Maybe they just need to enforce the laws they already have. At least in MD e-cigs are treated the same as any tobacco/ nicotine-containing product. Gotta be over 18, gotta show ID if I don't think...

I'm not sure of the weight, but way back in the mid 60's a dime bag measured 4 fingers wide across a standard sandwich bag. Lucky for me my supplier had larger fingers than I did.
