A 4 On Your Side investigation has sparked a new law banning sales of electronic cigarettes to minors.

Our investigation showed how easy it is to buy electronic cigarettes in Albuquerque.

That prompted Mayor Richard Berry to push for a ban on sales to anyone under the age of 18.

Monday night, city councilors approved it, making Albuquerque the first city in the region to tighten control of e-cigs.
