Kenoi signs tobacco bill into law

By 67AM KPUA News

Mayor Billy Kenoi has signed Bill 135, which raises the legal age of sale for all tobacco products, including e-cigarettes in Hawai`i County to 21.

The ordinance will take effect on July 1, 2014 and will exempt people who reach the age of 18 before that date. Any person who distributes tobacco or electronic cigarette products to an underage customer will be subject to a fine of up to $2,000. Kenoi signed the measure into law during ceremonies Thursday at the West Hawai`i Civic Center.

Bill 135 won unanimous approval from the County Council in November on a 9-0 vote.
