BATON ROUGE - A bill to ban the sale of electronic cigarettes to anyone under the age of 18 has made it through the Louisiana Legislature.

The Senate passed the bill 34-0 Thursday. It outlaws sales of e-cigarettes, vaporizers, and other alternative nicotine products to minors, just like cigarettes.

The bill now heads to the governor's desk for signature.

E-cigarettes and vaporizers use puffs of aerosol and sometimes contain flavors like fruit, mint, or chocolate.
