Big tobacco is an 'assault on the health and well-being of America's children' -Pelosi

Pelosi continued, "Today, Democrats are taking strong action to protect America's children as we pass H.R. 2339: legislation to confront the growing youth tobacco crisis in our nation."

The legislation calls for a ban on flavored e-cigarette liquids in order to curb the youth vaping epidemic. It would also ban online sales of e-cigarettes and require the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to place graphic warnings of the dangers of smoking on cigarette cartons.
