The Kentucky Senate has passed a bill that would ban the sale of electronic cigarettes to minors.

Republican Sen. Paul Hornback says his bill is aimed at protecting youngsters from gaining access to the adult products.
Hornback, a Shelby County tobacco farmer, says the measure carries the same rules that apply in banning youth access to tobacco products.

The bill cleared the Senate on a 36-2 vote Thursday and now goes to the House.

A similar bill has been introduced in the House.

E-cigarettes are battery-powered devices resembling traditional cigarettes.

They heat a liquid solution, creating vapor that users inhale to get nicotine without the smoke of regular cigarettes
