Statement from Senator Heather Carter on Trump Administration's plan to pull flavored e-cigarett
"Today, the Trump Administration announced a bold plan to quell the growing epidemic of e-cigarette use among America’s youth. The Administration promised to publish rules directing the FDA to remove all non-tobacco flavored e-cigarettes from the marketplace. The tobacco industry has intentionally developed products and marketing practices designed to capture another generation of Americans with a dangerous addiction. Flavored e-cigarettes have been shown to entice kids into tobacco use and they become four times more likely to smoke cigarettes. The FDA should not delay and take immediate action to remove flavored e-cigarettes from shelves. Big tobacco posed a public health crisis to past generations, we cannot let them take another one."
