Mass. bill would ban e-cigarette sales to minors


Children and teenagers would be banned from buying electronic cigarettes under a bill being proposed on Beacon Hill. The bill would restrict the sale of any tobacco or nicotine-delivery product to minors and prohibit use of the products on public school grounds. The bill would also apply existing state bans on public and workplace smoking to electronic cigarette use and restrict the distribution of product samples. The bill’s chief sponsor, Representative Jeffrey Sanchez, said the goal of the legislation is to modernize Massachusetts tobacco laws that do not take into account the rising popularity of electronic cigarettes.
