It is also now against the law for a minor to possess an e-cigarette in a public space. A minor risks a $50.00 1st time infraction and up to $100.00 for each subsequent infraction imposed by a judge.
On May 5, 2016, the Food and Drug Administration
deemed that electronic cigarettes fall under regulation of the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act also known as the Tobacco Control Act. This means it is now considered a possible violation of the Tobacco Control Act if a retailer sells an electronic cigarette to a person under the age of 18 years old. Civil Money Penalties
are substantial for retailers. The first time Civil Money Penalty starts at $259.00 and range to over $11,000.00 for continued violation within a 48 month period.
