Kentucky Senate Passes Bill Banning E-Cigarette Sales to Minors
A bill that would restrict the sale of e-cigarettes to minors is one step closer to becoming law. The Kentucky Senate passed the measure on a nearly unanimous vote, with only two Senators voting “no”.
The bill treats e-cigs like traditional tobacco products. Although e-cigs don’t contain tobacco, some people worry, and some studies have shown, that use of the devices could lead young people to start using tobacco. A similar bill is being considered by the Kentucky House.
