The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) ordered e-cigarette maker Juul's products off the market, a move that may not have an immediate impact on the cannabis vape industry, but could happen in the future. The Wall Street Journal first reported that as part of an ongoing effort to crack down on youth smoking e-cigarettes, the FDA denied Juul's application to continue selling e-cigarette devices and pre-filled cartridges in menthol and tobacco flavors. the FDA said Juul must stop selling and distributing its e-cigarettes and pull them from the U.S. market. Arnaud Dumas de Rauly, CEO and co-founder of New York-based e-cigarette maker Blinc Group, said the federal illegality of marijuana should temporarily insulate the industry from FDA intervention. But if the FDA really wants to keep consumers safe, then they should regulate and hold atomizer companies to the highest scientific standards, rather than ban products that send them straight back to the black market and only exacerbate the problem.
