On the Wednesday night edition of his Fox News show, Sean Hannity promised to defy the law and proudly vape his e-cig live on air in a segment discussing a possible FDA ban on Juul products.
According to the DailyWire, Hannity was responding to an on-air report — delivered Wednesday by fellow Fox News host Trace Gallagher — about President Joe Biden’s push to limit both traditional cigarettes and vaping products. A Wall Street Journal report published earlier in the day indicated an imminent move from the FDA to remove Juul vaping products from the market — and Hannity, a Juul user himself, was not impressed.
Reporter Trace Gallagher told Hannity during the segment: ‘Juul has been trying to get on the right side of regulators by limiting its marketing and banning mango, mint, other sweet flavors. The company even suggested a vaping device that can only be unlocked if you’re 21.’
He noted that while Juul has the right to appeal a ban, those appeals can take a long time and are expensive.
That’s when Hannity chimed in to say: ‘They ban it, and I’ll do it live on TV and they can come and arrest me. How’s that?;
The ban forbids the sale of Juul products but does not ban personal use of the product.
