The FDA also will introduce stricter age-verification requirements for online sales of e-cigarettes. The agency threatened in September to ban Juul and four other leading e-cigarette products unless their makers took steps to prevent use by minors. E-cigarette products represent a small share of revenue for major tobacco companies, whereas Juul’s business is built entirely on the vaping devices. The company also said it would restrict flavors for its other e-cigarette products to tobacco, menthol and mint. Some focus on the potential for the products to shift lifelong smokers onto less harmful nicotine products, while others fear they risk drawing a new generation into nicotine addiction.
