New York - U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer is concerned about teenagers' growing addiction to e-cigarettes and is calling for a crackdown to ban kid-friendly e-cig flavors.
Standing with New York kids who say they've become addicted to e-cigs, Schumer specifically blasted the manufacturers of "Juul" which makes kid-friendly flavors of nicotine-laced liquid in its e-cigs such as creme brulee, mango and fruit medley.
He says e-cigarette use among middle and high school students has more than tripled between 2011 and 2016. Schumer wants the Food and Drug Administration to use its nicotine-regulating powers to ban flavors attractive to teenagers.
