S.F. Supervisors Approve New Restrictions on E-Cigarettes
On Tuesday, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors unanimously voted to apply the same regulations that govern regular tobacco products to electronic cigarettes. The decision means that e-cigarettes will be banned from use in most public locations, retailers will have to obtain a special permit to sell the devices and e-cigarettes cannot be sold where tobacco sales are banned, such as pharmacies.
