Juul Stops Selling Mint-Flavored E-cigarette Popular With Teenagers

"These results are unacceptable", said the company's CEO K.C. Crosthwaite, adding in a statement that the company must "earn the trust of society".

"These benefits are unacceptable", explained Juul CEO K.C. Crosthwaite, according to CNBC, "and that is why we will have to reset the vapor class in the USA and gain the rely on of modern society by doing work cooperatively with regulators, attorneys standard, community wellness officials, and other stakeholders to battle underage use".

Fruit, candy, dessert and other sweet vaping flavors have been targeted due to their appeal to underage users. Previously, the e-cigarette maker stopped selling mango, creme and cucumber flavors, and with stopping the sale of mint pods, this will leave Juul with the tobacco flavor.

Myers included that "with mint eliminated, children will practically definitely change to Juul's menthol pods, and other e-cigarette companies will proceed to provide mint as extended as the federal governing administration enables".

"It's just semantics", Bonnie Halpern-Felsher, a professor and expert in teen vaping at Stanford University told NBC News. Raising the minimum age to 21 is expected to limit the supply of those products in USA schools. In contrast, less than 6% of teenagers across all grades preferred menthol.

Germany To Mark 30th Anniversary Of Fall Of Berlin Wall
The wall was constructed in 1961 to stop the flood of East Germans fleeing to capitalist West Berlin to escape communist rule. Earlier this week, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was not at the ceremony but visited Berlin .

Juul's decision on mint comes as the US Food and Drug Administration is expected to publish a final rule that would remove some flavored nicotine vaping products from the US market.

The vaping industry is facing unprecedented scrutiny amid a mysterious epidemic of lung conditions linked to e-cigarette use that has killed 39 and sickened more than 2,000 mostly young people in the United States in recent months. At least 39 deaths associated with the products have been confirmed, and additional deaths are under investigation.

But preliminary work has linked a cutting agent used in cannabis flavourings, usually sold on the black market, to lung injury.

"The latest national and state findings suggest products containing THC, particularly those obtained off the street or from other information sources (e.g. friends, family members, illicit dealers), are linked to most of the cases and play a major role in the outbreak", the CDC said on Thursday.
