Booming E-cigarette industry raises questions on safety, regulation

Great. I’m smoking this non toxic form of cigarette.’ I say to them, ‘I don’t know. I don’t know if this is non toxic,'” Schachter told Glor. The Food and Drug Administration does not currently regulate e-cigarettes, therefore manufactures are not mandated to disclose the ingredients. Most major brands boast a similar list of ingredients: Nictone, water, artificial flavoring, glycerol, and propylene glycol, the ingredient that creates the exhaled imitation smoke. The FDA has consistently promised to propose regulatory guidelines for e-cigarettes and while the organiation declined to speak to CBS News on camera, they issues this statement: “Further research is needed to assess the potential public health benefits and risks of electronic cigarettes and other novel tobacco products.” The research could take years according to Erika Sward, of the American Lung Association “We are very concerned that there is literally no federal oversight of these products.

As a matter of public policy, electronic cigarette laws should mirror tobacco product laws, not circumvent them, Chafee said. Other bills vetoed by Chafee on Wednesday would have let municipalities raise taxes on low-income, government-subsidized housing, and increased required public-reporting by the states quasi-public agencies. Chafee did not heed all calls for a veto.
