Been there done that. My Senator is the Dems Whip and wrote his own bill to ban flavors for the safety of the children. All I get back from his office is his closed minded rebuttal from an aid.
Let’s hope the Republicans in the Senate have more common sense. If the market was left to it’s self in a decade combustible cigarettes would be a thing of the past.

The response from my state’s senator:

Dear Ms. Anderson:
Thank you for your correspondence regarding e-cigarette regulations. As your voice in Washington, I appreciate being made aware of your views.
As you are aware, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is responsible for developing regulations and guidelines that govern the e-cigarette industry. In August 2016, the FDA released a set of compliance guidelines which required all electronic nicotine delivery system (ENDS) products to file premarket tobacco product applications with the FDA within two years.
In recent months, data from the National Youth Tobacco Survey found that children make up roughly 38 percent of e-cigarette users operating in our society today. Reports also reveal the increase of our nation’s youth population and e-cigarette usage is correlated to non-tobacco flavored e-cigarette products in the market.
As a direct response to the recent influx of youth e-cigarette usage, in September 2019 President Trump announced plans to halt the sales of flavored e-cigarettes The Trump administration’s plan directs the FDA to develop guidelines that address non-tobacco-flavored e-cigarette products that currently lack premarket authorization.
I look forward to working with the Trump administration as policies develop relating to the e-cigarette industry. Should legislation regarding e-cigarettes come to the Senate floor for a vote, please know I will keep your thoughts in mind.
Sincerely,
James M. Inhofe
United States Senator
