W.Va. delegate to propose mandatory warning signage bill for businesses selling vape products
A state delegate is proposing mandatory vaping product warning signage be placed at businesses where they're sold or it could face a fine of up to $500.
Delegate Rodney Pyles, (D) Monongalia-51, says he was encouraged to draw up a bill regarding vaping after hearing Senator Bob Beach talk about vaping issues as a state health emergency.
The proposed bill, which would not be introduced until January and serves as a middle ground for those who smoke e-cigarettes as a way to fight a nicotine addiction.
Pyles says he is not a fan of a full on e-cigarette ban.
If the bill passes after introduction and a business does not post the required signage, the business could face up to a $500 fine.
