    Exclamation Trump administration announces it intends to ban flavored vaping products

    Because prohibition works..


    The Trump administration is preparing to take action amid a rush of deaths linked to vaping.

    After a meeting with President Trump and FDA commissioner Norman Sharpless on Wednesday, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar announced that the FDA would soon issue regulations that would let it force flavored e-cigarette products off the shelves. The announcement doesn't signal a full ban just yet, but it does come precisely a year after the FDA declared teenage e-cigarette use an "epidemic," and just hours after a sixth death linked to e-cigarette use was reported.

    Trump hinted at regulatory action after the Wednesday meeting, calling vaping a "problem," namely for "children." Azar followed that up with a statement, saying "we intend to clear the market of flavored e-cigarettes" and that the FDA is finalizing plans to do so. As CBS News' Kathryn Watson reports, tobacco companies didn't seem to be expecting the announcement.

    Kind of funny how when prescription drugs are counterfeited and people die, no one even suggests bans...

    Is there a hidden push by big tobacco to hurt vaping? There is more chance of lobbyists behind this than government actually trying to look out for their citizens, even with a heavy handed non freedom way.

    Remember when bypassing states and passing more federal regulations involved Congress in some way or another?

    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    Several tobacco companies got involved in making their own vaping products. I wonder if their intent all along was to make sure some people died from vaping. It's not like people are dying or getting sick from vaping juul, or from many other companies. Why don't we hear who made the vaping products these people used that got them sick?

    I heard there was a report of too much vitamin e in some vaping juice that made all those people sick, not sure which brand. I also heard the deaths were caused by people using juice with synthetic marijuana in it posing as CBD vape juice. Why aren't these companies getting sued?

    I remember GOPers going berserk, talking about impending martial law, etc, every time Obama did something by executive order.

    And I haven't heard the old "pen and phone" meme in a while (in cold storage till next Dem Presidency).
