Beverly Hills City Council May Blanketly Ban E-Cigarettes Tonight

Beverly Hills City Council has an urgent matter at hand! At
tonight’s meeting, the council will consider an “interim urgency
ordinance” that will declare a “moratorium of the establishment and
further operation of any electronic cigarette retailer.”
Remarkably, they are giving retailers two weeks notice:

“In order to allow retailers to amortize any investment in
e-cigarettes made before the adoption of the ordinance, retailers
who purchased e-cigarettes for resale prior to the date of adoption
of the ordinance will be able to continue to sell such cigarettes
for a period of two weeks after the adoption of the ordinance.
Selling e-cigarettes beyond the two weeks is a misdemeanor and is
punishable by a fine not to exceed $1,000 or imprisonment for up to
six months, or both.”

Along with the suggested moratorium on vape shops, there is a
item that will extend all present smoking regulations to
electronic cigarettes. Read the rest of the proposed ordinance


Proponents of e-cigarettes fear that rash, local legislation
like this will set a precedent that will severly impact the
industry as a whole. For all the reasons that e-cigarettes
shouldn’t be regulated, watch
