The Estonian Social Ministry has completed and sent approvals of a draft law that will ban e-cigarettes for minors, reports Public Broadcasting. The bill forbids minors to “consume, acquire and own products that are used the similar way to tobacco products.”

This covers e-cigarettes, herbal cigarettes and different materials to replace hookah tobacco.

The change concerns all products used the same way as tobacco products, irrespective of their nicotine content. Also, products similar to tobacco products cannot be offered for sale, cannot be sold and advertised to minors.

E-cigarette sellers who operate in Estonia have claimed that they don’t offer their products to minors.
