Should e-cigarettes be regulated like tobacco in Minnesota?

ST. PAUL, Minn. (KMSP) -

Should e-cigarettes be regulated like regular tobacco? That's a question Minnesota lawmakers are grappling with this legislative session.

Hearings on a pair of new bills were held Tuesday at the Capitol. One of the bills would classify e-cigarettes under the state's existing indoor air law, meaning they would be banned inside public places.

Another bill would specifically ban e-cigs from schools and gives cities greater power to set rules for e-cigarette sales.

Several other e-cigarette bills have also been introduced this session.
