FDA faces important decisions on regulation of e-cigarettes

Could the risks be ameliorated by changes in engineering? Regulatory concerns go beyond the chemical background of the product. Even if e-cigarettes are shown to be less toxic than cigarettes, there are social implications to consider, the authors pointed out.

Nonsmokers may start smoking e-cigarettes before moving on to real ones, and the simultaneous use of both products could postpone or entirely hinder a smoker’s quitting efforts. Furthermore, the FDA must decide how marketing should be regulated in the context of potential benefits and population risks.

Electronic Cigarette Users Unite to Send a Powerful Message to MEPs

E-cigarette techology smoking hot while cities struggle with regulations

Some of the store owners have put samples out not realizing they needed a permit. Among the stores Lorillards representatives have visited is John Nguyens sliver of a corner shop, called Maria Store, in Dorchester. More than two dozen types of lottery tickets, candy, and condoms line the wall behind Nguyens counter. There are cigarettes too, though there are few takers these days. But Nguyen said he is hoping the city permit he recently received to sell e-cigarettes, as they are popularly known, may add some sizzle to his otherwise lackluster sales.
