NAPNAP Applauds Passage of the “Child Nicotine Poisoning Prevention Act of 2015”

President Barack Obama signed into law January 28 legislation requiring manufacturers to put childproof caps on bottles of liquid nicotine sold commercially for use in e-cigarettes. NAPNAP supported the “Child Nicotine Poisoning Prevention Act of 2015” (S. 142), which requires child-resistant packaging for any liquid nicotine vial sold in the U.S., passed the Senate by unanimous consent in December and was approved by the House in January by voice vote.

We expressed our opinion in an official statement in February 2015 and worked with child health partners throughout the year to advocate for this important legislation.
