Los Angeles Passes Ban

As expected, a ban on electronic cigarettes wherever smoking is prohibited was passed Tuesday by the Los Angeles City Council. The ban will take effect in April.

“I will not support anything — anything — that might attract one new smoker.”
–Herb Wesson, City Council President

The vote was unanimous, and the new ordinance will be signed by Mayor Eric Garcetti, according to a spokesman from the mayor’s office.

An amendment which allows the use of electronic cigarettes in “vaping lounges” was passed along with the ordinance, though a measure which would have allowed vaping in bars was defeated 8-6.

    Unanimous. How about that for democracy when the majority of people oppose such restrictions?
