Trump Says US to Raise Legal Age for Vaping, May Limit Flavors

Josh Wingrove, BloombergPublished 10:53 a.m. ET Nov. 8, 2019 | Updated 10:59 a.m. ET Nov. 8, 2019

President Donald Trump said Friday he wants to raise the legal age for vaping as the industry comes under fire for targeting youth and questions emerge over the health impacts of e-cigarettes.

Trump, speaking to reporters as he left the White House, said the U.S. would announce a plan next week that would likely raise the legal age to 21 years old. He added that the administration is also looking at limiting various flavors the industry offers, some of which have targeted young users.

"We’re going to be raising the age," Trump said.

1. Age limits won't do much aside from make a few aged handwringers feel better.

Limiting the types of fluid available will drive people to the black market, which is what got people sick in the first place.

Classic story of poorly-thought-out actions producing the opposite of the desired effect.

2. Just like yesterday's news regarding the animal cruelty legislation, the Fed should not be involved

This is clearly a responsibility of the states.
