FDA plan­ning strict lim­its on e-cig­a­rettes

The State - - Nation - — WASH­ING­TON POST

The Food and Drug Ad­min­is­tra­tion, alarmed by a huge in­crease in va­p­ing among mi­nors, is ex­pected to im­pose se­vere re­stric­tions on the sale of most e-cig­a­rettes prod­ucts through­out the United States.

As soon as next week, FDA Com­mis­sioner Scott Got­tlieb is ex­pected to an­nounce a ban on the sale of fla­vored e-cig­a­rettes – the ma­jor­ity of va­p­ing prod­ucts sold – in tens of thou­sands of con­ve­nience stores and gas sta­tions across the coun­try, ac­cord­ing to se­nior agency of­fi­cials. Of­fi­cials said the agency will also im­pose such rules as age-ver­i­fi­ca­tion re­quire­ments for on­line sales.
