Bay Area Rapid Transit Considering E-Cigarette Ban
The Bay Area Rapid Transit Board has unanimously approved a measure that would ban the use of electronic cigarettes on its trains or in its stations. The American Lung Association pushed for the measure, but an e-cigarette industry spokesperson said it overreaches because it bans the devices on all BART property -- not just trains. A final vote on the ban will be held on Feb. 12.
