Parents, school officials and state policymakers are expressing concerns about who has access to student data and how that information is being used. During this webinar, we will hear from experts about these concerns and steps that state policymakers might take to ensure privacy and appropriate use of data.
What states are doing to regulate e-cigarettes/alternative nicotine products
Tobacco and its use have been regulated for decades. Reports of the negative public and personal health effects of traditional forms of tobacco use have increased consumer awareness. This, in turn, has encouraged people and companies to look for alternative or potentially safer forms of adult tobacco and nicotine use. Vaporizers, also known as digital, electronic or e-cigarettes, do not produce a combustible “smoke” like traditionally burned cigarettes, nor do they contain tar, a by-product of burning tobacco.
Americans love their privacy, and privacy concerns are woven throughout many of these emerging trends. New technology—from social networking to online shopping to drone surveillance—is threatening the cherished right like never before. Policymakers are being asked to balance security concerns with personal safety, and to decide where to draw the line at what’s enough.
