The FDA Is Serious About Stopping Young People From Vaping


Watch Video

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is taking steps to crack down on e-cigarette use among young people.

Commissioner Scott Gottlieb asked for more information on marketing practices from vaping company Juul, which he says makes products that appeal to teens and kids.

The moves are part of an FDA regulatory plan that launched last summer to prevent nicotine addiction. Gottlieb said the agency will take further action against companies it says market nicotine products in a way that misleads minors.
