TUESDAY, Nov. 19, 2019 (American Psychiatric Association)—Consensus Statement: We strongly support President Trump’s proposal, made on September 11, 2019, to swiftly remove all non-tobacco-flavored e-cigarettes, including mint and menthol flavors, from the marketplace both in retail stores and online.
