MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont Attorney General T.J. Donovan says eight online sellers of electronic cigarettes will pay a total of more than $145,700 in civil penalties to Vermont in settlements for violations of the state’s delivery sales ban and its Consumer Protection Act.

It became illegal to sell electronic cigarettes and related “vaping” products over the internet to Vermont consumers on July 1, 2019.

The Vermont attorney general’s office said it has reached settlements with 21 online sellers of electronic cigarettes, totaling $618,250 since December 2020.
