BOSTON (AP) - Attorney General Maura Healey says a California-based online e-cigarette retailer violated Massachusetts laws regulating the sale and advertisement of tobacco products.

A letter sent by the Democrat orders Kilo E-Liquids to stop selling their products online in Massachusetts until they can show they're in compliance with state laws.

The letter also bars the company from advertising vaping products on websites directed at young people.

Healey said Wednesday her office began investigating after receiving a complaint about an ad for Kilo's vaping products on an educational website frequented by K-12 students and teachers.

Investigators also determined Kilo doesn't adequately verify the age of customers purchasing vaping products.

The minimum age to purchase electronic smoking devices in Massachusetts is 21. Online retailers are required to verify a purchaser's age.

A message was left with Kilo.
