FDA Proposes New Regulations for E-Cigarettes,
Among Other Products
April has proved to be an eventful month for tobacco control. The Center for Public Health Systems Science at Washington University in St. Louis and TCLC released a Point of Sale Strategies Tobacco Control Guide, Congress released a report calling out e-cigarette companies for targeting youth, and today the FDA announced a proposal to extend its tobacco authority. The FDA’s proposal will extend its’ list of regulated products (cigarettes, cigarette tobacco, roll-your-own tobacco, and smokeless tobacco) to include other currently unregulated market products like e-cigarettes, pipe tobacco, nicotine gels, waterpipe tobacco, dissolvables, and cigars.

This proposal is a landmark event for the future of tobacco control, as extending the list of restricted products increases the potential to “make the next generation tobacco free,” according to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.
