Doctors urge Pa. to regulate e-cigs like tobacco
The Pennsylvania Medical Society says the state should regulate electronic cigarettes, or "e-cigs," the same way it handles other tobacco products, including applying taxes and banning sales to minors.
All that, even though e-cigs don't contain tobacco.
"They may be odorless and give the appearance of being less harmful, but beyond that, we just don't know the impact that the vapors have on the user and others," said society President Dr. Bruce A. MacLeod, PMS president. "It may be best for now to err on the side of caution while researchers investigate."
