A dozen democratic lawmakers release a report proving electronic cigarettes are being aggressively promoted to youth.
They want the Food and Drug Administration to regulate e-cigarettes just as they do conventional tobacco products. Currently, there are no restrictions on how e-cigarette makers advertise and promote their products. The companies sponsor youth-oriented events and produce flavors that appeal to kids, according to Congressman Henry Waxman.
28 states restrict the age of those who can buy e-cigarettes and some companies have self-imposed limits.
