E-cigarette sales concern

13th March 2009

There have been calls for the government to limit the sales of electronic cigarettes because of fears they could be dangerous. 

The electronic cigarettes are powered by batteries and give out a mist of liquid nicotine. Trading standards officers have warned that children could potentially buy the electronic cigarettes and inhale dangerous levels of nicotine.

The government has been urged to impose an over-18 age limit to deter potential underage purchasers of the device.
