Best and worst case scenarios for new fDA action plan https://ift.tt/2RHKSqg

FDA Commissioner Gottlieb has announced a new action plan superseding the current action plan concerning e-cigarettes just last summer. The FDA met with the manufacturers of cartridge/pod systems before making releasing his statement.

JUUL has been meme'd into being the face of nicotine addiction among "the youth" by essentially everyone from the politicians, journalists, nicotine prohibitionists, weirdo activists, wall street, Big Tobacco, and even the FDA themselves.

The companies acknowledged the role that flavored e-cigarette products play in appealing to kids, as well as the role that flavored e-cigarettes can also play in helping adult smokers quit. On this point, their proposals at the meetings reflected a range of ideas: for instance, that the FDA restrict distribution of certain flavored products to channels with enhanced age verification processes. Or that the agency require certain products that are more appealing to kids to come off the market until these products receive premarket authorization from the agency.

Some possible scenarios:

  • Nicotine Restriction
  • Flavor Ban – Partial (effecting pods) / complete (effecting entire market)
  • Pulling certain products off the market – possibly JUUL
  • Restrict sales to outlets with strong age verification such as pharmacies or B&M
  • raising legal age to purchase nicotine to 21
  • issue industry wide manufacturing guidelines

E-cigarettes aren't going to be banned since the industry is too big now but the landscape could change significantly to oust smaller and new players.

The FDA seems particularly vulnerable to pressure from the media so expect some action that will restrict flavors or JUUL in particular.
