The opportunity to smoke electronic cigarettes (those with a nicotine vapor) if you are under 18, has come and gone. Effective August 1, 2013, N.C.G.S. 14-313 adds the e-cigarette to the list of tobacco derived products that are banned for those under 18 years old. I KNOW they are targeted to the youth market with the flavored vapors etc. but now they are illegal. E-cigarettes are only slightly cooler than the candy cigarettes that we played with as kids back, way back…in the day. But those did not infuse your body with nicotine.
