Are Electronic Cigarettes a Public Health Threat or Benefit?

Duration: 60 Minutes
In June 2009, the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act (Tobacco Control Act) became law, and amended the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act to give the Agency authority to regulate the manufacture, labeling, distribution, and marketing of tobacco products in the United States. Specifically, although a “tobacco product” is defined broadly, in pertinent part, as “any product made or derived from tobacco that is intended for human consumption,” the law only provides FDA with authority to regulate, through the its new Center for Tobacco Products (CTP), cigarettes, cigarette tobacco, roll-your-own tobacco, and smokeless tobacco. However, any “other tobacco products,” such as electronic cigarettes and their components may become subject to regulation if FDA “deems” such products to be subject to the new law.
