FDA Announces Rules Restricting E-cigarettes And Cigars

As electronic cigarettes soar in popularity, the U.S. government is proposing historic rules Thursday to ban their sale to minors and require warning labels as well as federal approval. FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg said, "This is an important moment for consumer protection," noting tobacco remains "the leading cause of death and disease in this country." Three years after saying it would regulate e-cigarettes, the Food and Drug Administration is moving to control not only these battery-powered devices but also cigars, pipe tobacco, water pipes and dissolvable tobacco products. Currently, the FDA regulates cigarettes, roll-your-own tobacco and smokeless products such as snuff.
