President Donald Trump plans to ban the sales of flavored e-cigarettes this week. Following 400 cases of vaping lung-illnesses reported in 36 states including six deaths according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Alexis Perez a health educator at the health center for substance abuse says that the action is a good first step but more restrictions need to be put on these vaping companies.
