    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has announced that they will be regulating e-cigarettes. They have decided that e-cigarettes need to be kept out of the hands of children and are banning their sale to anyone under 18. Producers of e-cigarettes will also be under federal regulation.

    While I agree that regulations have to be put in place, I do think that e-cigarettes and vapes need to be researched a lot more aswell before they come into effect.

    If they can stop people from smoking, then all well and good, but we need to know what or even if there are other dangers.
