Montgomery Council OKs Bill Banning Public E-cigarette Use

Posted:

ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP)- The Montgomery County Council has approved a bill that will extend the ban on smoking in public places to electronic cigarettes.

The council passed the bill Tuesday, and it now goes to County Executive Ike Leggett for his signature. If he signs it, it would take effect 91 days after he signs.

If the bill becomes law, smoking e-cigars, e-hookahs, e-pipes and vape pens would also be illegal in the same places where smoking traditional cigarettes is banned.

The bill also bans retail outlets from selling certain liquid nicotine or liquid nicotine containers unless they are in packaging that makes it difficult for children to get into.
