Missouri health officials follow up on youth vaping crack-down


MISSOURI–Missouri state agents are following up on an executive order to cut down on the use of vaping products among teens.

The Division of Alcohol and Tobacco Control will visit stores in certain counties to see if the retailers are following Missouri youth tobacco laws. That includes a ban on tobacco sales – including vaping products – to anyone under the age of 18.

Governor Mike Parson issued an executive order last month, focusing on vaping among young people.
