Juul is discontinuing its mint flavor
Researchers for one of the studies wrote in the Journal of the American Medical Association that the findings raised questions about “whether regulations or sales suspensions that exempt mint flavors are optimal strategies” for preventing young people from vaping.“These results are unacceptable and that is why we must reset the vapor category in the U.S. and earn the trust of society by working cooperatively with regulators, Attorneys General, public health officials, and other stakeholders to combat underage use,” Juul CEO KC Crosthwaite said in the statement.

Juul said Thursday it will stop accepting retail and online orders for mint pods in the U.S. after absorbing the recent results of multiple studies, including the 2019 National Youth Tobacco Survey.“These results are unacceptable and that is why we must reset the vapor category in the U.S. and earn the trust of society by working cooperatively with regulators, Attorneys General, public health officials, and other stakeholders to combat underage use," Juul CEO K.C.Juul pledged to abide by the Food and Drug Administration's forthcoming decision on vaping flavors.Juul said last month that it still believed flavored e-cigarettes could play a critical role in "helping adult smokers move away from combustible cigarettes," which cause cancer. .

FDA finalizes enforcement policy on unauthorized flavored cartridge
Under this policy, companies that do not cease manufacture, distribution and sale of unauthorized flavored cartridge-based e-cigarettes (other than tobacco or menthol) within 30 days risk FDA enforcement actions.We will continue to use our full regulatory authority thoughtfully and thoroughly to tackle this alarming crisis that’s affecting children, families, schools and communities,” said FDA Commissioner Stephen M. Hahn, M.D.“Coupled with the recently signed legislation increasing the minimum age of sale of tobacco to 21, we believe this policy balances the urgency with which we must address the public health threat of youth use of e-cigarette products with the potential role that e-cigarettes may play in helping adult smokers transition completely away from combustible tobacco to a potentially less risky form of nicotine delivery.While we expect that responsible members of industry will comply with premarket requirements, we’re ready to take action against any unauthorized e-cigarette products as outlined in our priorities.The final guidance outlining the agency’s enforcement priorities for electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS), such as e-cigarettes and e-liquids, comes as the 2019 National Youth Tobacco Survey (NYTS) results on e-cigarette use show that more than 5 million U.S.
middle and high school students are current e-cigarette users (having used within the last 30 days) – with a majority reporting cartridge-based products as their usual brand.For purposes of this policy, a cartridge or pod is any small, enclosed unit (sealed or unsealed) designed to fit within or operate as part of an ENDS product.The FDA has already accepted and begun review of several premarket applications for flavored ENDS products through the pathway that Congress established in the Tobacco Control Act.The guidance also states that, after May 12, 2020, the FDA intends to also prioritize enforcement against any ENDS products that continue to be sold and for which the manufacturers have not submitted a premarket application.The FDA has demonstrated a deep commitment to taking steps to prevent youth from using and becoming addicted to any tobacco product, including e-cigarettes. .
Discontinued Mint, Mango Juul Pods Were Magic for Quitting
Juul is in trouble—losing money, shedding hundreds of employees, besieged by lawsuits and possibly about to be regulated out of existence by the Trump Administration—because the San Francisco-based company’s product offerings, particularly mint and mango-flavored nicotine-juice pods, are very popular with teenagers.But adult smokers also prefer minty and fruity vapor to blowing tobacco-flavored clouds, according to recently published research—and with attractive flavors, they also stand a much better chance of quitting cigarettes.“The impact of suspending retail sales of flavored Juul pods on adult smokers’ likelihood of quitting should be closely assessed.”.According to the study’s disclosure, the Centre for Substance Abuse Research accepted money from Juul Labs.“Industry-funded articles tend to support the industry position,” Stanton Glantz, a longtime tobacco-industry researcher (and e-cigarette skeptic) at the University of California, San Francisco, told Observer via telephone on Tuesday.“That’s the trouble with Juul,” as Dr. Nancy Rigotti, a physician and tobacco treatment specialist at Harvard Medical School, told the Associated Press earlier this year.“It’s probably the worst for kids, but it might be the best for adult smokers.” In the United States, it’s all about the kids, and if Juul products are yanked from the market entirely, as former Food and Drug Administration (FDA) commissioner Scott Gottlieb suggested on Monday, there are at least some adult smokers doomed to continue their Marlboro habit.
