L.A. City Council Votes to Limit the Use of E-Cigarettes

The ban would prohibit the use of e-cigarettes in almost every workplace and many outdoor locations.

The L.A. City Council unanimously voted Tuesday to ban e-cigarette use, also known as "vaping."

The new regulations would ban the smoking of electronic cigarettes in public parks, most work sites, certain beaches, restaurants, bars, and night clubs.

Prior to the unanimous vote, the council held a very emotional debate which included deep concerns from citizens, experts, and the councilmen themselves.

The next step for the regulations will be approval from Mayor Eric Garcetti.


Communism at its finest once again in CA!! Bunch of bullshit. Fuk the council!! This is the USA!

Some doctors now are recommending e cigs as a healthier alternative to tobacco cigarettes. Wouldn't it make sense to encourage their use rather than to limit where they can be used. There really is not the concern regarding second hand smoke with them.

I wonder if that hypocritical blowhard in the first video would support anything that would attract young person to drinking alcohol. Would he rather see current smokers continue to smoke cigarettes and end up dying a horrible death? Ignorance isn't's just ignorance.

Finally! +1 vote from me!
