LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Indiana's top cop says he is cracking down to keep e-cigarettes out of the hands of youth.

The state attorney general and lawmakers are expected to propose tighter regulations and new taxes on e-cigs Friday afternoon over concerns that more youth are using them.

Selling e-cigarettes to those under 18 is illegal in Indiana, but the attorney general is concerned the federal government hasn't done enough to regulate them.
