New city laws governing the sale of electronic cigarettes in Los Cerritos, Long Beach, California will go into effect in late November after leaders approved the measures.
One ordinance bans all new electronic cigarette business (the city’s one e-cigarette business will be grandfathered in), and another ordinance requires all businesses, such as gas stations and convenience stores, that sell e-cigarettes as a secondary product to obtain a tobacco retail license.
In a 5-to-0 vote, the City Council unanimously approved the ordinances at Thursday’s meeting. Both of them will go into effect 30 days after approval.
Nobody from the public spoke on the issue.
