Report shows failed US FDA control of E-cigarette marketing

December 2021 E-cigarette Report: Flavored E-cigarette products remain widely available in the US three months after the court-ordered deadline for FDA to rule on marketing applications.

“Retail assessments were conducted in 43 stores in eight cities across the US… These stores included 28 gas stations or convenience stores and 15 vape/tobacco shops… Store assessments documented the availability of top-selling e-cigarette brands, including Juul, Vuse, NJOY, blu, Puff Bar and Bidi, as well as other disposable e-cigarettes and e-liquids.”

Comment: These findings illustrate how inadequate government regulation of e-cigarettes allows the purchase and use of e-cigarette products that threaten health.
