China is planning to regulate e-cigarettes in an attempt to stave off a new gateway addiction in what is already the world's largest smoking population. The Asian giant has over 300 million tobacco-smokers—nearly a third of the world's total—but the battery-operated vaping trend has yet to explode as it has in the United States and elsewhere. "The supervision of electronic cigarettes must be severely strengthened," said Mao Qunan, head of the National Health Commission's (NHC) planning department, at a press conference Monday.
