Bill banning nicotine products in schools heads to state Senate

The state House of Representatives unanimously passed a bill Tuesday that would prevent nicotine products at all Pennsylvania schools.

Along with cigarette smoking, the Mullery bill would add e-cigarettes, cigars, chewing tobacco, and other nicotine products to be prohibited on school grounds.

The U.S. surgeon general says that nearly three in five high school students use e-cigarettes.

A total of 90% of adult smokers reportedly picked up the habit as teenagers.

The bill heads to the state Senate for consideration.
