Trump says administration wants to ban flavored e-cigarettes

San Francisco also placed a ban on e-cigarettes, becoming the first city to do so while MI recently became the first state to prohibit the sales of the majority of vaping products. He said makers of tobacco-flavored e-cigarettes will have to seek Food and Drug Administration approval of their products by May 2020. "People are going to watch what we're saying and parents are going to be a lot tougher with respect to their children", he said.

President Trump and Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar talk to the media in the Oval Office, Wednesday, Sept. 11, 2019, at the White House in Washington.

The first lady, whose "Be Best" platform focuses in part on children's health and combating addiction, has spoken out a few times over her concerns over e-cigarette use by children.

Sarah Palin's husband has filed for divorce, according to TMZ
In the filing, Todd requested joint custody of their son Trig Palin . The Palins had five children together, four of whom are now adults.

The decision comes amid outcry over the increase in teen vaping.

The FDA regulates e-cigarettes and has authority to ban vaping flavors, but has resisted calls to take that step.

Azar said HHS intends to remove all flavored e-cigarettes from the market in upcoming months. Five million children are using e-cigarette products, Azar said, calling it an "alarming" trend. But he said that if children begin using those products, "we will take enforcement action there also". Its CEO, Gary Reedy, released a statement that said his organization will "advocate for a final proposal that includes all flavored tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, cigars, and menthol cigarettes and addresses nicotine addiction to maximize the impact on public health". But there is little evidence that e-cigarettes are effective for helping smokers quit. But other proposed flavor bans have stalled in state legislatures this year, often facing opposition from vaping lobbyists. While you could argue its better on the pockets, more reports are beginning to show that vaping is equally harmful to the body as smoking tobacco. E-cigarettes generally heat liquid containing nicotine.
