Last week, Hawaii’s state legislature introduced two bills that would ban the sale of e-cigarettes to minors and tax the devices at 70% of their wholesale price, the same rate as tobacco products. Like similar state proposals designed to regulate the smoking alternatives, Hawaii’s effort is well-intentioned but misguided. The state’s proposal is based on bad science and creates several unintended consequences.

The Hawaii legislature has put forth many bans on tobacco, if any of them pass, it will be a state that smoker’s can cross off thier list of "places to visit".
