Trump administration proposing ban on the sale of all non-tobacco e-cigarettes


THAN 20 HAVE SUED THEM SEPARATELY IN STATE COURT. PRESIDENT TRUMP SAYS HIS ADMINISTRATION IS WORKING TO BAN ALL NONTOBACCO E-CIGARETTE PRODUCTS AND THIS COMES AS HEALTH OFFICIALS WARN OF A SURGE IN VAPING RELATED LUNG ILLNESSES. SIX PEOPLE HAVE REPORTEDLY DIED. DR. MARC SIEGEL INVESTIGATES TONIGHT AT THE SCIENCE BACKS UP THE POSSIBLE BAND.>>THE CENTER FOR DISEASE CONTROL AFTER 450 CASES SO FAR OF A SUDDEN AND SEVERE RESPIRATORY ILLNESS TIED TO VAPING. STATE HEALTH AUTHORITIES HAVE FOUND THAT A VAST MAJORITY OF THESE CASES HAVE BEEN ASSOCIATED WITH VAPING CANNABIS OIL PRODUCTS CONTAINING THC AND THEY ARE ATTEMPTING TO DETERMINE WHICH CHEMICAL ADDITIVES ARE AT FAULT INCLUDING POSSIBLY VITAMIN E. MEANWHILE HHS, CDC AND “THE AMERICAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION” HAVE ALL ADVISED PEOPLE TO STOP VAPING. THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION ANNOUNCED TODAY THAT IT PLANS TO CLEAR THE MARKET OF UNAUTHORIZED NONTOBACCO FLAVORED E-CIGARETTE PRODUCTS. THIS ANNOUNCEMENT IS NOT DIRECTLY TIED TO THE ILLNESSES BUT RATHER TO HER LUMINARY NUMBERS RELEASED FROM THE NATIONAL YOUTH TOBACCO SURVEY THAT SHOWED THAT MORE THAN A QUARTER OF HIGH SCHOOL KIDS ARE VAPING AND CLOSE TO TWO-THIRDS SAY IT’S BECAUSE OF THE FLAVORS, WHILE SHOWING A LACK OF AWARENESS AND THE NICOTINE CONTENT. IN FACT, E-CIG USERS ARE ALMOST FOUR TIMES AS LIKELY AS NONUSERS TO ULTIMATELY TURN TO TOBACCO. BUT VAPING ADVOCATES POINT TO THE DECLINE OF CIGARETTE SMOKING AMONG TEENS AS EVIDENCE THAT E-CIGS ARE HAVING A POSITIVE IMPACT IN THAT OVER REGULATING WILL LEAD TO MORE TOBACCO SMOKING AMONG TEENS.>>WE JUST SAW A RECORD-SETTING 27% DECLINE IN TEEN SMOKING.>>THE ESTEEMED “NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE” PUBLISHED A STUDY EARLIER THIS YEAR THAT SHOWED THAT E-CIGARETTES ARE MORE EFFECTIVE TOOL FOR QUITTING SMOKING THAN OTHER NICOTINE PRODUCTS LIKE THE PATCH OR GUM. SO WHILE TEENS ARE NOT LEGALLY ALLOWED TO BUY E-CIGARETTES IN ALL 50 STATES AND THE PROBLEM IS TRYING TO ENFORCE THIS, AT THE SAME TIME THERE APPEARS TO BE A

  • Trump is no different then any career politician at this point. Government wasn't instituted for this kind of stuff. Sadly, Trump has zero Constitutional values to keep him from overreaching.

  • Millions dead from cigarettes = Legal

    Zero deaths from marijuana = Class 2 designation. Illegal.

    This is Washington D.C. logic.

  • Finally the most truth about vaping in the news… it's the vitamin e oil in the black market thc cartridges… the uk has vape shops in hospitals so why would we be banning it when it's 97 percent safer than cigarettes

  • How about we start holding parents or guardians accountable for their young ones ?!?!?! I have a child and if I ever find out he was using one of my Vapes he would face the wrath of hell and loose any and all freedoms until I was comfortable knowing he was done experimenting

  • I’m a big Trump supporter and love you Mr. President but this is a big mistake so many people will die that will return to cigarettes 🚬 or black market flavored e liquid. Then it’s on you Mr.President🇺🇸

  • Vape shops are f'd now. Good. They buy juice from China and don't know what's in it. Then just turn around and sell it with no consequences about it. Sht might be China doing it on purpose.

