Minnesota Medical Association Statement on FDA Regulating e-Cigarettes


From Cindy Firkins Smith, M.D., MMA President

“We’re glad to see that the FDA is working on tightening regulations on e-cigarettes. This is certainly a topic physicians have been advocating for in Minnesota. The dramatic growth of these products is a public health concern that warrants careful attention. The MMA fully supports efforts to restrict the availability and use of e-cigarettes, as well as regulate the devices and the substances they deliver. We applaud the FDA’s proposed regulations and view it as good start, but more must be done. The MMA is strongly supportive of efforts within the state Legislature to preserve the integrity of clean indoor air by including e-cigarettes in the Freedom to Breathe Act.”
