Online E-Cigarettes Posing Unique Problems

Posted: Updated:

(NBC) A new survey reveals the booming online electronic cigarette market , and  the challenges of regulating these popular products.

There are over 450 brands of e-cigarettes online in thousands of flavors like Gummy Bear, marshmallow bubble gum  and others that may appeal to children.
Turns out  older brands are more likely to claim their products can help smokers kick the habit, while the newer brands often market their different flavors and shapes.

Researchers support the F-D-A's proposed rules that require product safety and ban sales to minors, but warn too many regulations could favor brands owned by tobacco companies which wouldn't reduce the number of smokers.
