About the bill

Should mint, fruit, and candy flavors in e-cigarettes and vaping products be disallowed?

Context

With 27% of high school seniors having vaped in the previous month, many believe a public health crisis is at hand. 14% of high school seniors have only used flavored vaping products, such as candy, fruit, and mint.

In September, President Trump announced that his administration would ban the sale of most flavored e-cigarettes, reportedly due to the influence of his First Lady Melania and daughter Ivanka. But literally the night before the ban was to take effect in early November, Trump changed his mind, citing potential job losses.

As long as Trump remains president, any flavor ban would now presumably have to take effect through Congress.
