Professor Michael Siegel, Department of Community Health Sciences at the Boston University School of Public Health, and university research assistant Amanda Katchmar have conducted a study looking at the impact of American restrictions and bans on flavoured electronic cigarette products.
The bans and restrictions on flavoured product sales were introduced with the aim of preventing teen access.
“The justification for these restrictions includes the argument that youth e-cigarette use will re-normalise youth smoking, leading to increased rates of cigarette smoking by teenagers. However, we propose an evidence-based version of this model based on several years’ worth of longitudinal and econometric research,” they say.
