VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) - Clark County is expanding its electronic cigarette restrictions with Thursday’s passage of a ban on using the devices anywhere smoking is prohibited.

The Columbian reports (https://bit.ly/1GBNSY6) specialty vape shops with independent ventilation systems are the only exception to the new rule, which takes effect June 1.

Board of health members amended the original draft of the ordinance to exclude vape shops after customers and business owners provided feedback.

Minors in the county have been banned from buying electronic cigarettes since an ordinance was passed in June 2011.
