Eisenhower Institute Panel Discussion: The Regulation of Vaping

The outbreak of lung injuries associated with vaping and the growing number of teenagers and young adults who use e-cigarettes raise the question: “What responsibility does our government have to regulate these activities?” This panel will explore the government’s role in the regulation of e-cigarettes and vaping, and how that process of regulation develops. Panelists will compare the current situation to the regulation of cigarettes, remarking on any political, social, or economic factors that make regulating e-cigarettes different. Within that context, panelists will discuss the roles of various actors in the regulation of vaping and e-cigarettes. This panel will be moderated by the Eisenhower Institute Undergraduate Fellows and include perspectives from:

• Megan Benka-Coker, Assistant Professor, Health Sciences, Gettysburg College
• Chris Bostic, Deputy Director for Policy, ASH, Action on Smoking and Health
• Sarah Owermohle, Health Care Reporter, POLITICO
