Electronic Cigarettes

  • An electronic cigarette (or e-cigarette) is designed to look like a cigarette.
  • When you puff on it, instead of inhaling smoke, you inhale a mist of liquid, flavorings, and nicotine.
  • There is no published research to suggest that these products work for helping an individual quit smoking.
  • Since 2009, FDA has regulated cigarettes, smokeless, and roll-your-own tobacco. Effective August 8, 2016, FDA has finalized a rule to regulate all tobacco products to include: hookah, e-cigarettes, dissolvables, smokeless tobacco, cigarettes, all cigars, roll-your-own tobacco, pipe tobacco, and future tobacco products that meet the statutory definition of a tobacco product.
