SD Bill Would Ban Sale Of E-Cigarettes To Minors

February 24, 2014, 5:03 AM

SD Bill Would Ban Sale Of E-Cigarettes To Minors
PIERRE, SD -

South Dakota lawmakers are considering a proposal that would ban the sale of electronic cigarettes to minors.

E-cigarettes are battery-powered devices that resemble traditional cigarettes. They heat a liquid solution, creating vapor that users inhale to get nicotine without the smoke of regular cigarettes.

The Senate State Affairs Committee will discuss a bill Monday that would add electronic cigarettes to a state law that already bans the sale of regular cigarettes and other tobacco products to anyone younger than 18. Anyone selling electronic cigarettes to minors could be charged with a misdemeanor punishable by up to 30 days in jail and a $500 fine.

Advocates of e-cigarettes say they can help smokers quit tobacco, but some health advocates believe the inhalers can get people hooked on nicotine just like cigarettes.
