Samir Soneji, PhD, a tobacco regulatory control researcher at Dartmouth and lead author on the study advised Food and Drug Administration regulation of all tobacco products, to restrict manufacturer's ability to flavor, package, and market their non-cigarette tobacco products in ways designed specifically to appeal to adolescents and young adults, so that onset of cigarette smoking can be curbed.

The study is published online in JAMA Pediatrics.
