US bill limits pods to 20mg

1 Mins read

A US congressman has introduced a bill that would limit e-cigarette pods to 20mg of nicotine

Representative Raja Krishnamoorthi (Illinois) introduced the bill on Monday.

The bill is the ‘END ENDS Act’, which stands for ‘End Nicotine Dependence from Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems Act’.

It will also allow the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to lower the limit even further.

Krishnamoorthi believes this bill will make e-cigarettes “less addictive and appealing” to teenagers.

He hopes this will put an end to the ‘vaping epidemic’ among youngsters in the US.

This limit is in line with current regulation in the UK and European Union.

But it’s a different approach to many other US states which have focused primarily on flavours rather than nicotine content.

Krishnamoorthi said:

“As a concerned parent, I am committed to preventing a new generation of nicotine addicts.”

“Capping the concentration of nicotine in e-cigarettes is integral to ending the youth vaping epidemic by making these products less addictive, less appealing to youth, and less harmful to public health.”
