WASHINGTON, April 28, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Thirty-one leading public health and medical organizations today urged President Obama to quickly finalize long-overdue rules covering all tobacco products, including electronic cigarettes, cigars and hookah.
In a letter to the President, the groups said the continued lack of federal oversight of these products is putting the health of America's kids at risk. Underscoring the urgent need for action, a recent government survey showed that youth e-cigarette use tripled from 2013 to 2014 and now exceeds youth cigarette smoking for the first time.
Smoking does not appear in the Constitution. The 10th Amendment leaves it up to the States and the people. Case closed.
