Despite the launch of a huge communication campaign, the e-cigarette "Juul" continues to make waves. In response to this surge, the state of Pennsylvania is preparing to prohibit the sale of electronic cigarettes to minors.
The Pennsylvania House of Representatives recently passed a law unanimously that would make the state one of the last to ban the sale of e-cigarettes to minors.
The Chamber's Bill 2226 provides for the addition of nicotine products to the list of tobacco products already prohibited for sale to minors. Penalties for offenders would be the same as for the sale to the public of cigarettes and other tobacco products.
The republican representative Kathy Rapp said that his bill would also ban the sale of the famous "Juul" that appeals to young people.
In a statement she states " Juvenile Marriage Reaches Adolescence Raises Serious Health Problems Adding " The product can be placed in the USB port of a computer, which makes it even easier to hide for young people. »
This bill would only concern minors, so it will still be legal to sell electronic cigarettes to adults. The measure is pending in the state Senate and will likely be validated in a few days.