  • In 2017, 39,773 people died from gun-related injuries in the U.S., according to the CDC. This doesn't mean vaping should be overlooked and isn't an issue, what it does mean is priorities are not in sync with realities. The NRA/GOP blames video games and mental health. The NRA/GOP says criminals will get guns anyway and commit crimes regardless of laws. Wearing a seat belt doesn't prevent accidents either. Having a drivers licence doesn't stop someone from drinking and driving. Having licence plates on cars doesn't prevent someone from speeding. Having traffic laws doesn't mean everyone will always obey them. The NRA/GOP logic is flawed. But go ahead and ban vaping it might have killed 6 people. How many people die from smoking cigarettes each year? (over 400,000 per year). The priorities of this Administration and the GOP are bought. If vaping is an issue with the GOP why isn't all tobacco a priority?

  • Not sure where Trump is going with this. How many deaths from e-cigs vs how many from actual cigarettes, or alcohol… Just seems like the priority is off. Did Tobacco companies get to Trump?

  • These brainless guys grow Man Buns and sip Soy Lattes. In time they’ll just find something else way more dangerous to suck up into their front holes.

  • Smoking is parasitic because I know after smoking for 47yrs X 25 a day. Cigarettes and smoking industry should be banned , it only takes 2 weeks of cold turkey.

  • Young people consider it their right to be stupid and reckless. You know how young people feel immortal? This could cost a few votes in 2020. Trump really does care about their safety and health is why you could have predicted this, but it is a manipulation by the media who have sounded the alarm loudly over a relatively small problem. The problem is not with the tech so much as with adulterated oils. Genuine hemp flower oil or cannabis oils would normally only require a single puff for a dose which should last the consumer for hours. These kids are puffing terrible concoctions mixed with salad oils and glade plug in oils. They might as well be smoking diesel oil or pine-sol.

  • Yeah, like this is the biggest problem there is right now ?!? 😂
    Ban e-cigarettes, yet continue to sell AR-15s ! SMDH !
    Is it because the e-cigarette folks don't have a "National Association" that "donates" millions to politicians ? 😂

  • I don't suppose it has anything to do with the fact that e-cigarettes come from China and are made for less than 5 American dollars and sell have a 90% increase for the vendors who can be owned and operated by just about anyone .

  • You know it's because these e-cigarettes are coming from China right ? And probably has the full hardy support of the tobacco companies.. I wonder what their campaign contributions look like lmao.. just weird that they put laws in place that forbid other countries from boycotting America and it's little brother Isaac while simultaneously they are boycotting the part of the world that makes a mint on the production and exporting of everything from A-Z … The hypocrisy makes me frustrated with the fact that 90% can't see the plot a foot here and they swallow the propaganda hook line and sinker

  • Must agree, i vaped to help quit smoking and now do nether, this is just something big tobacco would benefit from, its not going to really help, like putting a band aid in a bullet wound lol.

  • Look at how much smoke is coming out of their nose in their mouth. This is a no-brainer that this stuff is awful and potentially lethal. How this got passed is beyond my knowledge

  • This is non tobacco products only. All the flavors that are offered to the young kids. Don't forget the lies of the big tobacco companies in the 40's and 50's. It is addicting just like cigarette's and it's annoying to be around their billows of smoke.

  • LOL, Gutfeld recently ripped San Francisco for banning the sale of vape materials. Now that his hero Trump announced an intention to ban them, I'll bet Gutfeld suddenly agrees.

  • Don’t band em. If people want to die. That’s their business.Cigarettes booze and pharmaceuticals do the same thing. One is not better than the other.

  • Should only ban vaping in stores and restaurants. Other then that this isn't helping or solving anything except solving why tobacco companies aren't making money.

  • Why stop at vapping only non tabacco? ? Ban all !!
    Even though I am a smoker , if any food product killed as many ppl as tabacco has killed it would be pulled off the shelf!!! Why is tabacco ok to distribute??
    Is it because govt needs the tax $$ from the profits ! Is it because big pharmaceutical needs to keep the sickness alive so they can make profit ???
    We all know this but no one talks about it !! Even as a smoker tabacco should be pulled off the market .
    Why do we not talk about tabacco ??

  • I wish they would do an investigation on what these people that have died and find out exactly what these people are vaping on.

  • Whatever happened to freedom of choice? The govt has already proven they are a disaster when butting into people's own business.

  • If you're going to ban E cigs, which I don't smoke by the but I did smoke cigarets a for 18 years. If you're going to ban them then you need to ban tobacco. Plain and simple. I'm glad the government is actually doing something to promotes the health and well being of people but we need equal justice.

