Fox News host Sean Hannity has told Democrat President Joe Biden to go pound sand over a federal ban on vaping by declaring that he is refusing to comply.
Yesterday, Hannity promised to break out his own Juul e-cigarette live on TV, should Biden or Congress succeed in their efforts to ban vape products.
“They ban it, and I’ll do it live on TV and they can come and arrest me,” Hannity declared.
“Now, while the Biden FDA wants people to stop vaping, many Democratic-run cities and states, they have no problem decriminalizing even hard drugs, even as overdose deaths are spiking.”
Today the FDA banned JUUL Labs products.

The FDA issued a statement that said:
“Today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued marketing denial orders (MDOs) to JUUL Labs Inc. for all of their products currently marketed in the United States.
“As a result, the company must stop selling and distributing these products,” the statement said.
“In addition, those currently on the U.S. market must be removed, or risk enforcement action.”
“Today’s action is further progress on the FDA’s commitment to ensuring that all e-cigarette and electronic nicotine delivery system products currently being marketed to consumers meet our public health standards,” said FDA Commissioner Robert M. Califf, M.D.
“The agency has dedicated significant resources to review products from the companies that account for most of the U.S. market.
“We recognize these make up a significant part of the available products and many have played a disproportionate role in the rise in youth vaping.”
