Trump to propose ban on flavorings used in e-cigarettes

Idaho health officials are asking health care providers to be alert for signs of respiratory illness in patients who use vaping products, and to report any cases to public health officials.

President Trump says his administration is taking steps to remove most flavored vaping products from the market.

A ban on flavors would represent a huge blow to the vaping industry, including companies such as Juul, which has grown into a multibillion dollar business by selling mint, fruit and dessert flavored-nicotine products.

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.

By May 20, he said, e-cigarette companies making tobacco-flavored products would have the chance to file for approval by the FDA.

The proposed ban comes as cases of vaping-related lung illnesses have surged in recent weeks.

The president has not made any decisions regarding actions on e-cigarettes, sources said.

Azar said the administration would allow tobacco-flavored e-cigarettes to remain available as an option for adult smokers.

Juul and other vaping companies argue that their products are meant to help adult smokers wean themselves off traditional paper-and-tobacco cigarettes. The agency notes that scientists still have a lot to learn about whether e-cigarettes are effective for quitting smoking, and that additional research is needed to understand long-term health effects.

A few local governments, including San Francisco, have passed bans on flavored tobacco.

Earlier this month, nearby MI became the first state in the nation to announce a ban on flavored e-cigarettes.

"As news emerges from the USA and more research is conducted, we believe it is time to be extremely vigilant in Canada and not repeat past mistakes".

Most e-cigarettes contain colorless, flavorless chemicals such as propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin, which create an inhalable vapor when heated.
