Illinois Attorney General: Ban E-Cigarette Flavors
Madigan and 28 other state attorneys general submitted comments Friday to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration on its proposed e-cigarette rules. The FDA proposal is the first step toward regulating the battery-powered devices that allow users to inhale vapor from a heated liquid nicotine solution.
Madigan and the other attorneys general say flavored e-cigarettes attract children and teenagers to the products. They're urging the FDA to prohibit flavors other than tobacco and menthol. They also want the FDA to make e-cigarettes subject to the same advertising and marketing restrictions as tobacco products.
