A federal appeals court halted the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) ban on the sale of Juul e-cigarettes.
Joe Biden’s FDA on Thursday ordered Juul to stop selling e-cigarettes and four types of pods.
Biden is waging war on the cigarette and e-cigarette industry for no reason.
These are the same people who are handing out crack pipes to addicts for free.

Juul took the fight to court last week and a federal appeals court on Friday temporarily halted the FDA’s ban.
“FDA’s decision is arbitrary and capricious and lacks substantial evidence,” Juul said in its court filing last week, according to the Wall Street Journal.
CBS News reported:
A federal court on Friday granted a request by Juul Labs to temporarily block an order by the Food and Drug Administration to stop selling its electronic cigarettes in the U.S.
The e-cigarette maker had asked the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit to stay what it calls an “extraordinary and unlawful action” by the FDA that would require it to immediately halt its business. The company, which is partly owned by tobacco giant Altria, filed an emergency motion with the appeals court as it prepares to appeal the FDA’s decision.
To stay on the market, companies must show that their e-cigarettes benefit public health. In practice, that means proving that adult smokers who use them are likely to quit or reduce their smoking, while teens are unlikely to get hooked on them.
The FDA said Juul’s application left regulators with significant questions and didn’t include enough information to evaluate any potential health risks. Juul said it submitted enough information and data to address all issues raised. The company said the FDA refused its request to put its order on hold to avoid a massive disruption to its business.
