It is dangerous to use tobacco products in any form, including e-cigarettes, especially for young people. The regulatory agency is taking steps to stop the illegal sale of unauthorized electronic nicotine delivery system products. Permanent injunctions were filed against six E-cigarette manufacturers on Oct.18.
