The White House
Wait, what? Somebody's addiction to something (Matthew 18mark) is more important than somebody suffering and dying from real tobacco smoke illnesses like CANCER? Mom & Pop shops have the step-down levels that help any addicted person to wean themselves at will. They (vape shops) sell 0nic, 0.6nic, 1.2nic… whereas the Juul sells 5.0nic only and they're not 'adults only store' like vape shops are.
Pink woman at (8mark), read the data again that was presented months prior to this meeting. Flavors was 23% , curiosity at 58%, quitting smoking was another reason… but my point is, Flavors are NOT the number 1 reason like she's saying.
Why aren't states enforcing the present age restrictions (18yr)? Why is Juul selling off the rack instead of from behind the counter? …. Ha! Yes! Go get them Gregory! You're saying it right now. (15mark). (My marks are approx). That's right. We're tired of smoking parents, aunts, uncles, neighbors, when they could be smelling like a peach and increasing their health by switching over to vaping.
Epidemic? Matt at 19, I'm sorry, but 'tried it once this month' does not make a user. A user is someone who enjoys their use often, like most every day if not 100x's a day. Please redo your survey and take the 'have you tried an ecig in the last 30 days' off your surveys if you're going to be labeling them as 'users' if they confess to being curious enough to try one once.
Tony & Ryan, spot on too!! TY!! Well said!!
Mr. President!! You are so spot on it almost hurts. TY for saying what we all know to be true. Banning will cause more black markets and black markets can be extremely dangerous.
Matt at the 24mark, why aren't you celebrating how tobacco smoking rates are at an HISTORICAL LOW. Kids are no longer satisfying their curiosity with a cigarette, but instead they are reaching for the 95% safer than tobacco smoke products called eCigs.
Aren't those the same people who kept saying that every year 480,000 smokers die? Now they're saying to go back to smoking so that nobody becomes addicted to the 95% less harmful product that's flavorful plus has adjustable nicotine levels? I don't understand their stance one bit.
Lady in Blue, you don't know how to help them, because you refuse to have sit down learning sessions about the product. Try talking to a good vape shop that can help teach you how to choose lower nic strengths eliquids for those who are addicted, until they're down to zero nicotine. It's not that hard. Most vape shops have a phone and an email.
Wait, what. Didn't the lady in white, at the beginning, express that yes, a lot of the kids are smokers, but that they shouldn't be switching to vaping either. Now the man is starting a brawl by saying that none of the kids are smokers, that they're all just flavor addict vapers.
Wow, Tony, that's a lot of businesses, employees, manufacturers, shippers, etc that will be forced out of a job just for selling 95% safer than tobacco smoke products.
Tony, well said! Don't forget the renters who will forced to the streets for smoking if they go back to smoking because the vape shops closed. Regular job employees will be out of a job too, because the can no longer toke on a 0nic flavor to get them through a rough patch and their employer's insurance company won't insure them bc they vape. This is a horrible snowball affect!
Exactly, Mr. President! Most states already have 18yr age restrictions, why aren't they enforcing them?
I remember years ago, 16 & 17 yr old kids were making videos showing off how they quit smoking with it, and are now happily married to the mother of their child. Minors are sometimes older, more mature, than we give them credit for. (Life has a way of forcing us to mature real quick like sometimes). The word 'minor' doesn't just compose of 12 yr olds lol.
Red polka dot lady, more worried about controlling someone else's behavior than about them dying from cancer, which will happen if they don't switch over to vaping from smoking. SMDH
Pink woman, try talking to a vape shop, instead of yelling at one, about how to wean off nicotine. Vape shops are set up beautifully for weaning off nicotine if that's what the customer desires to do. Learn the ropes, help the kids. It's that simple.
Romney was so off the wall, I couldn't even find a place to begin with him. Good Lawdy.
Wait, what? They want the minors to become accustomed to the tobacco flavor, so that after they quit vaping in time, and have a relapse, they'll think nothing of purchasing a protected pack of cigarettes? Yep, I'm pretty sure I understand that point perfectly.
My apologies for running off at the mouth through this. I even missed a few of the speakers and have to rewatch. Mr. President, you were awesome! Thank you for letting us watch and hear with our own ears.
One last thing. After all is said and done, this is supposed to be America where the parents parent the children and the Govt governs the limited and defined powers that the Constitution outlines for them to do. I believe those powers are mostly limited to Foreign stuff, like Peace, War, Negotiations and commerce (ports). But, then, it's been a few days since rereading the Constitution, I could be wrong.
I HATE MITT ROMNEY'S FACE. HE'S DEFINITELY GOT A PUNCHABLE FACE.
Did you notice when greg conley said most of these people in here are receipts of Bloomberg's 160million dollar monies NO ONE SAID SHIT!!!!
JUUL, YOU REMOVED FLAVORS BECAUSE THATS WHERE THE PROBLEM STARTED WITH YOUR STUPID CARTRIDGES!!! DONT SIT THERE AND TRY AND KISS THE PRESIDENTS ASS YOU SELLOUTS!!! I WISH I WAS IN THAT ROOM I WOULD GO VIRAL
MITT ROMNEY SHUT THE FUCK UP!!!! GOD DAMN I CANT STAND THAT DUDE. The head of JUUL is just sitting there like i started all this with the look on his face.

According to the released cdc data, 320,000 minors use 95% safer than tobacco products called eCigs to stop smoking. That's only a few short of the 480,000 smokers who are expected to die each year from the 95% more harmful tobacco cigarettes. I see why they're in such a PANIC.
Look at creep Romney, such a traitor and a bad Republican. The president is such a great person to even allow that idiot to sit next to him and even be in the same room. Hypocrite !
What bullshit. Why didn’t you ever debate the legality of cigarettes every day from their invention till now?This debate is nothing more than a bunch of politicians trying to figure out how best to make money through added taxation.
I pray that the President listened to the people at this meeting. He seemed to be.. I just don't think he realizes if he doesn't do something to stop States from implementing flavor bans without at least reading the statistics of how safe vaping is this will be a disaster. I don't think he wants people dying, people losing their businesses and jobs. I also pray that he is reading these comments. Vaping is safe Mr. President – it saves lives every day! There are many, many people some you have heard from (not a long enough conversation to totally understand vaping and it's safety) that would be willing to sit down with you and explain why this would cause another Prohibition and people will die. It is scary to me. I've never felt like this before and want to believe he will not go forward with this and reverse the Flavor Ban.
Romney is a Nazi and has no business at that round table.
Here's the result of this meeting. Trump and the FDA "ban" flavors, unless they are in disposable e-cigarettes, which have the highest levels of nicotine. Nice loophole. So Trump can say he "banned the flavors", but the flavors are still on the market and still available, but now they are only available with the highest levels of nicotine 6% per disposable pen. So kids can still get the "rush" because they are getting more nicotine per puff than a cigarette, but now they can't reduce the amount of nicotine if they want to ween themselves off of cigarettes. This is a perfect win for the tobacco industry.
I hope thy take them of the market .
