The Board of Commissioners for Multnomah County has voted to restrict the sale of e-cigarettes to minors, and prohibit the use of e-cigarettes in business places where traditional smoking is already banned.
The ordinance will not exempt vape shops from the smoking ban, a stipulation that several people testifying at City Hall claimed to be unfair due to the need for consumers to try out products within vape shops.
The ordinance will go into effect in thirty days, on April 5th.
