Juul Halts Sales of Mint-Flavored Pods in U.S.

Juul vaping e-cigarettes

E-cigarette maker Juul announced it will stop selling mint-flavored pods. The company already stopped sales of fruit- and dessert-flavored e-cigarettes, HealthDay reports. Juul will only sell menthol and tobacco flavors.

A study published last week suggests that mint and mango are teens’ preferred flavors for e-cigarettes.

In a statement, the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids said, “Voluntary tobacco industry policies have never worked and are not a substitute for mandatory, industry-wide regulation. We urge the Trump Administration to swiftly implement its plan to have the FDA clear the market of all flavored e-cigarettes, without exception. With over 5 million kids now using e-cigarettes and the youth epidemic getting worse every day, there is no time to waste in eliminating all flavored e-cigarettes.”

How to Talk With Your Kids About Vaping [GUIDE]

Vaping’s popularity exploded seemingly overnight, and it took many parents and families by surprise. Vaping, or Juuling as it is often referred to by teens and young adults (named after a popular vape device called JUUL), is the inhaling and exhaling of an aerosol produced by using a vape device.

    Uh, you forgot to mention that menthol and tobacco are also artificial flavors. As a smoking cessation counselor I urge patients to try non-tobacco flavors so as to learn to dislike tobacco and hopefully lessen their chances of relapsing back to smoking.
    80% of adults who quit smoking thru vaping do so with fruit and other non-tobacco flavors. Why deny them the ability to be smoke-free?
