Two Laws Protecting Arkansas Kids Against Dangers of
E-cigarettes Recently Passed During the 89th General Assembly
Act 1451 of 2013 prohibits providing minors with electronic oral devices such as e-cigarettes, e-cigars, e-pipes or any related products. These products cannot be sold to minors in stores, through self-service displays, or vending machines. Violating this law could lead to a penalty of up to $100.
Act 1099 is an amendment and prohibits the use of tobacco or tobacco products (including e-cigarettes) on property owned or leased by a public school district including school buses. The act states that a copy of this statute should be posted in a conspicuous location at every entrance to each building owned or leased by a public school district and every school bus used to transport public school students. Violating this law could lead to a penalty of between $10 and $100.
