We all know that cigarettes are out, but vaping is in.
Many believe that electronic cigarettes are less dangerous than tobacco products – that is true, however, the vapors are laced with nicotine and can be addictive.
With everything from nicotine highs and customizable e-cigarettes, to flavors that taste like bubble gum, this new form of smoking has become a social norm… or as the FDA would call it, an epidemic.
The FDA is cracking down on teen vaping. This week the federal agency sent over 1,300 letters to retailers telling them to submit plans to prevent illegal youth vaping. If manufacturers can’t prove their actions, the agency claims they will halt sales of flavored e-cigarettes to prevent children and teens from buying the nicotine devices or even go the distance to pull the products off the market.
The manufacturing companies have 60 days to figure out how to reduce youth sales before they face legal action.
