The U.S. Federal Drug Administration (FDA) finally proposed regulations that will cover e-cigarettes as a tobacco product. Also covered are cigars, pipe and water pipe tobacco along with dissolvable tobacco products and nicotine gels. The regulations would ban sales to minors and require photo identification to purchase. This is a huge step for the FDA. There is a 75 day public comment period and a 24 month time frame for companies to apply for product approval.
PositiveTip: Lend your voice wherever possible to support these regulations.
