HB 2546 bans the sale of electronic cigarettes to minors
Rep. Kathleen Taylor (D-Milwaukie) today applauded Gov. Kate Brown for signing House Bill 2546 into law. The bill, which passed overwhelmingly in both the House and Senate, bans the sale of electronic cigarettes to minors and applies the Indoor Clean Air Act to e-cigarettes.
“Until now, kids had easy access to electronic cigarettes, and we know that many companies specifically target children with their marketing,” said Rep. Taylor. “This bill will ensure that we’re treating e-cigarettes the same as regular cigarettes, and that kids and the public will be protected from their negative health impacts.”
E-cigarettes, like regular cigarettes, will be regulated under the Oregon Indoor Clean Air Act and will not be able to be used in restaurants, bars, movie theaters, work places and indoor public places.
