FDA Youth Tobacco Prevention Plan holds JUUL, tobacco retailers accountable

FDA cracks down on easy-to-hide Juul e-cigarettes to stop teens sneaking them into schools FDA chief Scott Gottlieb warns companies not to sell Juul e-cigarettes to minors

Fourth, we are planning additional enforcement actions focused on companies that we think are marketing products in ways that are misleading to kids.

E-cigarettes maker Juul Labs Inc. plans to back efforts to raise the minimum age of buying tobacco products and spend at least $30 million on measures that could help keep its items away from minors. "The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, Truth Initiative, American Academy of Pediatrics, American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, American Heart Association and American Lung Association sent a letter to Gottlieb warning that progress against smoking is "at serious risk of being reversed" because of the agency's failure to take action against products that appeal to youth", reports Laurie McGinley for the Washington Post.

"Juul has become a teen status symbol and a growing problem in USA schools".

"At the same time, we are committed to deterring young people, as well as adults who do not now smoke, from using our products".

The nicotine in the e-cigarettes also had addictive components and can lead to other tobacco use. The company said it wants to help combat underage use and maintains their product is meant to be an alternative for adult smokers.

Two New Jersey vape shops were warned about selling e-cigarettes - specifically the popular Juul brand - to minors as part of a nationwide crackdown by the federal government to stop sales to children and teens. The company, one of the most popular sellers of such products in the USA, also said it would spend money over the next three years to fund independent research, youth and parent education, and. In addition, the agency has contacted eBay regarding concerns over listings for Juul products on its website, and it is also taking steps to contact manufacturers directly, "and hold them accountable", said Gottlieb.

"A lot of people are like, 'Yo, let me hit your Juul.' They will be like, 'Oh, who has one?' And they pass them around", Eddie said.

The documents requested include information on its product marketing, research on the health, toxicological, behavioral, or physiological effects of the products, as well as youth initiation and use. But we must all recognize that more needs to be done. We share the belief that these products should never be marketed to, sold to, or used by kids - and we need to make every effort to prevent kids from getting hooked on nicotine. These complaints may ban retailers from selling tobacco products for a specified length of time. A full-scale e-cigarette prevention effort under "The Real Cost" brand umbrella is planned for a September launch.

In answer to these campaigns, the administration will design its own science-based campaigns that will educate the youth about the dangers of tobacco and e-cigarettes. It aims to devise product standard guidelines that will cover e-cigarettes, including exploding batteries and accidental ingestion. Ultimately, our work on tobacco and nicotine regulation is aimed at achieving the greatest public health benefit. But we've got to step in to protect our kids. The San Francisco-based firm offers a number of products designed for tobacco as an alternative to ordinary cigarettes, including e-cigarettes and vaporizers. The senators urged FDA to end the delay and begin regulation and review of e-cigarette products now.

"America's youth should not be using tobacco products", Health and Human ServicesSecretary Alex Azar said in a statement. But the agency made a decision to delay regulations until 2022 as part of a plan to overhaul tobacco regulations.
