BEDFORD (CBSDFW.COM) — The City of Bedford has banned the use of e-cigarettes in all non-smoking areas and is prohibiting the sale of related products to minors.

City council members approved the new ordinance on Thursday. The ordinance will take effect in the coming weeks and will treat e-cigarettes the same as most tobacco products.

The ban means the battery operated devices will not be allowed in locations including, but not limited to, “elevators, hospitals and health care facilities, retail stores, movie theaters and all city facilities,” according to the city.

Proof of identification will be required when buying electronic cigarettes or liquid nicotine. Consumers must be 18 or older to purchase the products.

It will also be a criminally negligent offense for a retailer to sell e-cigarettes to a minor, or sell it to an individual who intends to deliver them to a minor.

The City of Rockwall also banned the sale of all e-cigarette items to minors in January.
