State closer to banning e-cigarettes for minors

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA (FOX 13) -

They may be a hot new trend, but they could soon be banned for minors.

The state is one step closer to banning kids from buying electronic cigarettes.

A Senate Committee approved a bill that would add nicotine dispensing devices to the current bans on selling tobacco products to kids.

The bill would also make it illegal for people under 18 to even possess those products.

If approved, Florida would become the 28th state to pass a ban.
