The ban came after a rash of vaping-related lung diseases in the fall and an increase in teens’ usage of the devices. From 2017 to 2019 vaping had doubled among eighth-, 10th- and 12th-graders.
Every U.S. state and the District of Columbia have reported the vaping-related lung disease, or EVALI. Sixty people died from the illness while others still suffer the damage left behind, NBC News reported.
Makers of vape products will have to apply to the Food and Drug Administration to be permitted to sell any vaping item. That deadline is May 12, NBC News reported.
