Regulation looms for online cigarette sales

Online selling of so-called ‘sin’ products like cigarettes and alcoholic beverages, which the government relies on for tax revenue, will be subject to registration requirements to ensure only legitimate sellers get to use the platform, officials said. The Department of Health (DoH) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said they support a proposal to ban unregistered sellers from participating in the online market for “sin” products.
