Senator Anwar Releases Statement In Response To FDA Removing Juul Vape Products From Marketplace

Today, State Senator Saud Anwar (D-South Windsor) released the following statement after the Food and Drug Administration issued an order to remove JUUL vape products from the United States marketplace, effectively banning them:

“This is a step in the right direction. JUUL vaping products, and especially the company’s marketing practices, have targeted and hurt children in the past. When we need to remove vapes from the hands of our children to protect their long-term health and growth, orders like these are beneficial for our communities. Flavored vapes pose a significant danger to children and need to be banned. I hope the FDA continues to take this issue seriously and take further action.”
