All banned products must be off the shelves by February 1st
Smoke shops are scrambling to sell their remaining fruit flavored e-cigarette cartridges. The Food and Drug Administration will begin enforcing the ban at the end of January.
The ban does not apply to menthol and tobacco-flavored products, varieties less appealing to youth. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment reports 27 percent of Colorado high school students said that they had vaped in a recent one month period.
“The most popular flavors that were on the market here were raspberry, blueberry, mango. They even have a lot of off brand companies like Z-Pod,” said Jeremy Pierre, a manager at Mile High Pipe and Tobacco.
