Los Angeles Moves to Ban E-Cigarettes at Most Public Places

scyther5/Thinkstock(LOS ANGELES) -- Lawmakers in Los Angeles have moved to pull the plug on electronic cigarette use in some public places across the city.

The Los Angeles City Council voted 14-0 on Tuesday to ban e-cigarette use at bars, nightclubs, restaurants and other public places where conventional cigarette smoking is also prohibited.

The ban on the use of e-cigarettes, also known as "vaping," still has to go to Mayor Eric Garcetti's desk for approval before it officially becomes law.

The proposed ban doesn't apply to vaping lounges and stores.

E-cigarette use is also banned in public places in New York City, Chicago and Washington, D.C.
