LANSING (WKZO) -- Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette is among dozens of attorneys general calling on the federal government to regulate e-cigarettes. The National Association of Attorneys General has sent a letter to the Food and Drug Administration laying out their argument.

Schette says that they want authority over the e-ciggs because not much is really is known about their safety. He wants to make sure they're better understood.

The state AGs want advertising restricted to keep the devices out of the hands of children, and the ingredients regulated. While tobacco ads on television have been banned for decades, there are no such controls as yet on the new e-cigarettes, which generate no smoke and instead produce water vapor.
