ELECTRONIC CIGARETTES
Ohio bill would prohibit sales of e-cigarettes to minors; products' definition raises concerns

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Tuesday, February 11, 2014 11:23 AM EST
COLUMBUS, Ohio


An Ohio Senate panel has approved a measure to ban the sale of electronic cigarettes to minors.

The bill aims to keep the products out of the hands of those under age 18. It was unanimously approved Tuesday by the Senate Criminal Justice committee.

The measure has raised some concerns from anti-smoking groups, such as the Ohio State Medical Association, because it defines the items as "alternative nicotine products" rather than tobacco-derived products.

E-cigarettes are battery-powered devices that provide users with aerosol puffs that typically contain nicotine, and sometimes flavorings like fruit, mint or chocolate.

They have often been described as a less dangerous alternative to regular cigarettes. But there are few studies exploring exactly what chemicals are in them, and in what concentrations, and whether those levels are harmful.
