Discourage Use Of E-Cigarettes
New regulations will spark more debate about e-cigarettes.
FDA will now regulate e-cigs as tobacco products. This means no sales to anyone under age 18 starting Aug 8, 2016. And manufacturers will have to submit products for FDA review and provide warnings.
This isn't surprising. Teens use e-cigs more than cigarettes...with about 1 in 4 high schoolers "vaping." And there's concern that e-cigs can lead to nicotine dependence or cigarette smoking.
