Lincoln, Neb.-- Forty attorneys general, not including Nebraska's Jon Bruning, are calling on the FDA to place tough restrictions on the popular e-cigarette.
Currently, in Nebraska there isn't an age limit on buying the e-cigarettes.
"It has nicotine in it so I consider it a tobacco product in my opinion," said Discount Depot owner Robb Bohy.
At the Discount Depot they sell three types of these e-cigs, but he says he doesn't sell them to young teens because on the packaging it says to not sell to minors.
"A lot of these will say on them to not to sell to minors," said Bohy.
Senator Colby Coash will be on the committee discussing the sale of the e-cigs and says he'll look over the options.
"Our responsibility is to keep up with trends and this is something that's been bought to our attention so we're going to explore the issue," said Coash.
Aaron Guenter is the co-owner of GNS Vapor and that's all his business is, selling the e-cigarettes. He says he already doesn't sell to minors.
"Our policy since day one you have to be 18 to buy our products we feel that even though it is just a nicotine product you still need to be 18," said Guenter.
Guenter is actually in favor of more restrictions.
"I started smoking when I was a teenager and regulation needs to be there.I think we need to keep them out of the hands of minors," said Guenter.
Even if there is no law put in place he'll stick to his guns and not sell these e-cigs to minors.
"Even though without the nicotine we still stood out ground and we not going to sell anything out of our shop unless you're 18," said Guenter.
Coash says there's many things to keep in mind when it comes to minors buying them.
"There certainly are health considerations and keeping an eye on the healthy constituents is part of our role and so one of the things we'll be looking at during this testimony is the impact on health. Health is sometimes a good reason to regulate things sometimes it's not but that's certainly going to be a consideration," said Coash.
Bruning's office sent a statement to 10/11 saying, "We're not inclined to insist on federal regulation of a product before there is evidence that regulation is warranted. Stopping smoking is the number one thing an individual can do to improve their health. We want alternative nicotine products to be available to help those who are ready to live healthier lives."
The legislative general affairs committee will take this policy up on Oct. 4.
