CHARLOTTE, N.C., June 18, 2013

CHARLOTTE, N.C., June 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --blu eCigs, the electronic
cigarette brand widely known for superior style and quality, today announced
its support for a new law prohibiting the sale of electronic cigarettes to
minors in the State of South Carolina. The purchase or sale of electronic
cigarettes to people in South Carolina under age 18 will be illegal as a
result of legislation passed by the General Assembly and signed into law by
Governor Nikki Haley.

"blu eCigs strongly supports and advocates for legislation or regulation that
prevents the sale or distribution of electronic cigarettes to minors," said
Jim Raporte, president of blu eCigs. "The company is pleased that South
Carolina has joined the growing number of states who are adopting legislation
to prohibit the sale or distribution of electronic cigarettes to minors."

After Lorillard's acquisition of blu eCigs last year, the electronic cigarette
company made a commitment to take a leadership role in shaping how this
emerging category can be responsibly regulated.

Responsible e-cigarette manufacturers, including blu eCigs, already prohibit
the sale of e-cigarettes to minors through strict age-verification and third
party certification procedures on websites.
