E-cigs, the FDA and your opinion.

A public health focus post at the FDA’s site this past month outlined their plans to regulate the e-cigarette industry.  E-cigs as we know it may be close to changing if we do not speak up and talk about what e-cigs have done for you.  Below is the summary of the proposed rule.

Summary
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is proposing to deem products meeting the statutory definition of “tobacco product,” except accessories of a proposed deemed tobacco product, to be subject to the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the FD&C Act), as amended by the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act (Tobacco Control Act). The Tobacco Control Act provides FDA authority to regulate cigarettes, cigarette tobacco, roll-your-own tobacco, smokeless tobacco, and any other tobacco products that the Agency by regulation deems to be subject to the law. Option 1 of the proposed rule would extend the Agency’s “tobacco product” authorities in the FD&C Act to all other categories of products, except accessories of a proposed deemed tobacco product, that meet the statutory definition of “tobacco product” in the FD&C Act. Option 2 of the proposed rule would extend the Agency’s “tobacco product” authorities to all other categories of products, except premium cigars and the accessories of a proposed deemed tobacco product, that meet the statutory definition of “tobacco product” in the FD&C Act. FDA also is proposing to prohibit the sale of “covered tobacco products” to individuals under the age of 18 and to require the display of health warnings on cigarette tobacco, roll-your own tobacco, and covered tobacco product packages and in advertisements. FDA is taking this action to address the public health concerns associated with the use of tobacco products.
