Selling eCigs to Minors Never Crossed Minds of Vendors

Pennsylvania is one of many states considering prohibiting the sale of e-cigarettes to minors. Based on interviews conducted for one newspaper article, it seems that's more of a formality than anything else.  Vendors by default seem to have decided not to sell devices to the underage to begin with.

“I didn't know it was legal to sell to kids,” said Gabrielle Williams, co-owner of Vape Inn on East Carson Street in the South Side, which stocks the personal smoking simulators. “I never see them in here. Teenagers don't really try to buy.”

Signs such as Williams' warding off underage, would-be patrons could become a statewide norm if Senate Bill 1055, fresh from the Judiciary Committee, passes the Senate when sessions resume in the spring. Pennsylvania would be the 27th state to enact stricter legislation.

According to the article, it seems the schools are the ones that need help. Some schools even report they might give e-cigarette device back to parents after a student is disciplined.  Then again, if my punk kid swiped one of my devices, I'd kind of be mad if it got confiscated and disposed of by the school.
