USDA attempts to keep E-cigarettes out of the hands of teens

WASHINGTON D.C. (WTVB) - The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is proposing new rules to regulate e-cigarettes.  The rules being floated today by the FDA would immediately make e-cigarettes off-limits to anyone younger than 18.  Public health experts have been calling on the FDA to regulate e-cigarettes as the products' popularity has been heating up over the past few years.  Sales hit two-billion dollars last year. 

Health experts and the FDA the say manufacturers increasingly aim e-cigarettes at kids, with flavors including strawberry and thin mint.  Supporters say e-cigarettes are safer than tobacco cigarettes and can be used to help people quit smoking.
