Pres. Trump suggests some flavored vapes may be pulled from market

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Donald Trump says the federal government will soon announce a new strategy to tackle underage vaping, promising, "We're going to protect our families, we're going to protect our children, and we're going to protect the industry."

Trump was vague about what the plan would entail but suggested "certain flavors" in cartridge-based e-cigarettes would be taken off the market "for a period of time."

Beginning in May, All e-cigarettes will need to undergo FDA review.

Only those that can demonstrate a benefit for U.S. public health will be permitted to stay on the market.
