Nacogdoches city council approves change to smoking ordinance to include vaping, e-cigs

NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - Nacogdoches City Council has voted to add electronic devices, such as vaporizers and e-cigarettes, to the city’s smoking ordinance.

The City of Nacogdoches first prohibited smoking in public places and workplaces in 2008; Tuesday’s decision added to the ordinance by including electronic devices as a means of reducing risks of second-hand smoke.

City planners will rewrite the current ordinance and send the draft to the city council for final approval before the ordinance goes into effect.
