Expect to see more news about e-cigarettes. E-cigarettes are nicotine delivery devices. Manufacturers bill them as an alternative to cigarettes where cigarette smoking is prohibited. They are also advertised as devices for those trying to quit smoking.
Recently, the FDA announced that it will attempt to impose marketing, manufacturing and safety restrictions on “electronic cigarettes” as tobacco products. Manufacturers and distributors of the device consider this a victory as the FDA will not attempt to regulate the e-cigarettes under stricter rules for drug delivery devices. Unfortunately, the devices are quickly gaining popularity worldwide.
