The FDA banned sales of tobacco products to people under age 18


That year, President Barack Obama signed the Family Control Act, a law that gave the agency authority over cigarettes, smokeless and roll-your-own tobacco products. Congress also gave authority to the agency to assert jurisdiction over other tobacco products. E-cigarettes are now the most commonly used tobacco product among youth. 3 million middle and high school students reported used e-cigarettes in 2015 according data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the FDA’s Center for Tobacco Products released in April. When applied, the new rules are expected to reduce number of teenager smokers in the U.S.
