Breitbart News reported on Wednesday that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued a statement warning that the sale of electronic cigarettes by Mexican drug cartels is a criminal activity.
In its release, HHS stated that there are over 2,000 Mexican companies that have been identified in the U, including some of the largest brands like Vapors.
It noted that these companies sell over $2 billion worth of e-cigarettes in the United States annually, and that the cartels have created an “unregulated and largely unregulated electronic cigarette industry.”
The Department of Justice (DOJ) stated that “there is no federal or state law preventing the sale or distribution of e‐cigarettes in this country.”
The announcement came as a result of a raid on the offices of a drug cartel leader on Wednesday.
The DEA seized the offices in San Diego, California.
DEA spokesman Hector Alfaro said that the DEA has been working with local and state law enforcement agencies to shut down cartels’ production of and sales of counterfeit electronic cigarettes.
The U. S. Department’s National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) announced in July that it would study the risks posed by the use of e cigarettes.
In October, the U-S.
Food and Drug Administration (FDA) stated in a press release that it is conducting a review of the use and dangers of e cigarette products.
In addition to the threat posed by counterfeit electronic cigarette products, the DEA also stated that counterfeit electronic cigs can pose a health risk to consumers.
On Tuesday, the FDA announced that it will issue regulations on electronic cigarettes to prohibit the sale and distribution of the devices and products, as well as impose additional restrictions on the use, sale, distribution, and manufacture of electronic cigarette devices.
FDA also stated it will work with local governments to develop regulations and requirements for e cigarette manufacturers and distributors.
In September, the Trump administration issued an executive order instructing FDA to create a new task force to study e-cigarette safety.
The order stated that the FDA will be working with the National Institute of Health (NIH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to coordinate the study, with FDA also providing funding to the NIH for the study.
FDA will continue to work with state and local governments on the development of appropriate regulations to regulate e-cig products.
