EXPANDED FDA E-CIGARETTE REGULATION

On May 5, 2016, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a news release declaring the initiation of new regulations over the e-cigarette, cigar, and hookah markets. This new release announces that e-cigarettes will from that point onward be subject to the same authority granted over traditional cigarettes detailed in the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act of 2009.

One new regulation includes: no tobacco products to be sold to persons under the age of 18 years (both in person and online). Additionally, this law will be enforced by requiring age verification by photo ID at the time of purchase. These rules will be applied by August 5, 2016.
