Should the FDA be allowed to regulate e-cigarettes?

The LA Times looks at the current debate over e-cigarettes. This device allows smokers to get their nicotine fix through a small, smokeless electronic cigarette shaped device. The US FDA believes that they should be able to regulate them, as it can prove as a new gateway device to target teenagers who could be turned on to cigarettes by their use.

What do you think about this drug deliver device? While it may help millions stop smoking, it may introduce millions more to a new way of consuming nicotine. There are other things, such as lollypops, that contain nicotine, that are not regulated by the FDA, so why should this smoke-free device face FDA regulation?
