    U.S. to restrict e-cigarette flavors to fight teenage vaping 'epidemic'

    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration next week will issue a ban on the sale of fruit and candy flavored electronic cigarettes in convenience stores and gas stations, an agency official said, in a move to counter a surge in teenage use of e-cigarettes. The ban means only tobacco, mint and menthol flavors can be sold at these outlets, the agency official said, potentially dealing a major blow to Juul Labs Inc, the San Francisco-based market leader in vape devices. The FDA also will introduce stricter age-verification requirements for online sales of e-cigarettes.

    Japan Tobacco to cut heated tobacco prices in battle with Philip Morris

    Japan Tobacco Inc (2914.T) is set to slash prices on its heated tobacco products early next week after a similar move by bigger rival Philip Morris International Inc (PM.N), signalling increased competition in Japan's nascent market for alternative cigarettes. Japan, where regular e-cigarettes with nicotine-laced liquid are effectively banned, has become the main market for "heat not burn" (HNB) products which emit less smoke and smell less than conventional cigarettes. Tobacco makers initially struggled to keep up with strong demand as they began introducing HNB products in limited Japanese markets a few years ago.
