Many want tighter regulations on e-cigarettes

By Rebecca Lewis. CREATED Aug 9, 2014

Attorney generals in 29 states have rallied to push the FDA into enforcing tighter regulations to protect young people from nicotine addiction.

On Friday, the FDA closed its comment period for proposed rule making on e-cigarettes.

Supporters want the FDA to prohibit flavors other than tobacco and menthol.

They also want advertising and marketing restrictions on e-cigarettes, similar to those enforced for regular cigarettes.
