Carrollton Imposes Tough Restrictions on E-Cigarette Users

View Comments ()



    The Carrollton City Council passed an ordinance last month that places tough restrictions on smokers of electronic cigarettes.

    Those who use e-cigarettes are now prohibited from smoking inside public places or within 20 feet of retail and restaurants. The ordinance also prohibits smoking in libraries, museums, health care facilities, public restrooms, indoor and outdoor theaters, day care centers, gas stations and conference rooms.

    The ordinance, which was passed April 15 and put into effect April 21, forbids selling the product to those younger than 18 as well as prohibiting the sale of e-cigarette devices and liquid in vending machines.

    The penalty for violating the new ban is a fine up to $2,000.
