Juul To Stop Selling Several Flavored Products In The U.S.

Juul Labs, a leading e-cigarette company, announced on Thursday that they will stop selling several flavored products in the United States. Only tobacco, mint and menthol flavors will remain for sale. Juul’s mango, creme, fruit and cucumber flavors have already been removed from the online store, the only place the company sold these products directly to 21-and-up consumers in the United States. It had pulled them from retail locations late last year. However, these flavored pods will continue to be sold abroad.

Juul’s new CEO, K.C. Crosthwaite, said: “We must reset the vapor category by earning the trust of society and working cooperatively with regulators, policymakers, and stakeholders to combat underage use while providing an alternative to adult smokers.”

This latest move comes after the Trump Administration announced the US Food and Drug Administration would issue guidance that would remove flavors from the market, including mint and menthol.

Vice President Pence Announces Turkey’s Agreement To Syria Ceasefire

Vice President Mike Pence announced Thursday that Turkey has agreed to a ceasefire in northern Syria between its forces and their allied rebels and U.S.-backed Syrian Kurds. Pence met with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan earlier on Thursday.

Pence said at a news conference: “It will be a pause in military operation for 120 hours, while the United States facilitates the withdrawal of YPG (the People’s Protection Units) from the affected areas in the safe zone. And once that is completed, Turkey has agreed to a permanent ceasefire and the United States of America will work with Turkey — will work with nations around the world — to make sure peace and stability are the order of the day in this safe zone.”

The United States said in a joint statement with Turkey that the sanctions it recently imposed on Turkish government ministries and officials would be lifted as soon as Turkey’s offensive came to a permanent end.
