Electronic Cigarettes Policy and Law Update Information

The procedure regarding the use of electronic cigarettes is outlined in the Garrett County Public Schools Student Handbook: Rights, Responsibilities, and Discipline. Please note, under “Tobacco” (page 41), which includes E-Cigarettes, possession and/or use of any device, electronic or otherwise, used to deliver any substance not medically prescribed in accordance with Policy and Procedure 472.12 and 472.13 is a level 2 offense. A report will be made to a law enforcement officer to request a citation, and to Juvenile Services, along with a referral to the MSAP (Maryland Student Assistance Program) team. Counseling or a cessation program may be used and/or an in-school intervention program for up to ten days.
Recently the 2018 Maryland General Assembly passed HB1094. This Bill makes changes to current tobacco and Electronic Nicotine Delivery System (ENDS) related statutes. Beginning October 1, 2018, a person under the age of 18 may be charged civilly for possessing an ENDS product. Vapes, electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes), or vaporizers are terms used to describe an electronic system used to smoke a noncombustible flavored solution often containing nicotine. HB1094 imposes penalties for minors using, possessing, obtaining, or attempting to obtain an ENDS product. If minors are found in possession or using an ENDS product, law enforcement may issue a civil citation to the minor and then forward it to the Department of Juvenile Services for further civil action. There is no set fine for the civil violation and any assessed penalties will be at the discretion of the Department of Juvenile Services. In addition to the civil citation, law enforcement will seize the ENDS from the minor and contact the minor's parent / guardian regarding a final disposition of the ENDS.
