E-cigarettes and vaping soon to be banned in some Boise areas

 

E-cigarettes and vaping will soon be banned in the same places as traditional cigarettes in Boise.

On Tuesday night, Boise City Council voted unanimously in favor of moving ahead with an ordinance that would add the increasingly popular devices to the city’s Smokefree Air Act and ban their use in many public areas.

This includes bars, private clubs, near public transportation areas, on public property and at the Grove Plaza.

The Idaho Press reports, it would also ban their use on Eighth Street between Bannock and Main streets and within 20 feet of a public building in outdoor ticket and service lines.

The change would also ban e-cigarettes and vapes in all public parks and within 20 feet of the Boise Greenbelt, except in designated areas in Ann Morrison and Julia Davis parks as well as the Warm Springs Golf Course.
