38 state attorneys general, including Ohio's, have signed a letter to the FDA asking them to impose regulations on electronic cigarettes.
E-Cigarettes are marketed as a safer alternative to tobacco because they only emit water vapor. But, Attorney General Mike Dewine worries they could lead users, especially children, to tobacco products by getting them addicted to niccotine.
He says use among young people has doubled over the past year. Dewine is also urging state lawmakers to take action.
Dewine says there's no information yet on the long-term effects of e-cigarettes.
