One East Texas Town May Ban e-Cigarettes
E-cigarettes are becoming more and more popular, and another East Texas Town may try to put a damper on that national trend.
Nacogdoches is thinking about moving toward a ban on e-cigarettes, as more towns across our neck of the woods, and across the state and country, continue to research the effects of using them. E-cigarettes create a vapor that is inhaled, and some call it "vaping."
Nacogdoches has an anti-smoking ordinance in place, and KTRE reports some restaurants have asked the city if they're in violation of that ordinance when a customer lights up an e-cig. The answer is no. So far. But e-cigarettes could be added to the anti-smoking ordinance in the coming weeks.
The Nacogdoches city council will talk about it tonight, but it's not clear if they'll make a final decision. An e-cigarette ban is already in place in Lufkin.
