Following a period of public comment, earlier this month the Boston Public Health Commission approved rules that immediately treat electronic cigarettes as tobacco products.  This requires Boston retailers to obtain permits to sell e-cigarettes, bans e-cigarettes in the workplace and limits their sale to adults.  In the same action, the Commission banned the sale of low-cost individual cigars, requiring instead that they be sold in packages of at least four.
