A MAJORITY OF STATES HAVE LAWS THAT PROHIBIT MINORS FROM BUYING TOBACCO-PRODUCTS.  HOWEVER, MANY OF THOSE LAWS DON'T INCLUDE VAPOR-PRODUCTS THAT ARE KNOWN AS "E-CIGARETTES"--WHICH CONTAIN NICOTINE.  "REYNOLDS AMERICAN" BELIEVES THAT YOUTH-ACCESS TO "E-CIGARETTES" SHOULD BE RESTRICTED--JUST LIKE ANY OTHER TOBACCO-PRODUCT.  ITS OPERATING-COMPANIES ARE WORKING HARD TO PREVENT YOUTH TOBACCO-USE.  IT'S COMMITTED TO THE RESPONSIBLE SALE OF ALL TOBACCO-PRODUCTS, AND TOBACCO-DERIVED PRODUCTS--INCLUDING LIMITING YOUTH-ACCESS TO "E-CIGARETTES".  AND, IT'S CALLING ON GOVERNORS IN 22 STATES TO SUPPORT INITIATIVES THAT WOULD IMPOSE AN AGE-REQUIREMENT FOR THE PURCHASE OF "E-CIGARETTES"--SIMILAR TO THE AGE-RESTRICTIONS FOR OTHER TOBACCO-PRODUCTS.  TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THIS IMPORTANT EFFORT--AND HOW YOU CAN SUPPORT IT--GO TO "TRANSFORM-TOBACCO"-DOT-COM, AND CLICK ON THE "YOUTH TOBACCO PREVENTION"-SECTION.
