For the first time, the Food and Drug Administration is proposing federal regulations on electronic cigarettes. They would ban sales to anyone under 18 and require makers to get FDA approval for their products. Chip Paul is CEO of Palm Beach Vapors, a Tulsa based e-cigarette retailer. He doesn’t oppose regulation, in fact, he believes the rules, especially in regard to the liquids inside the e-cigs, should be stricter.
The rules will not ban ads or internet sales or the use of flavors in e-cigarettes, which some critics say attract young users.
