You may be surprised to learn it's not illegal to sell ecigarettes to youth because the industry is not regulated.

 

Ecigarettes contain nicotine, but not tobacco.

 

Crook County Judge Mike McCabe says they are leading central Oregon, by being the first county in the area to ban the sales to youngsters.

 

"We just think they need to be more forthcoming.  It's something hazardous and they try to dress it up and look like candy so they can get young people to buy 'em."

 

Crook County plans to vote on her new ordinance banning the sale of ecigarettes to minors at their next meeting September 3rd.

 

In Europe, a new survey found that a majority of Europe's 30 million ecigarette users are between the ages of 15 and 24.
