Texas Cities Implementing Bans on E-cigarette in Public Places


Multiple cities in Texas have banned e-cigarette use in public places, prompting Dallas officials to consider a similar measure.

According to a report from Elmanana on November 7th, multiple cities in the state of Texas, USA, have banned the use of e-cigarettes in public places. A citizens committee in Dallas has suggested that the authorities follow suit with this measure already implemented in other major cities in the state. Consequently, it is possible that e-cigarette smoking may be prohibited in public places in Dallas.

According to reports, this measure aims to protect public health and mitigate the potential harm from e-cigarette smoke on vulnerable populations.

Previously, the cities of Austin and Houston in Texas had implemented bans on the use of e-cigarettes in public places.

In 2017, the Austin City Council approved an amendment to a 2005 ordinance that restricted smoking in public places such as parks, bars, and restaurants, including city buildings and workplaces. In 2022, the Houston City Council decided to prohibit the use of e-cigarettes within 25 feet of indoor public places or workplaces, building entrances or exits, outdoor sports stadiums, and public transportation stations, along with any other devices that use aerosols.

Despite numerous cities imposing strict regulations and bans on e-cigarettes and their usage, the sales and usage of e-cigarettes continue to grow in the state of Texas, with the market primarily targeting teenagers through promotional and advertising efforts.
