F.D.A Authorizes First E-Cigarette Product, Says Benefits Outweigh Traditional Cigarettes

For the first time in history, the FDA has officially authorized three e-cigarette products from the company "Vuse". According to the agency, the use of these tobacco-flavored e-cigarettes will help adult smokers either stopping or lowering their use of traditional cigarettes. While the agency has not yet approved of the use of e-cigarettes it has authorized these e-cigarettes products to be sold in the United States.

Tobacco Policy Official and a Senior Scholar at Georgetown Law’s O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law Eric Lindblom and Author of "Big Vape: The Incendiary Rise of Juul" Jamie Ducharme, joined Cheddar to discuss more.
