SACRAMENTO (CBS / AP) — A California state lawmaker has introduced legislation that would ban the use of increasingly popular electronic cigarettes in public spaces.
SB140 by Sen. Mark Leno, D-San Francisco, would classify the devices that heat liquid nicotine into vapor as tobacco products similar to cigarettes. That would prohibit Californians from using the devices in restaurants, buses, hospitals and other places they cannot smoke.
