FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Anyone younger than 18 would be barred from buying electronic cigarettes in Kentucky under a bill the state Legislature has approved.

The Senate gave the bill final approval on Monday. It will become law unless Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear vetoes it.

Teenagers under 18 are already banned from buying tobacco products in Kentucky. This bill updates that ban to include electronic cigarettes.

Electronic cigarettes resemble traditional cigarettes, except they are battery powered and the person inhales a vapor instead of smoke.

The ban would prohibit anyone under 18 from buying, possessing or using electronic cigarettes.
