House passes bill to ban the sale of flavored e-cigarettes and tobacco products; President Trump's administration opposes the bill, which is unlikely to pass in the Senate.
President Donald Trump's administration opposes the bill, which is unlikely to pass in the Senate.
"As Eric Garner’s mother knows all too well, in New York a single cigarette can become a death sentence,'' Clarke said.
More than 6 million American middle and high school students used some type of tobacco product last year.
"It’s clear the tobacco industry has employed the same tactics that they have used for decades to hook young people on new versions of their products in order to generate new customers that will be addicted for life,'' said Rep. Frank Pallone, D-N-J., the bill's lead sponsor.
Rep. Greg Walden, D-Ore., said he shared Pallone's concern about the epidemic of youth tobacco usage, but he said lawmakers also should address easy access to marijuana. He cited the death of an Oregon man who used an electronic cigarette containing marijuana oil from a legal dispensary.
The bill also may restrict access by adult e-cigarette users to"products that may provide a less harmful alternative" to traditional cigarettes, the White House said.Read more: NBC News
Because why would 45 and his administration, as well as the Repub majority Senate, back a bill that would address a true public health crisis? (And then there's that OTHER public health crisis, but one at a time.) Good! I hope it doesn’t pass. Legalize marijuana and stop the black market THC cartridges that are mainly to blame.
Wasn't Trump one of the first to scream about wanting this type of ban? After years of research and testing about smoking someone comes up with an alternative but somehow can’t help but to put something lethal in it? WTF !!! Vaping helped me quit smoking. But go ahead, ban vaping. Cigarette companies are going to love you. 👏👏👏🙄
Obviously the E-Cigarette lobby hasn’t spread enough money around Congress. Hopefully, Congress keeps regular cigarettes legal. They are healthier. Need one more reason to loathe Republicans & Trump? Lobbyists for the vaping/flavored tobacco products, are major donors to the Trump/GOP campaigns and many of Trump's base are end users. This is a prima facie case of the public good being destroyed by political connivance.
Wasn't trump all for tgis before? Let me guess, he lied again.
