Republican Utah Sen. Mitt Romney spent Friday afternoon attending a youth vaping discussion at the White House during which he complained about vaping companies marketing a flavor called “unicorn poop” to children.
Though the pro-vaping advocates claimed that “yes” adults do purchase flavored vaping oils, Romney continued to argue that vaping companies sell flavors — including one named “unicorn poop” — to market tobacco products to children.

“They could be selling something on a street corner, that could be horrible,” Trump reportedly argued. “They are going to have a flavor that is poison.”
The event was attended by several pro-vaping advocates, including American Vaping Association President Gregory Conley and NJOY CEO Ryan Nivakoff.
