Although the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has the authority to regulate and even prohibit internet sales of commercial tobacco products and e-cigarettes, it has yet to exercise this authority. States and local governments can close this loophole. This webinar will present an overview of the current landscape of internet and delivery-based commercial tobacco product sales and highlight regulatory challenges presented by the prevalence of on-demand app-based retailers and delivery services popular among young people. The presenters will also describe state and local legal and policy measures for regulating online sales of commercial tobacco products and e-cigarettes, including legislative and litigation approaches that several states and cities have taken to address internet sales to underaged persons.
