The popularity of nicotine usage, especially among adolescents, is increasing. However, studies have shown that the labeling of nicotine content on &-cigarette products is often inaccurate. Some products contain higher levels of nicotine than stated on the label, while others have lower levels. Due to the lack of FDA regulation on a-cigarette products, manufacturers in the U.S. are not held accountable for accurately disclosing nicotine content. This project aims to investigate whether the nicotine levels reported on a-cigarette labels align with the experimental findings. Implementing regulation in this area can ensure trust between a-cigarette users and U.S. manufacturers.
