ST. PAUL, MN (KDAL) - New legislation takes effect on July 1st in Minnesota that prohibits e-cigarette use in some public places including government buildings, public schools and most health care facilities.  The new law also requires retailers selling e-cigarettes to keep them behind the counter and also requires a license.  Starting in January of next year, the law will require child resistant packaging of the e-cigarette liquids sold in Minnesota.  Nationally, e-cigarette use by youth has more than doubled from 2011 to 2012.
