Statement on City of Chicago action on e-cigarette industry tactics

“Without question, e-cigarettes and similar products are targeting our kids as their next customers.  A teen’s developing brain is especially at risk to the addiction to nicotine and to the damage caused by the chemicals in these products. We stand behind the Mayor’s proactive efforts to disrupt their deceptive tactics and protect the health of our young people.”
