     3  are amended to read as follows:
     4    Distribution  of  tobacco  products,  electronic  cigarettes or herbal
     5  cigarettes without charge.
     6    4. No person engaged in the business of selling or otherwise  distrib-
     7  uting  electronic  cigarettes  for  commercial purposes, or any agent or
     8  employee of such person, shall knowingly, in furtherance of  such  busi-
     9  ness,  distribute  without charge any electronic cigarettes to any indi-
    10  vidual under eighteen years of age.
    11    5. The distribution of tobacco products or herbal cigarettes  pursuant
    12  to subdivision two of this section or the distribution without charge of
