  1. Unfortunately, individuals inside the FDA are not incentivized to make rapid decisions, even in the face of mounting evidence. This is a long-standing cultural issue within the agency.

  2. These products remain for sale to kids with no age verification, and no signature needed at time of delivery, on eBay and on eliquidstop.com as well as other sites.

    The FDA has not done anything to alter that, more than a year and half after acknowledging Juul product sales on eBay had been a problem.

    At my work for a non-profit, we take screenshots each day of these products that remain accessible to minors. It’s psychotic to allow children easy access to rum, and easy access to highly potent concentrations of nicotine is likewise crazy.
