(LOS ANGELES) -- A public ban on smoking e-cigarettes will go into effect on Saturday after the Los Angeles City Council passed the ban last month.
According to ABC's Los Angeles affiliate KABC, e-cigarette use will be prohibited at farmers' markets, parks, recreational areas, beaches, indoor workplaces, outdoor dining areas and any other locations where tobacco smoking is banned.
Use of e-cigarettes will be permitted in "vaping" lounges and stores and during theatrical performances.
The city council cited potential health effects in approving the ban.
