The Board of Health is considering ways to tighten tobacco regulations, including changes to age limits, product sales, and overall prices. “A lot of the communities we were shown, certain ones have increased the age limit and increased fines,” said board chairman Russell Clark. “Right now, Scituate is in the middle. With e-cigarettes [regulations], we will be on the forefront.” According to Clark, several provisions would affect e-cigarette sales, including restricting the sales to those 18 and older. The use of e-cigarettes will also be restricted similarly to other tobacco products. Discussions on price, age limit changes, even limiting the sale of some tobacco paraphernalia are ongoing. The sweeping discussion has generated little controversy so far. Clark hoped that business owners will join a session Feb. 10 to give the board input.
