Proposed Bill bans those under 18 from purchasing e-cigarettes

The come in various flavors but if a Proposed bill passes, you’ll have to be 18 years of age to buy e-cigarettes.

The Food and Drug Administration has limited restrictions on the sale of the battery-powered device.

It is up to state and local governments to limit availability to individuals over a certain age.
Shelbyville Representative Brad Montell introduced a bill on Monday.

This bill would add the sale of e-cigarettes to the current law prohibiting the sale of tobacco products, including cigarettes, to anyone under the age of 18.

Montell does not have an exact time table as to when this bill could be approved, however he said he has not run into any resistance thus far.
