DENVER (AP) – Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper signed a bill Friday to broaden the definition of tobacco products that are off-limits to minors.
The new law bans nicotine-delivery devices for people under 18.
Colorado already bans electronic cigarettes for minors. The new law broadens the definition to include any nicotine-delivery device. Lawmakers said that tobacco law didn’t adequately keep nicotine out of the hands of kids.
The law doesn’t address the age of buying tobacco.
