Reps. Waxman, Pallone, and DeGette Calls on FDA to Protect Nation’s Youth from the Harms of Tobacco

Aug 8, 2014 Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today Ranking Members Henry A. Waxman, Frank Pallone, Jr., and Diana DeGette called on the FDA to use its enforcement authority to take immediate action to protect children from the harms of tobacco. Once FDA finalizes its proposed regulation to assert jurisdiction over various types of tobacco products, like e-cigarettes and cigars, the agency could do this by bringing enforcement cases against manufacturers of such products that are using flavoring or marketing tactics that appeal to children. Since passage of the Tobacco Control Act in 2009, which banned the marketing of flavored cigarettes, manufacturers of e-cigarettes and cigars have been targeting children and teenagers with youth-friendly marketing tactics such as flavoring their products cherry crush, grape, and bubble gum. These tactics are highly effective; as a result, e-cigarettes and flavored cigars are exploding in popularity among youth.
