County Approves New Vaping Restrictions

E-Cigarettes and Vapes Now Treated Like Traditional Smoking Devices


The Santa Barbara Board of Supervisors recently approved amendments to the county’s Smoking, Tobacco Product and Electronic Smoking Device Control Ordinance, which place e-cigarettes and vapes under the same restrictions as conventional smoking devices. More outdoor places — dining areas, public events, and county-owned locations — will be off limits to both traditional smoking and the use of electronic smoking devices (ESDs).
