College Station City Council Delays Action on Ban of Electronic Cigarettes

By  | 

College Station, TX After a public hearing Monday night, the College Station City Council voted unanimously to defer an ordinance regulating electronic cigarettes until the Sept. 11 council meeting.

The proposed regulations would prohibit minors (17 years old and younger) from purchasing or possessing e-cigarettes and would also ban the use of e-cigarettes where tobacco smoking isn’t allowed.

A motion by Councilmember James Benham to pass the ordinance with only the restrictions on minors failed by a 5-2 vote.
