Why E-Cigarettes Raise Questions

The article in New Town Bee by Nancy K. Crevier poses a question about new regulations to the sale of electronic cigarettes in Connecticut. The state is joining 27 other states that already forbid the sale of electronic cigarettes and other related products to people under the age of 18.

On March 12, Governor Dannel P. Malloy introduced legislation to ban the sale of electronic cigarettes, electronic delivery systems, and other vapor products to those under the age of 18. Electronic cigarettes, also known as e-cigarettes or vape pens, are currently not regulated in the state.

The month of March was a busy one for legislators concerned about the proliferation of e-cigarette use among the country’s youth, the lack of regulation for sales of e-cigarettes to minors at state and federal levels, and advertising directed at young people that glamorizes “vaping” in much the same way that conventional cigarettes were once marketed.

In a press release issued that day, Gov Malloy said, “More than 75 percent of young people who have tried e-cigarettes also report smoking conventional cigarettes. This legislation will strengthen our prevention efforts and help reduce tobacco use among young people.”
