The Food and Drug Administration this morning gave the vapor industry a rude awakening when it issued sweeping regulations that deemed vapor products to be tobacco products.
The 499-page document places all vapor products under the jurisdiction of the Tobacco Control Act of 2007. Under the changes, vapor products including e-liquid containing no nicotine, will be held to the same requirements. Numerous vaping advocacy groups have already denounced the regulations. The American VapingAssociation, in a statement, referred to the regulations as “downright prohibition.”
