The law raises the legal age for purchasing these products from 18 to 21, building on the Governor's efforts to combat health threats from tobacco and e-cigarette products.

Governor Andrew Cuomo has signed the legislation that increases the age for buying tobacco and e-cigarettes in New York State. Conway told the news outlet that HHS had jurisdiction over e-cigarettes, but not vape shops.

Researchers from the Food and Drug Administration and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention analyzed data from the 2019 National Youth Tobacco Survey, which is conducted annually. Almost 1 million youth reported vaping daily, while 1.6 million said they vaped "frequently" on 20 or more days per month.

More than 27 percent of high school students and 10.5 percent of middle school students used e-cigarettes in 2019-placing them at risk for inhibited brain development and future cigarette smoking, according to the joint report. Just 6% of high schoolers reported having smoked a cigarette in the last month - a decrease from last year's survey.

"Spatarella agreed. "The preferences [of teens] for flavors is shifting", she said, with users "'graduating" from candy or fruit flavors to more "grown-up' flavors, such as menthol and mint".

When it became clear that kids were vaping at an "epidemic proportion", the FDA issued more than 1,300 warning letters and civil fines to retailers who illegally sold JUUL and other products to minors in the summer of 2018, according to a press release issued at the time. "Eliminating access to flavored e-cigarettes is a pro-active approach to a growing problem". Suffolk County adopted a law in 2009 banning the sale of e-cigarettes and similar products to persons under the age of 21 and prohibiting their use "in public places where traditional forms of smoking are already disallowed", according to the County Code. A randomly selected third of the more than 42,500 MTF respondents were asked which JUUL flavor they used most often. Of those, mint was by far the most popular.

Juul is the most popular e-cigarette used by USA teenagers - the term "juuling " has become synonymous with the use of e-cigarettes - but it's not the only one.

Mint and mango are the most popular flavors of JUUL e-cigarettes among US teenagers, new research shows.
