Federal Ban on Some Vape Products Goes Into Effect Today

A nationwide ban on many flavored e-cigarette products goes into effect today, but teenagers will still have access to nicotine vapes, according to experts.

The ban covers flavored vaping products that were enticing to teens. Flavors such as mint and the fruit flavors opened the floodgates on a teen vaping epidemic and are now banned. Menthol and tobacco flavorings will remain legal.

The ban also only applies to specific types of devices: cartridge or pre-filled pod devices, like those by Juul. Other devices will be available.

Despite having raised the age to buy vaping products and a number of other precautions being implemented, teens have found loopholes to continue gaining access to the materials. Experts have little faith the ban will work and continue o seek other methods and policies that will reduce teen consumption.