  • Again confusing responsible vape usage with irresponsible experimental mixing. Like confusing fentanyl with Chinese car fentanyl (1000 times stronger) Again miss guided blame

  • Before you respond do a search on the effects of vaping, especially on young teens. We had seen a decrease in smoking and nicotine addiction with young people, now that is all undone due to vaping. There is nothing good and it, it is still nicotine addiction and can cause popcorn lung which has no cure. Research it before you speak. The President is trying to address use under 18 not adults.

  • So let me see if I have this clear, The vaping advocates, had to create the AMERICAN VAPING ASSOCIATION, where they could pull their resources and then write the bribe checks to the senators, to keep the e-cigarettes on the market, I imagine the short term senators like Omar and AOC will be jumping on whatever money they could take in since they’re only be one term senators

  • Even Fox News is omitting the fact that these cases were caused by black/grey market THC cartridges containing Vitamin E acetate. I haven't touched a cigarette in 3 years thanks to my vape, and my doctor even told me at my last physical that my lungs sound better. So I'm calling BS on ALL the media for omitting the part about THC cartridges.

  • I guess the tobacco executives and their sleazy government enablers will have to buy smaller super yachts. Call a waahmbulance. Lol.

  • people dying of drugs being brought in from mexico/china and everyones having a panic attack over vaping….ohhhh its teenagers ahhhhh now they got to pretend they care for the children lol

  • This is the literal definition of a panic and is absolutely ridiculous, all over a handful of deaths that aren't even related to nicotine vaping. Yeah, let's just over-react and outright ban a recreational tool that 10's of millions currently use in this country without waiting for the facts to come in. What could possibly go wrong?

  • I used to say if they legalize marijuana idc if they make tobacco illegal now I question why any person has the right to tell me what I can and cannot have…

  • I believe this isn't about anyone's health. I think it's more about the Tobacco lobbyists who are tied to cigarette companies. Cigarette companies are intimidated by vaping because they know they are losing customers every year to vaping. It's about money, plain and simple.

  • Vitamin E and Coconut Oil was used to Cut these ILLEGAL BOOTLEG THC CARTS not vaping Regular Ejuice. So now ive been vaping 6years NEVER ONCE HAD A LUNG ISSUE IN 6YEARS so Talk to me about the Problems with REPUTABLE VAPE JUICE BRANDS! Another witch hunt and Guess its back to cigs for me. Been a good 6years of Healthful bliss not Hospitalization

  • How much money is the federal and state government losing in taxes when people stop smoking cigarettes and switch to vaping and new smokers like teens who decided to start vaping instead of smoking cigarettes. On average the federal government charges $1dollar tax per pack of cigarettes and state government on average charges $1.73 tax per pack of cigarettes. 6 people may have died from vaping? How many of those 6 people also smoked cigarettes or used to smoke cigarettes? And 1300 people on average a day die from smoking cigarettes so why not ban cigarettes? Oh yeah, $$$$$$$$😤

  • Bad idea. If you want to vape then do so. I smoke but would never vape. My choice not the governments, local, state, federal.

  • I smoke myself, and I know it's bad. I do think vaping is also harmful. As much as I smoke, I wouldn't be against a nicotine ban in general. There is nothing posative and it changes your life. There are so many problems in our life, we need to work together and solve them. We don't have to carry out ancestors mistakes, we can change and create world peace. We are born into a slaved society, why are our lifes already condemned with money and greed. If everyone had the free will to live their life, all of the negative ones would stand out. Stop supporting or letting this wickedness spread. You are all beautiful, you can make things right, no one's opinion should impact your life, free yourself from this bondage!!!! Wake up!!!

  • 10,8 Million of people that vape in the USA. Not a smart move from Trump. They say "six confirmed deaths", that is nothing! Many more die annually from alcohol related problems and smoking. Are they going to ban flavoured alcohol drinks? Very very stupid move.

  • Thank you mister president, for this next step in banning dangerous drugs. You should also have a look at cannabis and alcohol. People should not be using these things, the bible forbids it and it destroys many lives. Some of your base may not like it, but it has to be done and ultimately they will see the wrongs of their actions.

  • Well it is the user's fault for getting injured or dying from their foolishness. We don't want people like that.

  • My Name is Israel Ortega Cruz (IOC). I need all the the help I can get to go against AOC. IOC vs AOC for Americas Future! @IOCforcongress.
