WASHINGTON - The Centers for Disease Control released new data that shows e-cigarette use among high school student has risen one thousand percent in four years. A record 3 million teenagers used electronic cigarettes over the last year. The data also finds e-cigarette use among middle and high school students surpassed cigarettes as the most commonly used tobacco product. Senators Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) are calling on the FDA to issue strong regulatory action on e-cigarettes. Senator Durbin says, "While OMB drags its feet on finalizing common sense regulations to protect children and teenagers from the dangers of e-cigarettes, the number of young people getting hooked on this potentially deadly habit continues to grow."
