The Electronic Cigarette Industry Group (ECIG) announced Wednesday that they would be opening a new office in D.C.  Bryan Haynes, a partner in Troutman Sanders’ tobacco practice, supports the group’s government affairs department.  ECIG has been expanding rapidly in the face of the looming deeming regulations expected from the FDA, and the muddy waters of state government regulation.

ECIG is committed to working with manufacturers, distributors, and importers of e-cigarettes “to ensure fair, balanced state and federal regulations and provide compliance assistance to members.” The group “advocates for reasonable regulation of electronic cigarettes and supports laws that prevent minors from accessing them.”
