Health groups try to speed regulations for e-cigarettes: Brian Taff reports during Action News at 5pm on July 30, 2018. (WPVI)

Nearly a dozen major health groups have joined a lawsuit against the FDA to speed up regulations on e-cigarettes and cigars.

It challenges the FDA's decision to delay enforcing a 2016 rule requiring e-cigarette, cigar, and hookah makers to prove why they should stay on the market.

The health groups say the inaction is harming the health of kids, teens, and young adults.

While cigarette smoking has dropped among teens, vaping has skyrocketed.
