As of today, e-cigarette makers must get FDA product approval

As of today, e-cigarette makers must get FDA product approval

"If we do not succeed in changing the FDA's arbitrary predicate date of February 15, 2007, the vapor industry will shrink to nearly nothing beginning August 8, 2018". Under the new rules, vendors are banned from selling e-cigarettes to minors.

Parents and teenagers listen up... as of today, no one under the age of 18 can buy hookah tobacco, cigars or e-cigarettes, either online or in person. We believe by restricting youth access to additional tobacco products such as cigars, hookah, and e-cigarettes and by scientifically reviewing these products, we will reduce the public health toll of tobacco use, which remains the leading cause of preventable disease and death in the country and the world - and keep our kids tobacco-free. E-cigarette companies have about a year after they apply to continue to sell their products as they wait for applications to be processed. Shops will no longer be allowed to give free samples to any customers and they won't be allowed to sell to anyone under the age of 18.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration, which announced the regulations in May, will allow e-cigarette devices introduced before the regulations came into force to be sold for up to three years while companies apply and await regulatory review. With the new ruling, the FDA will require manufacturers to register with the agency and place warning labels on packages.

"If we could identify early who would still be using e-cigs six months from now, we could intervene at that early stage", Bold said.

Youth who continue to use e-cigarettes tend to cite low cost and desire to quit smoking as reasons for vaping, according to a study by Yale researchers published online August 8 in the journal Pediatrics.

The battery-powered devices heat a liquid nicotine solution that turns into a vapor users can inhale.

In 2009, the President signed the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act into law, giving FDA the authority to regulate cigarettes, cigarette tobacco, roll-your-own tobacco, and smokeless tobacco. "These new regulations create an enormously cost-prohibitive regulatory process for manufacturers to market their products to adult smokers and vapers", crippling a "multi-billion job-creating industry". Government surveys have shown that youth use of e-cigarettes has skyrocketed and now far exceeds youth use of regular cigarettes.
