Schumer bill to stop e-cig companies from marketing to kids

U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer is taking aim at the manufacturers of electronic cigarettes to stop them from marketing their increasingly popular products to children.

The senator announced Sunday he is co-sponsoring a bill requiring the Federal Trade Commission to prohibit advertising and promoting e-cigs in a way that is clearly aimed at youngsters.

Manufacturers use questionable tactics such as offering bubble gum and cotton candy flavored varieties, to attract younger customers Schumer said.
