In this AEI Events Podcast, a group of experts convene to discuss the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) excessive regulation of e-cigarettes and what might be done to further encourage their use as an alternative to smoking. AEI’s Sally Satel begins by surveying the epidemiology of smoking and the potential of e-cigarettes to function as a cessation tool. In the following conversation, panelists discuss the history of e-cigarette regulation, potential legislative fixes to current regulations, and the role of pending litigation in scaling back the FDA’s regulations.

Panelists include Azim Chowdhury (Keller and Heckman LLP), Greg Conley (American Vaping Association), Sally Satel (AEI), Saul Shiffman (University of Pittsburgh), and Alan D. Viard (AEI). The discussion is moderated by Stan Veuger (AEI).

This event took place on June 29, 2017.
