According to the South Carolina Radio Network, a law signed by Gov. Nikki Haley in June of 2014, bans the sale of e-cigarettes to minors. Consequences for minors in possession of tobacco products are civil fines, or they can choose to complete a tobacco education class. A business that sells illegally faces steeper fines - up to $400 for repeat offenses. Here are the basic tobacco laws:
South Carolina smoking law states that it is unlawful for any person under the age of 18 to purchase, attempt to purchase, possess or attempt to possess tobacco or tobacco products; this includes falsifying one’s age to obtain tobacco. S.C. CODE ANN. § 16-17-500
