The Food and Drug Administration is considering banning online e-cigarette sales, Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said Tuesday. It’s “on the table” and is something the agency is “very clearly looking at it,” Gottlieb said in Washington during a panel discussion on vaping hosted by Axios.

e-cigarettes can’t come at the cost of addicting the entire new generation to nicotine

FDA has taken the position that e-cigarettes are a less harmful alternative for adult smokers who can’t or don’t want to quit smoking conventional cigarettes. Nonetheless, Gottlieb has mentioned that can’t come at the cost of addicting the entire new generation to nicotine as vaping rises in popularity with teens.

Over the past year, the number of high school students who have used e-cigarettes during the previous 30 days has skyrocketed by about 75 percent, as suggested by preliminary data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s annual National Youth Tobacco Survey. This is an “epidemic” catastrophe.
