New Trend: Electronic Cigarettes
Electronic cigarettes, also known as “e-cigarettes” and “e-cigs”, are smoke-free electronic products that turn nicotine and other chemicals into vapor inhaled by the user. E-cigarettes are not regulated by the FDA, which regulates tobacco use, nor are they regulated by any national-level laws. These products do not contain tobacco, but they do contain the highly addictive drug nicotine. Join us at our August meeting to find out more on local efforts to address this growing community concern!
FDA Requests Public Input on Menthol!
Tobacco Control Advocates: You have until Sept. 23, 2013 to submit your comments to the FDA! From FDA.gov: "Inviting Public Input on Menthol in Cigarettes: Menthol cigarettes raise critical public health questions. The FDA issued an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) to take public input on menthol in cigarettes. Specifically, the FDA is requesting information to inform its thinking about potential regulatory options such as: 1. tobacco product standards; 2. sale and distribution restrictions; and 3. other regulatory actions and considerations." Let your voice be heard! Visit www.FDA.gov today!
