House Speaker Nancy Pelosi touted a bill today that will ban flavored cigarettes.

Citing usage statistics to boost H.R. 2339, Pelosi said, “More than 5.3 million middle-aged— middle school and high school students are using e-cigarettes, more than twice as many as two years ago.

“According to the U.S. Surgeon General, youth e-cigarettes use is an epidemic. The bill provides— uh, protects our children with strong measures preventing marketing to youth under 21 and banning all flavored tobacco products including menthol cigarettes and e-cigarettes,” she said.

“Big Tobacco is just on its usual rampage,” Pelosi claimed. “It uses flavors like gummy bear, bubble gum and cotton to ensnare and addict our children to tobacco.”

She didn’t correct herself after she presumably meant “cotton candy.”

“Ninety-seven percent of youth using e-cigarettes use flavored cigarettes,” she said.

The House will vote on the bill on Friday, according to the speaker.
