North Carolina is the latest state to jump on the electronic cigarette warning label bandwagon.
The bill, introduced by two state senators, would make it a Class A1 misdemeanor to sell e-liquid products without child resistance packaging and warning labels, the Winston-Salem Journal reported.
A number of states are taking action themselves when it comes to e-liquid products, which are not regulated by the FDA.
Sponsors of the bill cited an increase in child-related poisoning incidents related to e-liquid products, as well as a concern about "bootleggers."
"We’re concerned about the bootleggers of these liquids who are selling product without warning labels, either from recipes they make themselves or they get from suppliers,” said Republican Stan Bingham, a co-sponsor of the bill told the newspaper.
The Winston-Salem Journal spoke with a few local stores that sold tobacco products, many of which seemed to support the legislation.
"In my opinion, making these restrictions into law is a good thing because there are parents who smoke these products who are not as careful around their children as they should be,” Cody Benge, a sales associate at Vape Oasis, told the newspaper.
