Manufacturers insist e-cigarettes are aimed solely at adults, but the CDC reported last year that the number of middle and high school students using them tripled from 2013 to 2014. The Associated Press
focused its attack on electronic cigarettes on the issue of advertising, saying too many kids see the ads. There are bans on TV commercials and some other types of marketing for regular cigarettes but there are no restrictions on advertisements for e-cigarettes. Most states, though, ban the sale of e-cigarettes to minors. (AP Photo/Nam Y. Huh, File)
