Juul halts store sales of some flavored e-cigarettes

The nation's leading e-cigarette maker is halting store sales of some flavors to discourage the use by kids.

The move by Juul Labs Inc. comes ahead of an expected U.S. government crackdown on underage sales of flavored e-cigarettes.

Juul said it stopped filling store orders yesterday for mango, fruit, crème and cucumber pods and will resume sales only to retailers that scan IDs and take other steps to verify a buyer is at least 21. It said it will continue to sell menthol and mint at stores, and sell all flavors through its website.
