Kansas Health Secretary Lee Norman on Wednesday asked Congress for tougher regulations on e-cigarettes and vaping-related products that are blamed for hundreds of lung-related illnesses nationally.
"We need help at the state level," he told a subcommittee of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce.
Norman urged lawmakers to consider ways to regulate marketing, sales and the contents of e-cigarette and vaping products.
He said internet sales of nicotine products should be banned, and tobacco sales should be banned to anyone under age 21. He said anti-smoking laws should be expanded to include e-cigarettes . . .
