FLAVOURED PODS (EX MENTHOL AND TOBACCO) NOW BANNED IN THE USA
President Donald Trump made the announcement late last week that all flavoured e-cig cartridges (like those used in JUUL and NJOY) would be banned, ending social media speculation of a total flavour ban.

Limiting the flavour ban to pods and cartridge-based closed systems is a result of the FDA’s assessment that these product types are more likely to be used by Youth.
