Earlier this year, the Charter Township of Canton Board of Trustees approved an amendment to the Township ordinance prohibiting minors from possessing tobacco products to include e-cigarettes, vapor products, and nicotine products (Section 46-506 of the Code of Ordinances). What this means is that if you are under 18 and vaping or in possession of vaping paraphernalia, you are committing a misdemeanor crime.
The consequences are a $50 fine, community service hours (that increase with every subsequent offense), and participation in a health promotion and risk reduction assessment program. If you commit this misdemeanor in the Canton Public Library, you also risk being suspended from the library. (Note that providing vapor products or alternative nicotine products to a person under age 18 is also illegal; see Section 46-505 of the Code of Ordinances.)
