lA father in British Columbia is furious after his 11-year-old son was able to purchase an electronic cigarette from a kiosk in a local mall.  Reportedly, the son purchased a blueberry flavored no-nicotine e-cig for $10.

Unlike previous circumstances like these, the individual that sold the product isn’t calling the sale an oversight — and is rather not bothered by the sale as it wasn’t illegal.  According to an interview with the kiosk owner, Jasper Lee, the device doesn’t contain nicotine he sees no problem selling it to anyone who wants to buy one.  He also suggests that other shops do the exact same.

“Every store is the same,” Lee said. “It’s not just me.”

This is undoubtedly going to be a point of contention for e-cig community members.  Many get pretty hot under the collar when business owners and e-cig sellers do things that bring unnecessary attention to the sector — especially concerning kids.  One company drew a bit of flak this past Christmas when it used Santa Claus to sell its electronic cigarettes.

Even shops “accidentally” selling electronic cigarettes to minors in places where it isn’t illegal tends to be frowned upon.  The point is to avoid looking like the industry is doing all the same things the tobacco industry used to do.  The industry doesn’t need to be giving its opponents even more excuses to claim it is targeting teens with its products.

    It’s a shame some retailers do not see that it’s not right from a moral point off view to sell a product that makes it look like one is smoking.

    Even though I’d rather would have my children use this than the real thing, that doesn’t mean children should be able to get it this easily.

    As a retail owner myself we require carding even though this isn’t fixed by law. Responsibility should be with us ‘the adults’.
