Dover bans e-cigarettes in places where tobacco products are already prohibited

The Associated Press

DOVER (AP) — A New Hampshire city has voted to ban the use of electronic cigarettes where regular cigarettes are already prohibited.

Foster's Daily Democrat reports the Dover City Council voted unanimously on Wednesday to ban e-cigarettes in all locations where tobacco products are banned.

Tobacco products are currently banned from several places around the city including a park and on school grounds and athletic fields.

Advocates of the measure say it will eliminate the "negative influence" that e-cigarettes have on children.

Violators of the new ban could face fines of $50 for a first offense and $100 for subsequent offenses.
