    Thoughts on the reports that juul are suspending the sales of all other flavours apart from tobacco and menthol anywhere else other than from their own site, what do we think about this? Think of the children, God dammit

    I would of thought one of the biggest companies in the industry should be fighting for vaping not pandering to the fda, got to keep that cash rolling in though haven't they

    Why fight when you can bend over, stay in the clear and watch all your competition get fucked by the fda, it benefits them more.

    Some benefits are, oh you can only buy that flavour from us now.

    You can't buy it from the companies we've sold it to.

    They don't seem to have a lot of choice, sadly. Strange that a government so anti-BT is so intent on wiping out their main competitor.

    100%

    JUUL are the enemy, they have no interest in fighting for anything other than their own survival by making deals with the FDA. Back when the whole flavours thing was going on they said something along the lines of 'we don't sell gummy bear or bubblegum flavours that are clearly aimed at kids" .... why the fuck would you say that unless you wanted to throw other people under the bus to save yourself?

    The sad thing is that over in the US, "JUULing" among teens is a thing. While I don't agree with the steps they've taken, they were probably the one company that was most under scrutiny by the FDA. They could have used the opportunity to stand up and fight, but as it's been pointed out, why bother? Make more money by keeping flavor selling in-house and please the FDA by regulating and tracking who you are selling to. It's a win-win for JUUL, it's just a massive two-fingers to the rest of the industry, but they have shown previously that they could not give a shit about the success of the industry as a whole, as long as they can continue doing what they're doing.
