Nebraska Smoking Laws

In Nebraska, it is illegal to sell E-cigarettes to minors but adults have to be very careful when using these nicotine alternatives too. According to the department of health and human services, "last year, the Nebraska Regional Poison Center received 52 calls on e-cigarettes – (up from 5 in 2012)." Since the liquid vapor comes in a variety of fruit and candy flavors, children (under 5 years old) drink e-cigarette cartridge solutions and can have a toxic reaction. It is very important to be mindful about tobacco and e-cigarette products, especially around young children.

The Law

Nebraska smoking law states that it is unlawful for any person under the age of 18 to use tobacco or tobacco products. The minor may be free from prosecution if he or she furnishes evidence that convicts the person who sold or provided the tobacco products. Furthermore, it is also unlawful for said minor to misrepresent age in order to obtain tobacco. NEB. REV. STAT. § 28-1418 and NEB. REV. STAT. § 28-1427

The Penalties

In Nebraska, there are penalties in place to discourage minors from using or purchasing tobacco products. These penalties serve to enforce compliance with the state's regulations and protect the health and well-being of minors.

One of the key penalties for a minor who uses or purchases tobacco in Nebraska is a fine. The fine amount is set at $100, emphasizing the seriousness of underage tobacco use and sending a clear message about the legal consequences associated with such actions. This monetary penalty serves as a deterrent, discouraging minors from engaging in tobacco-related activities and encouraging them to adhere to the state's laws and regulations.

It is important to note that if a minor chooses not to pay the fine, they have the option to attend a court hearing to challenge the citation. This provision ensures that minors have an opportunity to present their case and contest the citation if they believe there are valid grounds to do so. By offering a fair and impartial process, Nebraska's legal system allows minors to exercise their rights and have their voices heard.

The imposition of a fine and the provision for attending a court hearing to challenge the citation underline the gravity of underage tobacco use in Nebraska. These penalties aim to create a sense of accountability and responsibility among minors, encouraging them to make informed choices that prioritize their health and well-being. By enforcing these penalties, Nebraska emphasizes the importance of complying with tobacco regulations and striving for a tobacco-free environment for minors.
