FDA regulates all tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, cigars, and hookah tobacco
Tobacco retailers play a direct role in protecting kids from nicotine addiction and the deadly effects of tobacco use. Learn what tobacco retailers need to do to comply with the new rules designed to prevent our nation's youth from becoming the next generation of Americans to die prematurely from tobacco-related disease.
Note: If you mix or prepare e-liquids, make or modify vaporizers, or mix loose tobacco, you will be regulated as both a retailer and a tobacco product manufacturer.
