KHON2 reported yesterday about the increasing number of cases of children falling ill after drinking e-juice which is the liquid used in e-cigarettes.
Following up on that story KHON2 has learned a lawmaker wants to try to get e-cigs away from kids all together.
Senator Josh Greenwants to ban children under 18 from purchasing and using e-cigs.
He says as e-cigs have become more popular. People are finding ways to misuse them.
“Also people are getting some of the tars from other resins like marijuana resin smoking that,” said Green.
A bill that would prohibit the sale of e-cigs to minors stalled at the Capitol.
Green says he’ll keep fighting to change the law.
