National Health Groups Demanding Regulations On Booming E-Cig Industry
The popularity of electronic cigarettes is soaring, with sales expected to top two billion dollars this year in the US, but there is a lot of controversy about the safety of "vaping" as it's commonly called.
Now there are growing calls to regulate the e-cig industry.
What's possibly most surprising with the boom of e-cig popularity is that right now the industry is not regulated at all, despite an announcement by the federal government earlier this year that regulations would be put in place. Now, following some new studies, several health organizations are demanding rules to finally be put on paper.
"When we first opened up, we didn't know this was this big, and it was going to hit so fast and now everybody's coming to the vapor side," said Brittany Perry, assistant manager of West Virginia Mountain Vapor.
