Attorney General Jason Miyares recently sent a letter to the Commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) asking for increased regulation of illegal Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems, or ENDS, like e-cigarettes and vapes. The Attorney General notes that while steps have been taken to restrict youth access to ENDS products, there is no centralized enforcement mechanism or license to hold shops accountable. Additionally, many illegal, knock-off ENDS products are being smuggled into the country from China and pose the risk of being laced with fentanyl. In order to curb this danger from products designed for youth, the FDA needs to refocus on enforcement and regulation.
