Joint Letter Urges FDA to Ban Flavored Vapes
US attorneys general from 33 states, including Arizona's Kris Mayes, have written to the FDA calling for a ban on flavored e-cigarettes and stricter regulations targeting teenagers.

According to a report by Cronkite on September 7th, Kris Mayes, the attorney general of Arizona, along with attorney generals from 32 other states, collectively sent a letter to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the United States, urging them to ban the sale of flavored e-cigarettes and vigorously crackdown on marketing strategies that target adolescents.


Meyers, the current Attorney General of Arizona, has sent a letter to the FDA as a warning,"Young people in our country require increased protective measures, such as more barriers, to prevent tobacco use and addiction."


According to statistical data, thousands of teenagers are consistently using e-cigarettes, particularly flavored products. Furthermore, the marketing strategies targeting adolescents are also causing concerns.


Despite the legal age to purchase tobacco products in the United States being 21, teenagers continue to persist in using tobacco products.


In an effort to reduce the appeal of e-cigarettes to young people, several actions have been proposed in a letter to the FDA, including the prohibition of all "non-tobacco flavors" in e-cigarettes, restrictions on nicotine concentration, a ban on disposable e-cigarettes, and stricter regulations on marketing to adolescents.


According to investigations carried out by the FDA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), over 3 million middle and high school students in the United States use tobacco products, with 2.5 million individuals specifically using e-cigarettes, which accounts for more than a quarter of these students. The majority of the e-cigarettes used are disposable e-cigarettes.
