Howard County Council Approves Bill to Ban Vaping in Public Places

The Howard County Council has voted unanimously to ban the use of electronic cigarettes in public places. As reported in The Baltimore Sun:

Introduced by Councilman Jon Weinstein, an Ellicott City Democrat, the bill builds on the county’s law against smoking in restaurants and bars, at outdoor athletic events and in amphitheaters, among other public places.

Howard led the state by going completely smoke-free in 2006, and five years later passed another milestone by becoming the first county in Maryland to ban smoking in parks.
