E-cigarette use is on the rise in Minnesota, and many local communities are seeing an increase in e-cigarette, or "vape," shops. Despite new statewide restrictions on e-cigarette use, local communities can do much more to regulate e-cigarette use. Participants will discuss Minnesota's new law, and what local communities can do to increase public awareness and support successful implementation. Participants will also learn about innovative strategies to strengthen e-cigarette restrictions at the local level, and curb e-cigarette use among youth.
