Congress Wants FDA to Crack Down on E-Cigarettes Targeted at Kids

 
by KFBK News

Congress wants the FDA to crack down on e-cigarette companies that target kids in their ad campaigns.  

However, Richard Smith of tobacco giant R.J. Reynolds says there's no need to crack down on a practice that doesn't exist.

However, a new report indicates the e-smoke companies offer flavors that specifically attract minors, like grape and chocolate.  

Smith says they only sell their Vuse e-cigarette in menthol and regular tobacco flavors.  

He says R.J. Reynolds actually supports updating laws that keep youth from getting their hands on vapor products.  

Right now, Vuse is only available in Colorado and Utah, but Smith says they're looking to distribute it nationally later this year.
