Bay City Commissioners are preparing to adopt ordinance language prohibiting businesses or individuals from selling  e-cigarettes to minors or allowing possession of such products for those underage.

Public Safety Director Michael Cecchini  says local schools brought the  issue forward,
citing health concerns for students either “vaping” or putting  marijuana based t-h-c in the product. Cecchini added that punishments would start with a civil infraction and fine  before becoming a misdemeanor with a bigger fine for a third offense.

A second reading and Commission vote are expected April First following Monday’s first reading.
