Tell the Trump administration to protect kids from nicotine addiction
One in 4 high school students are using e-cigarettes, with damaging consequences for their futures and their health. Vaping often delivers a highly addictive dose of nicotine, which can impact brain development, impair learning and contribute to mood disorders.
Tobacco companies use flavors to target kids. Flavors make it easier for young people to start using tobacco products because they hide the bad taste of tobacco, and make the practice seem harmless. According to the Food and Drug Administration, 70 percent of current youth e-cigarette users said that they used e-cigarettes "because they come in flavors I like."
That's why I'm writing to urge you to follow through on your announcement to take all flavored e-cigarettes off the market, including mint and menthol.
