Indoor Vaping Banned in Los Angeles


Soon We Will Be Seeing More Of These Signs Around
Does This Mean I Can Vape With Zero Nicotine Juices?

It’s official, just this month the L.A. City Council voted to ban vapin indoors. This means people who quit or are trying to quit smoking by vaping will have to continuously face their demons while sharing the smoking area with smokers, fighting the temptation with second hand smoke blowing in their face. Good job L.A. City Council!

According to this article, the city council voted unanimously on banning vaping where smoking was prohibited. The argument was children might confuse vaping with smoking, and think it is okay to do so, an argument I agree with completely.

However, they also banned vaping in bars and other adult environments as well. What gives? There are no children in bars, and adults know the difference between vaping and smoking. So why the ban on smoking indoors in the company of full grown people?

This just shows how narrow-minded our officials when it comes to vaping (and a whole lot of other things for that matter). We know our brothers and sisters in Europe are going through so much more when it comes to vaping regulations, but it seems like legislators are starting to follow suit here in America.

This could have been our way of showing the world that vaping is a safer alternative to smoking. If the lawmakers here would be more lenient, we could show the world that vaping isn’t all that bad and all of this is just paranoia. Kind of like what Amsterdam did for Marijuana. They proved that weed, when regulated properly, is a lot more beneficial than having a hard stance against it.

Vaping is still in its infancy, and the more we educate and inform people, the better the understanding there will be about these wonderful devices.

Former smoker turned vaper since 2013. I blog about questions that I and others might have about vaping. All I can say is it's a better alternative to cigarettes, nicotine gum, patches or medication, no matter what the Big Tobacco backed media says!

    1. I believe people fear what they don’t know. Vaping is relatively new, and it was marketed as an alternative to smoking so people tend to associate it with smoking. It’s just unfair that lawmakers are treating it like smoking. And to answer your question Mike, I don’t know. I just hope people like you and me, and the others who put out blogs and videos on vaping can really educate people who are totally misinformed about vaping.
