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.
