Electronic cigarettes sales continued to slump during February, with recent federal regulatory changes playing a key role in demand declining for closed-pod cartridges.

Overall sales of mainstream e-cigarette products, as determined by total dollar amount, dropped 14.5% for the four weeks ending Feb. 22 compared with the same period a year ago, according to the latest Nielsen report released Tuesday.

The latest Food and Drug Administration tobacco-industry restrictions debuted Feb. 6. The FDA raised the legal smoking age from 18 to 21 on Dec. 20.
