FDA Tobacco Tsar Focuses on “Dual Use” with eCigs

Valley News cornered Mitch Zeller, head of the FDA's tobacco arm to ask about the agency's moves on e-cigarettes.  Zeller is still playing his cards close to the vest, not revealing what the regulations might look like. However, he did shed a little light behind the ideology of e-cigarette prohibition.

Don't worry, the gateway and flavors thing still made an appearance, but it seems like the concept of “dual use” is gaining some steam.  One thing that's different about e-cigarettes is that most users start out with dual use and then eventually migrate completely to e-cigarettes.  This isn't a binary switch, and that seems to be lost on some. Well, either that, or it's a convenient trope.
