Ordinance would include e-cigarettes with Minnesota Clean Indoor Air Act
At the recent Ramsey County Board public hearing on an ordinance that would ban the indoor use of e-cigarettes in the county where smoking is already prohibited, speakers were 8-0 in favor of the ban.
The Sept. 8 board meeting was the second reading of the draft ordinance that would group e-cigarettes, the use of which is commonly called vaping, with other smoked tobacco products that are regulated under the Minnesota Clean Indoor Air Act.
