The government said on Monday it plans to regulate electronic cigarettes as tobacco products.
The Food and Drug Administration’s announcement came after the Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit issued a decision which said that electronic cigarettes are not drugs or devices unless they are marketed for therapeutic purposes.
In 2009, the FDA was given the authority to regulate tobacco products that are not drugs or devices.
Electronic cigarettes, marketed under names such as NJOY, mimic the act of smoking and include nicotine, but do not emit the same type of odor or ash.
