Recently, Speaker of the House John Boehner, a user of e-cigarettes himself, is opposing measures that would strictly regulate the devices, citing concerns that it will hurt the industry. His concerns, along with other GOP members, is in regards to proposed measures that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Senate Democrats are mulling over because of potential health concerns in relation to the use of e-cigarettes.
