Guam - The Department of Public Health and Social Services wants more than just restrictions on the sale of the e-cigarettes to minors. While agency director James Gillan will provide testimony in support of Bill 264 at tomorrow's public hearing, he says further regulations should be put into place.
"Because it is a nicotine product is a tobacco product and it should be regulated as a tobacco product the Food and Drug Administration has determined that it is a tobacco product," he said.
The director says regulations and controls such as not allowing use in public or at least government buildings as well as imposing a tax as a tobacco product which can then be used to treat e-cigarette addiction.
