- E-cigarettes are not currently approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) although restrictive regulations have been proposed
- Production of e-cigarette products is unregulated
- Without quality control measures it is difficult to know the potency of the drugs and what other potentially toxic chemicals may be present
- Nicotine products contain ingredients that may be toxic to humans
