed reactions from the electronic cigarette industry. While some companies that offer custom-made vaping devices or manufacturer e-liquid have expressed support for the ban, others argue that it unfairly targets e-cigarettes and that it will push former smokers back to traditional cigarettes.

Critics of the ban also argue that it will hurt small businesses involved in electronic cigarette production and limit consumer choice. However, supporters of the ban say that it is an important step in protecting public health and reducing the toll of smoking-related illnesses.

The ban is still subject to review and public comment, and it is unclear when it will go into effect. However, the FDA says that it is committed to taking action to reduce youth tobacco use and that it will continue to explore other regulatory measures to achieve this goal.
