Limit sale of e-cigarettes, say doctors

Two in five doctors believe that so-called "vapers" - or users of electronic cigarettes - should only be able to buy e-cigarettes from pharmacies.
Forty percent of medics believe that the products should only be available over the counter in chemists, a poll suggests.
Meanwhile 13% believe the devices should be prescription-only, according to the survey of 525 doctors.
The poll – conducted by Doctors.net.uk, an online network for UK doctors – also found that 16% did not think that the devices should be on the market at all.
And the final 31% of doctors said the products should be freely available.
