Latest National Youth Tobacco Survey Shows Decline in Usage


Looking ahead, the FDA is evaluating all premarket tobacco applications (PMTAs) that it received by the Sept. 9, 2020 deadline as it determines which e-cigarette products should remain on the market.

“FDA will only authorize these e-cigarette products if the science proves that, for example, their marketing is appropriate for the protection of public health. FDA will also continue to enforce the new minimum age of 21 to purchase tobacco products. In addition, while most of these FDA activities are aimed at curbing youth e-cigarette use, FDA will continue to consider and take appropriate actions based on the latest findings about youth use of all tobacco products,” the agency stated in its review of the NYTS survey results.
