E-cigarettes contain liquid nicotine that is inhaled by a user in the form of a vapor. Most run by a battery, and their health risks are not certain.
The Food and Drug Administration is looking to impose new regulations for obtaining e-cigarettes.
According to the New York Times, the FDA’s new regulations would ban the sale of e-cigarettes, cigars and pipe tobacco to minors and would require those purchasing the cigarettes to present photo identification to prove they were 18.
Also, CNN reports that the products would have to display health warnings, and they could not be sold in vending machines. Under the proposed new rules, manufacturers could only claim a risk reduction of their products after providing scientific proof to the FDA.
