On Thursday, Juul Labs Inc. announced it would no longer sell their popular mint-flavored e-cigarettes in the United States. This comes after the company made moves to suspend the sale of its other flavored e-cigarettes in stores and online.
There is also some speculation that the federal government will be implementing an overall ban on all flavored e-cigarettes, except for menthol and regular tobacco.
The mint flavor accounts for about 70 percent of Juul’s sales and is rather popular among underage users.
Juul has come under fire for contributing to youth vaping and the illnesses and deaths associated with it. They have been particularly criticized for marketing to minors, a charge they deny.
