WNYT: FDA, NYSDOH Plan Strict Limits on Sale of Flavored E-Cigarettes

Cara Zampi, youth coordinator for the Capital Region Tobacco-Free Communities, appeared on WNYT NewsChannel 13 to discuss the rising popularity of flavored e-cigarettes.

The Food and Drug Administration is looking to ban the sale of such products. Capital Region Tobacco-Free Communities is a program of St. Peter’s Health Partners.

From the story:

“We know that we know at 81 percent of youths who have ever tried a product such as tobacco have said that they’ve started with a flavored product,” Zampi said.

Zampi said the FDA’s plan to ban the sale of flavored, cartridge based, e-cigarette products in convenience stores across the nation may help, because most of those products are bought in person.
