E. Idaho Police Say More Youth Using E-Cigarettes
POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) — Police in eastern Idaho say more youths are using vapor cigarettes in the region, and they're warning vendors that it's illegal to sell the nicotine delivery devices to minors.
The Idaho State Journal reports several of the so-called vape shops have opened in Pocatello in recent months.
Pocatello police Lt. Paul Manning said the department is reminding the shops that they have to check IDs to verify customers' ages before they sell the devices.
Manning says once officers educate shops on the rules, they'll start enforcing through random checks.
Bannock County Commissioners unanimously approved a resolution in December that added e-cigarettes to the smoking ban inside all county buildings.
