New Law Requires Child-Proof Packaging, Nicotine Labeling For Electronic Cigarette Fluids


Press Release:

 RALEIGH, N.C.     North Carolina is requiring new packaging and label requirements on electronic cigarette products sold in the state, effective Dec. 1.

 Electronic cigarette refill fluids are to be sold in child-proof packaging with labels to alert consumers if the product contains nicotine, the addictive component in tobacco.

 Electronic cigarettes, also known as e-cigarettes, vapes, mods, e-hookah and hookah pens, are battery-powered devices that heat a liquid solution — sometimes containing nicotine — into an aerosol inhaled by the user.

 The Carolinas Poison Center has noted a steady increase in calls related to children accessing e-cigarette nicotine liquids since the products were introduced.

 North Carolina residents who want free help to quit tobacco use, including e-cigarette addiction, can contact QuitlineNC at 1-800-Quit-Now (1-800-784-8669) or, in Spanish, 1-800-Dejelo-Ya (1-800-335-3569).
