Earlier this year, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) finalized a rule that extended the agency’s authority to regulate electronic cigarettes and related vapor products as tobacco products. However, these products do not actually contain tobacco.
In so doing, FDA started the clock ticking toward August 8, 2018, the date on which e-cigarettes, e-liquids and other related newly deemed tobacco products that do not have FDA approval to remain on the market can no longer be legally sold.
