The “social image” of vaping may have overtaken smoking cessation as the most popular reason for using e-cigarettes – which many find more satisfying than smoking. Those are the striking conclusions of two recent studies of the perception and usage of e-cigs.
U.S. president Donald Trump on Friday announced his intention to nominate Scott Gottlieb as the next commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), ending a months-long process watched closely by the e-cigarette industry.

Republican U.S. House member Tom Cole has announced the reintroduction of a bill to change the grandfather date in the FDA’s deeming regulation – but with significantly expanded legislation to cover other major areas.
