Cleveland Bans E-Cigarettes In Public Places

The Cleveland City Council, in a unanimous vote late Wednesday agreed to expand a 2011 ordinance against tobacco smoking in public places to e-cigarettes, IdeaStream reported.
The Ohio-based city had already banned cigarette smoking in publicly-owned outdoor areas such as parks, community gardens, and within 150 feet of public places like City Hall and the convention center. But now those rules also apply to electronic cigarettes.
Cleveland follows in the footsteps of other major cities that have banned e-cigarettes, including New York and Chicago.
