New GA law prohibits minors from buying e-cigs

(WTVM) -

A new Georgia law is making it harder for minors to get a hold of e-cigarettes: it's now illegal to sell or distribute e-cigs to anyone under 18.

Officials say e-cigarettes can be very dangerous because of several harmful ingredients they release.

Those officials say between 2009 and April 2014, the Georgia Poison Control Center received more than 1,000 poison calls linked to tobacco and nicotine products.
