Legislature to Address Use of E-Cigarettes by Minors
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska lawmakers are set to discuss a possible ban on the sale of e-cigarettes to minors.
so-called e-cigarettes heat liquid nicotine into a flavored, smokeless
vapor. They're commonly used by smokers who are trying to quit, but
their growing popularity among teenagers has caught the attention of
Nebraska lawmakers, who have scheduled a hearing on Friday.
Legislature's General Affairs Committee will discuss the issue during a
hearing that starts at 1:30 p.m. at the Capitol. The hearing could lead
to legislation next year that would ban their sale to minors.
