Ban e-cig sales to minors

A Lake Country father is outraged that his 12-year-old son was able to purchase an e-cigarette at a nearby store.

He says the e-cigarettes are dangerous, they promote smoking in youth and stores should butt out the policy of selling them to minors.

The law allows the sales of non-nicotine e-cigarettes to all ages, but BC’s Medical Health Officer Dr. Perry Kendall wants that changed.

Dr. Kendall completely agrees with Brett and feels the e-cigarettes are not safe for kids.

What do you think? Should there be a ban on selling e-cigarettes to minors?
