Trump says considering ban on flavoured vaping products

Donald Trump on Wednesday announced his administration was considering a ban on flavored vaping products, amid a growing outbreak of severe lung disease linked to e-cigarette use that has claimed six lives. Authorities may well have to do something strong about it, the president told reporters at the White House, where he was accompanied by Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar and acting Food and Drug Administration head Norman Sharpless. Trump added that First Lady Melania Trump had been involved in the discussions because: She s got a son ... she feels very strongly about it. Azar, whose agency oversees the FDA, said it would be several weeks before guidance would go out on flavoured e-cigarettes. The FDA took over regulatory authority for electronic nicotine delivery systems, including e-cigarettes, in 2016, and has the power to issue recalls. In addition to six deaths, more than 450 people who reported vaping either nicotine, cannabis products or both have fallen ill .
