FDA eyes e-cigs

|By:, SA News Editor

The FDA plans to release a proposed rule establishing its authority over e-cigarettes.

The White House's OMB is currently reviewing the proposal to assess its economic impact. It's been five months with no word on when it will be completed.

Commissioner Margaret Hamburg believes the wait is almost over.

Predictably, e-cig makers oppose a full spectrum regulatory regime saying it will stifle innovation, damage small businesses and hurt consumers trying to quit smoking.
