FDA must close flavored vape loophole

Earlier in my career, I spent a fair amount of professional time working with companies on U.S. Food and Drug Administration compliance. While I worked on the business side not the government side, I recognized then and now how important it is for us to have an agency tasked with protecting consumers from dangerous products. When that agency is functioning properly, that is. Sadly, today’s FDA is falling down on the job when it comes to enforcing its own regulations regarding illicit flavored disposable products, especially products from China.
