Azim Chowdhury authored a chapter in “Dual Markets – Comparative Approaches to Regulation.” The book, first published on November 14, 2017, analyzes dual markets for regulated substances and services and aims to provide a framework for effective regulation. A “dual market” refers to the existence of both a legal and an illegal market for a regulated product.The volume focuses on nine types of markets and examines the relationship between regulation, the emerging illegal market, and the resulting overall access to each product or service. Azim’s chapter, “Regulation of E-Cigarettes in the United States” focuses on the FDA regulation of e-cigarettes under the Deeming Rule, including the current pre-market authorization requirements that could result in an effective ban on e-cigarettes in the United States.
