Debate over e-cigarettes control in the US

With no laws in place to stop them, there are now more than 250 brands of e-cigarettes being marketed in the US.

    TV marketing of cigarettes has been banned in the US for more than forty years. But the law doesn’t apply to electronic cigarettes. Opponents say they’re no less addictive and are calling on the government to regulate them in the same way.
