UNITED KINGDOM: A heavy fine for selling e-liquids to a minor.

In the UK, the owner of an e-cigarette shop was fined 2000 sterling for selling e-liquids to a young 16 year-old.


RE-RECEIVING, HE RECEIVES A FINE OF 2000 £ FOR SALE TO A YOUNG 16 YEAR


It was in Wigan, a city in Greater Manchester, England, that the facts unfolded. Barry Russel Gottlieb, a vape shop owner was sentenced by Wigan magistrates to pay a £ 2134 fine for selling e-liquids to a young 16 year-old.

As a repeat offender, he received a first fine of £ 800 for the same offense in 2016. While rumors ran about potential sales to young people under the age of 18, the shop was caught after an undercover operation and with the help of a minor volunteer.

Yet the shop in question had received commercial standards advice from the city. The counselor Kevin Anderson, a member of the consulting firm states: " We will always be there to support and advise the companies in the first instance even though it is disappointing to see that after a number of visits for advice on business standards, Mr. Gottlieb can sell e-liquids to our young volunteer. Adding " We encourage all e-cigarette vendors to be vigilant and responsible. Do not hesitate to ask for proof of age from anyone who appears to be less than 25 years old.«
