The Trump administration may set different rules for vape shops when it unveils expected rules governing e-cigarette flavors, White House adviser Kellyanne Conway said.
Speaking at the White House on Wednesday, Conway drew a line between two groups of flavors — tobacco and menthol on one side, and mint, fruit and all other flavors on the other. The latter group appeals to kids and the White House must address use by minors, she said. She also said the Department of Health and Human Services has jurisdiction over e-cigarettes but not over vaping and vape shops, though the terms are often used interchangeably. The Food and Drug Administration is expected to issue guidance on the policy this week.
