WASHINGTON – The Food and Drug Administration plans to ban the sale of most aromatised e-cigarettes in retail stores and service stations around the country in reducing the popularity of young steam.
The agency also intends to demand age-related online shopping measures to ensure that minors are unable to buy flavor.
F.D. Officials have tested measures to try to curb the use of seasoned e-cigarettes among teenagers. The senior official said that the details of the plan would be announced next week and that menthol and mint flavorings would be exempt from the restrictions. F.D.A. stopped with menthol flavorings in the ban on stealing, partly worried that some users would switch to traditional menthol tobacco stalls.
In a recent interview that preceded this plan, Commission Director Scott Gottlieb stated that he considered the harmful public health problem free of youth.
"In order for children to close the ramp in electronic cigarettes, we need to put in the adult speed pits," Dr. Gottlieb said.
Tobacco companies have fought e-cigarette cuts by saying that they are not meant for young people but for adults who need them to move tobacco products. But healthcare advocates refer to different tastes, such as cans and waffles, packs and young people, rocket popsicle and unicorn, and fruity flavors such as mango.
Dr. Gottlieb has called attacks on seasoned products as a "regrettable compromise" because they can restrict alternatives to adults who are trying to quit smoking. But he also said that parents should consider the use of electronic cigarettes for their children as a serious health threat.
"I think there is an understanding that e-cigarettes are a safer option for kids," he said, "but it can lead to lifelong dependence, and some of the percentages will go to burning products."
Office plans were previously reported by the Washington Post.
F.D.A's assassination began earlier this year when young people trembled with regard to the epidemic and the popularity of such devices has risen.
Juul, blockbuster launch has been the primary goal of agency regulators, regulators and worried parents because of its dominant market share. Its device resembles a flash drive, and young people have had a great interest ever since it was introduced.
Dr Gottlieb focused on Juuli and several other major manufacturers of e-cigarettes in September, warning them to stop marketing for teenagers or to deny the risk. He sets a 60-day deadline for large companies to show that he can keep his device away from minors and that the schedule will end this weekend.
At the same time, F.D.A. also warned 1100 retailers to stop selling equipment to minors and to grant some fines.

Juul, which has over 70 percent of the country's e-cigar market and has come to many high schools and middle schools, has brought thousands of pages to marketing documents and related materials. But regulators who were unhappy then visited San Francisco's headquarters in September and grabbed more.
The other four products that represented the 60-day deadline were RJR Vapor Co.'s Vuse, Imperial Brands Blue and Logic. No company responded to an immediate request to comment.
RJR, Imperial and Altria are all the major tobacco companies that, together with other grapes in the industry, have kept e-cigarettes decisive for survival now when smoking has dropped to the lowest levels in the United States.
In the new report, the Center for Prevention and Control said smoking cigarettes in the United States dropped by about 14 percent in adults in 2017. It is a 67 percent decline since 1965 when the national health survey began to monitor smoking rates.
In a statement last week, Dr. Gottlieb noted that some of the companies he had with him seemed to support the minimum age of tobacco products sales to 21 years.
Last year Dr. Gottlieb gave e-cigarette manufacturers five years to meet standards that show their products as a safe alternative to tobacco products. The Agency is also considering nicotine reduction in cigarettes, although some companies have questioned FD.A. have to set stricter limits.
