E-Cigarettes: Smoke & Mirrors

In this Fourth Branch video, legal and healthcare experts debate how federal and state agencies should approach the regulation of e-cigarettes. Should vaping be encouraged as a harm-reduction strategy, with the aim of reducing cigarette-related deaths, or should regulators seek to restrict the availability of e-cigarettes, with the aim of preventing nicotine addiction? This video explores these questions and more.
