FDA Proposing New Regulations For E-Cigs

- The Federal Government wants to ban sales of electronic cigarettes to minors.

It also wants to require approval for new products and warning labels under regulations being proposed by the FDA. 

The proposal being issued won't immediately mean changes for the popular devices but it will eventually tame the fast-growing e-cigarette industry.

The public, members of the industry, and others will have 75 days to comment on the proposal. 

The FDA will evaluate those comments before issuing a final rule.
