Minnesota - anti-tobacco advocates going after dissolvables, e-cigarettes..

Camel Dissolvable Tobacco Products..April 14, 2010 - ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Anti-smoking advocates are going after tobacco strips that dissolve in the mouth and battery-operated e-cigarettes that deliver puffs of nicotine vapor. They rally Wednesday, April 14th at the Capitol for a ban on the sale of the products to youth. (U.S. e-cigarette imports banned indefinitely - ASH..)

A bill from Democratic Sen. Scott Dibble of Minneapolis would prohibit retailers from selling the products to minors. They also couldn't display the products next to candy or gum, and "little cigars" would be classified as cigarettes and regulated more stringently. Dibble's bill gets its first hearing Thursday, April 15th.

Advocates including ClearWay Minnesota and the American Heart Association say Minnesota's tobacco laws haven't kept up as cigarette companies develop new products. The state banned smoking in restaurants and bars in 2007.
