Indiana Attorney General Targets E-Cigarettes For Regulations

August 8, 2014 Updated Aug 8, 2014 at 3:05 PM EST

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (21Alive) -- Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller is urging the FDA to regulate the marketing of E-Cigarette products to protect minors.

Zoeller says sadly there is a long history of companies manufacturing and selling tobacco using shrewd marketing techniques designed to push their disease-causing products onto children by getting kids addicted to nicotine.

Now, technology has devised a new nicotine-delivery device creating potential health risks that aren't fully researched. Zoeller has joined 25 other Attorney Generals from other states that have filed an official comment with the FDA on the matter.
