Regulatory cloud hangs over electronic cigarettes

PARIS (AFP) - The electronic cigarette is seducing Europe and America, luring millions away from traditional tar-depositing tobacco with a battery-powered alternative that claims to be satisfying and harmless.

And while many smokers have swapped tobacco for a plastic gadget that emits a vapor inhaled like smoke, the "e-cig" faces a threat in Brussels and Washington, where policymakers fret it exploits a legal grey zone.

The e-cig claims to mimic the look, feel and flavor of the real thing - minus its tar, ash, smoke and most of its toxins.
