Posted: Updated:

Guam - Several democrat and republican senators have united to introduce Bill 264. The legislation would prohibit the sale and distribution of electronic cigarettes to minors. According to statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention the use of e-cigarettes among high school students has doubled nationally from 4.7 percent in 2011 to 10 percent a year later. Those caught violating this proposed law would be subject to the same fines and penalties regulating the sale of tobacco products. Currently California, Colorado and Maryland have laws in place banning the sale of e-cigarettes to minors.  You can read Bill 264 at GuamLegislature.com.
