FDA e-cigarette regulation starts today -- what does it mean, what happens now?

Part 1 of our 3-part series on vaping and what it means for public health.

The Federal Drug Administration's regulations for e-cigarettes go into effect today. The regulations set the legal purchase age for e-cigarettes at 18 and establish an application and approval process for all e-cigarettes and related products.

Health advocates argue these regulations are necessary in order to know what exactly is going into e-cigarettes, while industry and consumer advocates say it will place too high of a burden on manufacturers.

What we ultimately want to get to is a time and a place where tobacco is no longer the leading cause of preventable death in the United States.
Erika Sward, American Lung Association

Most e-liquid manufacturers are not going to be able to navigate the approvals process.
Alex Clark, e-cigarette consumer advocate
