CHICAGO (Reuters) – The government said on Monday it plans to regulate electronic cigarettes as tobacco products.
The Food and Drug Administration's announcement came after the Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit issued a decision which said that electronic cigarettes are not drugs or devices unless they are marketed for therapeutic purposes.
In December, three judges from the appellate court ruled that the FDA could regulate the products as tobacco products and not as drugs. They also said that the FDA could not block the import of such products, giving Sottera Inc the ability to start importing its NJOY goods
and that's pretty much all you're getting with an e-cig because it vaporizes the liquid nicotine.
