H-490.909 Use of Electronic Cigarettes in Smoking Cessation Programs

 

Our AMA urges that: (1) e-cigarettes be classified as (nicotine) drug delivery devices and should be subject to FDA regulation with appropriate standards for identity, strength, purity, packaging, and labeling with instructions and contraindications for use, including age of the user; (2) state legislatures prohibit the sales of e-cigarettes and all other nicotine devices that are not FDA-approved; and (3) as currently marketed, e-cigarettes be included in smokefree laws but separately defined from tobacco products.
