L.A. Community College District Bans E-Cigarettes

The Los Angeles Community College District has added its nine campuses to the growing list of places in the Los Angeles area where electronic cigarette use is restricted.

The district’s board of trustees last week voted unanimously to restrict the activity, referred to as “vaping,” the same way it does tobacco smoking on campus — by limiting it to a maximum of four places per campus.

LACCD spokesman Steve Springer said the areas where vaping and smoking are allowed varies at each campus.

The district’s non-smoking policy, which was amended to apply to “comparable, personal, vapor-generating devices,” went into effect immediately following the board’s vote, Springer said.
