Youth vaping has reached epidemic proportions. This is now the official position of the U.S. Food & Drug Administration—the most powerful public health agency in the western world.
Buckling under relentless pressure directed by anti-vaping public health groups, FDA announced a new enforcement action targeting the top-five companies in vaping.
In its statement FDA’s language is troubling. Using terms such as “epidemic” and “clear and present danger” is reckless and presents the possibility of drastic action, such as revoking one’s liberty to vape.
In this episode of RegWatch we layout FDA’s assertions behind its enforcement action and talk with Professor Donald J. Boudreaux from the F. A. Hayek Program for Advanced Study at George Mason University about the real threat public health poses to individual liberty.
