Countable says: Follow this link to submit comments on the FDA's vaping proposal.
After what seemed like a million incremental announcements, the Food and Drug Administration formally released its proposal yesterday to restrict the sale of flavored vape products, in the hopes of curbing their popularity among teens.
The big picture is pretty much what we expected: Physical stores must either keep out everyone younger than 18 or keep their e-cigarette supplies in a separate room inaccessible to underage customers. Online retailers must use age-verification tools.
What they're saying:
How it works: The FDA doesn't have direct regulatory authority over convenience stores. Instead, the agency told e-cigarette makers that it could pull their products from the market unless they're sold under these new conditions.
What's next: The public will have 30 days to comment on the draft the FDA released today before it's finalized.
