Washington state mulls steep tax, other restrictions on e-cigarettes

The bill is the latest effort by lawmakers across the country to address concerns over the health impacts of e-cigarettes, also known as vapor cigarettes or vapes, which are not lit like regular cigarettes, but do generally release nicotine in a heated liquid.
