The Food and Drug Administration moved to grow its authority over e-cigarettes, cigars, and hookah tobacco by banning the sale of electronic cigarettes to minors on Thursday. The government agency has been working on new rules over tobacco found in products other than cigarettes for two years.

The federal government is also requiring that health warnings be displayed on the product packages of “covered tobacco,” a category that includes e-cigarettes and other products, as well as roll-your-own tobacco.

The agency called the rules “a milestone in consumer protection,” saying it will also be able to better stop misleading claims by product manufacturers and evaluate potential risks.
