States Dash to Regulate E-Cigarettes

Posted on

The Wall Street Journal reports on the increasing moment to regulate electronic smoking devices by states and local officials as the Food and Drug Administration continues to figure out how to regulate the rapidly accelerating use of electronic cigarettes.

State and local officials began introducing laws to regulate e-cigarettes around 2010. More than 40 states have since banned e-cigarette sales to minors. More than 100 cities have banned e-cigarette smoking indoors, including Los Angeles, New York and Chicago.
