The Trump administration is banning flavored vapes, except for menthol tobacco. Vape stores will have an exception to sell flavors, but groceries, gas stations, and convenience stores cannot. Public health officials say the move will save many teens from becoming addicted to nicotine—nearly 1 in 4 teens vape according to the CDC. However, vapers say banning flavors will make it harder for adults to quit smoking cigarettes. Prohibition does not work.

Many vapers have come out against the ban. They say the government has no business telling them what to do.

At another level, activists say the ban on flavored vapes doesn't actually address the recent public health problems. The CDC said the health problems were due to the illicit THC cartridge market. Suppliers were using substances to cut the THC oil in order to raise profits — those substances were the ultimate cause of health problems in patients. 

Banning flavored vapes does nothing to address these issues. In fact, it could drive people to the black market, further putting their health at risk.

Some say the flavored vape ban doesn't go far enough. By allowing vape stores to continue selling flavored products, teens will still ultimately have access to highly addictive flavored products. The fact that 1 in 4 teens have tried vaping in the past 30 days should be more than enough for the government to take action and prevent an entire generation from becoming addicted.

If adults want to quit smoking, they can quit smoking using tobacco or menthol flavors. There's no real need for adults to have special fruit or candy flavors.
