DOVER, N.H. (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 (https://bit.ly/1RrVlD4 ) 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.
