Boston Moves Closer To Banning E-Cigarette Sales To Minors

BOSTON (CBS) – Boston is one step closer to passing a proposal that would ban the sale of electronic cigarettes to anyone under 18.

The rule would also make using e-cigarettes at work illegal.

E-cigarettes are smokeless devices which deliver nicotine in the form of vapor.

Boston’s Public Health Commission approved the measure.

The commission will hear opinions from the public — then hold a final vote on the proposal in November.

Many people use them to wean themselves off real cigarettes.

The proposal would require stores to get a permit to sell them.
