Senator Sherrod Brown said Wednesday that e-cigarettes should be strictly regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Sen. Brown said he was scheduled to meet later in the day with the head of the FDA, and that he would urge a ban on sales and marketing efforts to children.

E-cigs aren’t governed by federal laws that apply to regular cigarettes, which prohibit their sale to minors and prohibit ads on television and radio, the Ohio Democrat noted in a telephone conference call with reporters.
