E-cigarettes soon to be regulated by FDA

Public health advocates are stepping up pressure on the U.S. government to quickly regulate and restrict access to e-cigarettes after new data showed use of the products tripled among high school and middle school children last year.

The figures released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Thursday raised concern among health officials who fear e-cigarettes will create a new generation of nicotine addicts who may eventually smoke conventional cigarettes.

Cigarette smoking fell more than 25 percent over the same period. E-cigarette proponents said the data could indicate e-cigarettes are diverting young people away from conventional cigarettes, a view rejected by tobacco control advocates. [ID: nL2N0XD1UH]

The Food and Drug Administration regulates cigarettes, roll-your-own tobacco and smokeless tobacco. It proposed extending its authority to e-cigarettes and hookah, among other products, nearly a year ago.

FDA spokesman Michael Felberbaum said on Friday the agency is “moving forward expeditiously to finalize the rule.” Its goal is to release it in June.

    E-cigarettes challenged by both law and science

    E-cigarettes are devices that are made up of a tube, a battery and a liquid-filled cartridge. When the user presses a button, the solution in the cartridge is heated and turns into vapour, which is inhaled. Most resemble the shape and feel of cigarettes but some look like lipsticks, fountain pens and even USB sticks.

    While most e-cigarettes contain nicotine, some don’t. They can come in a range of flavours—including mint, strawberry and chocolate.  Supporters say they are safe and are saving the lives of countless smokers who no longer inhale carcinogenic smoke. Detractors say the health benefits and risks are still unclear.

    ‘They are a huge business and they are growing all the time,’ says Marilyn Krawitz, a lecturer at the University of Notre Dame in Fremantle and  a solicitor with Perth firm CMS Legal.

    ‘The first e-cigarette was created in 2003 by a Chinese pharmacist, and since then they are being used all over the world. There are at the moment thousands of Australians who use e-cigarettes. In the UK there are about 700,000 people who use e-cigarettes, and the industry is expected to be about a $23 billion industry by 2023.’

    Krawitz has been researching the hazy legal status of e-cigarettes here in Australia. Under federal law, nicotine is listed in Schedule 7 of the Standard for the Uniform Scheduling of Medicines and Poisons. This means nicotine products cannot be sold unless they are approved for therapeutic use or are a device similar to traditional cigarettes. To date, the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration has not approved an e-cigarette product on the therapeutic goods register. However, there is a loophole that allows Australians to access e-cigarettes containing nicotine.

        Graphic Tobacco Ads to be Heard in Appeals Court

        (Reuters) – The government on Tuesday defended graphic tobacco labels and advertising that use pictures of rotting teeth and diseased lungs as accurate and necessary to warn consumers about the risks of smoking.

        The Food and Drug Administration on Tuesday asked an appeals court to undo a lower court ruling that said such labels were unconstitutional, violating tobacco companies’ free-speech rights.

        Mark Stern, a lawyer from the Justice Department representing the FDA, said the labels showing, for example, a man smoking through a hole in his throat were necessary to show the true risks of smoking, including addiction.

        “Adolescents notoriously underestimate their ability to resist addiction,” he told the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

        “Do (these labels) accurately and realistically depict the message that this is really addictive? Yes, (they) do.”

        The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates some 45 million U.S. adults smoke cigarettes, which are the leading cause of preventable deaths in the United States.

          Will Ohio Ban Smoking in Cars?

          COLUMBUS — Ohio lawmakers are considering a proposal to ban smoking in cars when there are passengers six or younger.

          Dr. Robert Bates is a Cleveland Clinic physician who specializes in smoking risks impacting children.

          “We do see increased inflammation and increased cardiovascular problems, particularly in children. We see problems of allergies  asthma and more bronchitis.  … There is no safe dose of cigarette smoke, particularly for children,” he said.

          He believes the ban should be extended to 17 years and younger.  California is one of several states with such a ban and has the higher age.

            Brazil Bans Smoking Nationwide

            BRASILIA, Brazil — The Brazilian Congress has passed a bill banning smoking in enclosed public places nationwide.

            Smoking bans are already in Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and other big cities.

            The new law goes one step further. It makes illegal designated smoking rooms in airports and bars that exist even in those places with a ban already in place.

            It also raises taxes on tobacco products and is forcing a minimum price on the products, increasing costs for consumers by up to 55 percent within four years.

                Outdoor Smoking Ban Takes Effect in Brooklyn

                The city’s outdoor smoking ban is now in effect, with smoking is outlawed in city parks, pedestrian plazas, beaches, boardwalks, marinas, public golf courses and sports stadia.

                City officials say the new law is expected to be enforced mostly by New Yorkers themselves, who are urged to call 311 if they spot smokers breaking the law.

                Violators will face a $50 fine, but only the city’s 200 Parks Enforcement Patrol officers can hand out those summonses. Those officers are also putting the emphasis on educating the general public.

                In a statement released Monday, Parks Department officials said: “The new smoking ban is a quality of life rule that is primarily self-enforcing. We’re counting on all New Yorkers to comply just as they do with other quality of life rules. Parks Enforcement Officers, who ensure quality of life issues in our parks and beaches, do have the ability to issue summonses to those who do not comply with parks rules, and when possible will educate and advise before taking further action when overseeing compliance.”

                  E-Cigarettes Declared Illegal by FDA

                  Sept. 9 (Bloomberg) — Electronic cigarettes sold in the U.S. are being marketed illegally as smoking-cessation aids, the Food and Drug Administration said.

                  E-cigarettes and related products sold by five closely held companies require approval as drugs or medical devices because they’re promoted to help smokers stop or reduce use of regular cigarettes, the FDA said in warning letters posted today on the agency’s website. To sell the products, companies must conduct animal and human studies and apply for FDA clearance, the agency said in a separate letter to the Electronic Cigarette Association, a Washington-based industry group.
