Schumer calls for feds to crack down on dangerous counterfeit vape pods from China

Sen. Chuck Schumer wants the federal government to crack down on a new kind of Chinese knock-off: e-cigarettes. The Senate minority leader earlier this year called for the Food and Drug Administration to take a hard line on American e-cigarette companies that promote kid-friendly vape flavors like “juice box” and “candy cane.” He said Chinese manufacturers have since flooded the country’s convenience stores with counterfeit and potentially dangerous vape pods. “I have to give the FDA credit, they did a very good job telling American manufacturers you can’t do this,” said Schumer. “But the Chinese don’t care. Like in so … Continue reading Schumer calls for feds to crack down on dangerous counterfeit vape pods from China

The Federal Government’s War on Vaping Comes to New York

In January, I wrote about the federal government’s war on vaping for Observer, because I treasure freedom and don’t think the federal government should be in the business of interfering in the activities of consenting adults. Now, comes the State of New York to join the war on vaping with an attempt to ban flavored e-cigarettes. This is part of an attempt to kill the industry with a death by a thousand regulations. Advocates for vaping recognize that New York is restricting access of consenting adults for no rational reason. On March 1, WIVB quoted Brian Ellis, vice president of Yeti Vape stores, as saying, … Continue reading The Federal Government’s War on Vaping Comes to New York

Juul will face an uphill battle to ‘ever’ get its product FDA-approved as a quit aid, says former agency commissioner

Former Food and Drug Administration (FDA) commissioner Scott Gottlieb expressed doubt that the scandal-laden Juul will ‘ever’ get approval from the agency he once headed up in a Friday interview. ‘Juul is in a hard spot to ever get their product approved,’ he said on a CNBC segment Friday. After coming under fire dragging its heals on regulating e-cigarettes, the FDA proposed a regulatory pathway to market with a tight timeline for the products earlier this month. But, before stepping down, Gottlieb launched a veritable war against Juul, whose slim, trendy devices and ad campaigns he – and other health officials – … Continue reading Juul will face an uphill battle to ‘ever’ get its product FDA-approved as a quit aid, says former agency commissioner

Juul faces House investigation over teen e-cigarette use

Juul is facing even more heat over concerns that it’s contributing to teen vaping. The House Subcommittee on Economic and Consumer Policy has opened an investigation into the “youth e-cigarette epidemic” that could determine if Juul had marketed its e-cigarettes to kids. Committee Chairman Raja Krishnamoorthi has asked the company to hand over any documents from 2013 onward that touch on related parts of its advertising and social media strategies, including the impact of ads on children and its awareness of under-18 social network followers. The request also covers less explicitly youth-oriented figures, such as Juul-related data on clinical trials to quit smoking. … Continue reading Juul faces House investigation over teen e-cigarette use

E-Cigarette Explodes In Teen’s Mouth, Shattering His Jaw

ELY, Nev. (CBS Local) — A Nevada teenager was left with a shattered jaw and broken teeth after the vape pen he was using exploded in his face. 17-year-old Austin, who lives in rural Ely, was rushed by his mother, Kailani Burton, to the nearest trauma center after the explosion occurred. “He was bleeding really bad,” Burton told The New York Times. “It looked like a hole in his chin.” Five excruciating hours and some 250 miles later, they finally arrived at Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah. “I was so worried driving. I almost hit a wild horse,” Burton … Continue reading E-Cigarette Explodes In Teen’s Mouth, Shattering His Jaw
