FDA’s Bizarre Ban on E-Cigarettes Would Endanger Millions of Lives

1 0 0

Vaping products can save lives, but not without the permission of one of America’s most powerful federal agencies, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Led by Scott Gottlieb, the FDA is on the cusp of effectively banning flavored vaping products, despite the potential for said products to transition smokers away from traditional cigarettes. After repeatedly decrying the “epidemic” of teenage vaping, Axios reported that Commissioner Gottlieb, “has presented senior White House staff with his plan to effectively ban the sale of flavored e-cigarettes in convenience stores throughout the United States, according to two sources familiar with the meeting.” This bizarre ban would unravel years’ worth of progress in harm reduction, taking away life-saving products from millions of smokers.

Commissioner Gottlieb has rightly sounded the alarm on the dangers of cigarettes, noting that, “the overwhelming amount of death and disease attributable to tobacco is caused by addiction to cigarettes — the only legal consumer product that, when used as intended, will kill half of all long-term users."
