The lawmakers investigated the distribution, sale, and marketing of e-cigarettes to youth with nine other Democrats. They say the findings highlight the need for federal regulations.

E-cigarettes are battery-powered devices that heat up a liquid nicotine solution and create a vapor that's inhaled. They have grown in popularity in recent years. This has prompted lawmakers to search for ways to regulate the new product.

Recently, Durbin and Waxman have called on the Food and Drug Administration to expand regulation over tobacco products, including e-cigarettes.
