A state senate committee will hear a proposal this week that would make it illegal to sell e-cigarettes and vaporizers to minors.
Last fall Senator Judy Warnick got a tip from a police officer from her district in Moses Lake. He noted students were buying e-cigarettes easily from one store in particular.
“…and then they were modifying them so they could use marijuana in those cigarettes,” Warnick said.
She said there wasn’t much he could do about it. There are no rules that prohibit selling e-cigarettes to minors.
