Girl Scouts now taking a stand against e-cigarettes

Posted: Updated:

The girl scouts are taking a stand against thin mints. And we're not talking about the cookie. Instead we're referring to the newest flavor in e-cigarettes.      

The girl scouts are just one group among many fighting the makers of the flavored nicotine used in electronic cigarettes.  It has joined general mills and tootsie roll industries in threatening legal action for using their brand names like 'thin mint', even ‘cinnamon toast crunch', or  'tootsie roll' among the flavors marketed for e-cigarettes.        

The FDA has proposed regulating e-cigarettes, but with no mention yet of banning fruit or candy flavors.
