Anti-Vaping Congressman Shares More Misinformation About Vaping

Date:

Ignoring all the scientific data indicating the effectivity of e-cigs as smoking cessation tools, Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi (D–Ill.), says ‘there’s simply no evidence’ that e-cigarettes can help smokers quit.

Last year, Raja Krishnamoorthi sent a letter to the former US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Commissioner, Dr. Stephen Hahn, urging him to clear the market of all e-cigarettes for the duration of the coronavirus crisis.

The letter based its arguments on data suggesting that vaping may increase one’s risk of contracting Covid-19 and suffering symptoms. “This is true in vapers as young as 13, which is particularly concerning, given that young people are increasingly driving the spread of COVID-19, threatening the health and safety of Americans of all ages,” read the letter.

Earlier this year, the Congressman reintroduced the END ENDS Act which proposed a cap on nicotine concentrations in vapes switch the aim of combating teen vaping.

Krishnamoorthi, a Democrat representing the 8th Congressional District of Illinois, said that he is continuing his work to end the youth vaping epidemic by advocating for legislation like the END ENDS Act (also known as the Ending Nicotine Dependence From Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems Act).
