    This bill would:
    Ban e-cigarette sales to minors, but would also greatly restrict online sales of nicotine-containing products by treating e-cigarettes the same as traditional tobacco products.

    Specifically, the bill would require a retailer conducting an online sale to: (1) Obtain a copy of the buyer's driver's license; (2) Obtain a statement from the buyer affirming that they are the person pictured; and (3) Send the package through a service that checks the ID of the buyer at delivery. Retailers would be required to perform this check every time a consumer places an order.

    SB 622 would also require e-cigarette retailers in Rhode Island to obtain a tobacco license and only buy their e-cigarettes from licensed wholesalers or distributors.

    The Commonwealth syndrome, (where's my piece of the action). I live on block island and buy exclusively from the internet. This will really throw a monkey wrench into my life style if vendors don't want to jump through hoops to render services to Rhode Islanders.

    This is the reason I choose not to get involved with the politics of vaping. It makes me so angry.

    My major concern is taxes. If they're building a database of products consumed by Rhode Islanders. The next logical step would be to tax it. Then it gets really nerve-racking because what exactly is an e cig. Is it the battery, the carto/tank, the juice itself, the drip-tip........ Cigarettes here are 10 bucks a pack, just think what they could get in taxes from all those individual components. Scary.
