A Chittenden County lawmaker has introduced in a bill in the Vermont House of Representatives that would ban the sale of e-cigarettes on the internet.
A draft of the bill was introduced Tuesday by Rep. George Till and and referred to the House Committee on Human Services.
Under H. 26, only licensed wholesalers would be permitted to sell electronic cigarettes, liquid nicotine and tobacco paraphernalia to, and the bill would ban shipments of the products to individuals.
The bill is one of many Till says he’ll introduce to keep e-cigarettes away from young Vermonters, according to the Rutland Herald.
He has already proposed raising the legal age to purchase and possessing tobacco and tobacco substitutes from 18-21, and he said intends to introduce legislation by the end of the week that would tax e-cigarettes the same as traditional cigarettes.
