New restrictions on e-cigarettes for vapor shops

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

Smoking cigarettes under the age of 18 in Montana is illegal, but there was no law prohibiting minors from purchasing e-cigarettes until now.

Under Senate Bill 66, vapor shops are no longer allowed to sell to minors, leaving some shops worried about how this will effect their revenue.The same law also means vapor shops are now required to purchase a five dollar license which allows them to sell either alternative nicotine products or vapor products. 

Montana is the only state where the law distinguishes tobacco from vapor products. This allows the state to prohibit sales to minors without labeling vapor products as tobacco products.
