Vaping and e-cigarette resellers are all on edge with the deaths and illnesses that have reportedly been linked to them. Walgreens, Walmart, Kroger and Rite Aid are only some of the retailers that have decided to pull these products from their shelves. With the developing regulations in a growing number of states and municipalities, businesses are trying to stay out of it as much as possible.
The regulations and bans on flavored e-cigarettes come after over 1,000 lung injuries and 18 deaths related to these products have been reported across the country as of October 1st, according to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC). The Trump Administration prepared to complete a ban on flavored e-cigarettes, with the details still in the works, but will for the most part remove flavored e-cigarettes and nicotine pods from the market, excluding tobacco flavors.
