Governor Rick Scott signed into law Senate Bill 224 that prohibits the sell of tobacco and nicotine or nicotine dispensing products to a person under the age of 18 years.
This includes: electronic cigarette, electronic cigar, electronic cigarillo, electronic pipe, or other similar device or product, any replacement cartridge for such device, and any other container of nicotine in a solution or other form intended to be used with or within an electronic cigarette, electronic cigar, electronic cigarillo, electronic pipe or other similar device or product.
Senate Bill 224 also prohibits the gift of samples of sample nicotine products or nicotine dispensing devices to persons under 18 years of age.
It also requires certain signage where a retailer sells nicotine products or nicotine dispensing devices and tobacco. The sign should substantially state, “The sale of tobacco products, nicotine products or nicotine dispensing devices to persons under the age of 18 is against Florida law. Proof of age is required for purchase.”
