MASSACHUSETTS -- A bill to place electronic cigarettes under Massachusetts' tobacco control law is up for debate.
The Committee on Public Health approved the bill this week.
The legislation would ban the sale of e-cigarettes to minors, ban their use on school property and regulate smoking them in buildings and public areas.
E-cigarettes use an odorless chemical vapor to transfer nicotine into the body. A recent report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows more young people in the U.S. are using e-cigarettes. They are not yet classified or regulated by the Federal Drug Administration.
