NATIONAL — The FDA is working on a plan to discourage young people from using tobacco and e-cigarettes.

The agency will be expanding its “The Real Cost” campaign targeting teens, but they want to develop a full-scale public health education campaign to discourage use of tobacco.

FDA officials say they are rolling out the amped-up campaign to push the need for regulations for tobacco and nicotine.

They hope to unveil the plan in 2018.
