It’s already illegal for minors to buy cigarettes. A new bill could possibly make it illegal for the same age group to buy electronic cigarettes, more commonly known as E-Cigs.
Senator Liz Benacquisto introduced the bill.
The bill was presented to a Senate Committee Thursday morning.
Senator Nancy Detert sits on that committee and says this is a good law that she believes will eventually become law.
“It wasn’t covered under law that was illegal for underage kids to buy e-cigarettes. So with this new bill by Senator Benacquisto, it will be.”
The bill had bi-partisan support coming out of committee Thursday morning.
