Lakewood bans e-cigarettes in public

The Lakewood city council voted unanimously Monday night to prohibit the use of electronic smoking devices in and around public places, becoming the latest Colorado city to enact an e-cigarette ban.

Durango and Edgewater already have similar bans in place. Commerce City, Ft. Collins and Golden are considering measures.

The Lakewood ban is modeled after the current restrictions on cigarette smoking, including a 25-foot buffer zone around building entrances. It allows people to smoke on outdoor patios.
