The minimum age to purchase vaping products is raised to 21 in Iowa
In Iowa, the local governor recently signed a bill into law to raise the legal age to purchase tobacco and vaping products to 21. The Iowa Senate passed this bill in March. However, the Iowa House was delayed from taking up the bill until June because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Jerilyn Oshel, Iowa Department of Public Health Tobacco Use Prevention and Control Division Director, said:
“This law brings Iowa into alignment with the federal Tobacco 21 bill, which was signed into law in December 2019.”
According to the press release, under this law, supplying or selling vape and tobacco products to someone under age 21 is illegal. And it is also illegal for people under age 21 to purchase or attempt to buy the products.
FDA accepts applications from Premarket for Leap and Leap Go
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) sent acceptance and filing letters for its Leap and Leap Go products to the E-Alternative Solutions (EAS).
At present, the EAS is in the substantive review phase of the Premarket Tobacco Product Application (PMTA) process. If successful, then the FDA’s Leap and Leap Go products will be authorized to continue its marketing and sale.
The vice president, general counsel and chief compliance officer at EAS, Chris Howard, said:
“The substantive review is where our months of hard work assembling more than 100,000 pages of evidence will pay off in supporting our proposition that the Leap and Leap Go products are appropriate for the protection of public health.”
“We are looking forward to continued collaboration with [the] FDA in the weeks and months to come and remain optimistic that the PMTA process will result in marketing orders.”
