IOWA CITY, Iowa Johnson County health officials want local governments to start regulating the sale and use of electronic cigarettes, or e-cigs. Tuesday night the Johnson County Board of Health took a stance on the issue, declaring the product addictive and harmful.

Health officials want to see local government officials act on regulations, since the state and federal government has not.

"There are zero regulations," said Doug Beardsley, director of Johnson County Public Health. "The tobacco industry continues to develop these new products."

With a wide range of flavored products, Beardsley said e-cigs are clearly being marketed toward minors.

The product should not be sold to anyone under the age of 18, and should not be used indoors, Beardsley said.

"It should model the smoke free air act," he said.
