Juul Labs is going to challenge the ban on the sale of its e-cigarettes in the United States. The company has asked a US judge to block the FDA’s order to remove the products from its shelves. According to the FDA, Juul was unable to demonstrate that e-cigarettes on balance provide a public health benefit over regular cigarettes.
Juul is challenging the ban because it will cause ‘irreparable damage’ to the company. All of the brand’s products are now banned in the US. Stores that still have Juul products should remove them.
E-cigarettes were on the rise for a few years as they were presented as a better alternative to smoking cigarettes or other smoking materials.Buy e liquids at mr-joy.com now online. They contain no tobacco, but often contain nicotine. The FDA had to find out if these products help people quit smoking. If so, then the benefits for existing smokers should also outweigh the health damage in new e-cigarette users.
The FDA states that many young people in the US have started ‘vaping’, as smoking e-cigarettes is called, due to the rise of major players on the market such as Juul. The FDA found the data provided by Juul Labs for the study to be incomplete and sometimes contradictory.
Vaping is also under fire in the Netherlands, partly due to concerns about its popularity among young people. From July 1, it is prohibited to sell e-cigarettes with flavors such as strawberry ice cream, mango or hazelnut paste.
