E-cigarette regulations: Is KC next?
Last week, Chicago banned e-cigarette use in all places where cigarettes are restricted. Kansas City considered changes but they're waiting for the FDA.
“There's not a lot of information, there's not a lot of studies so they're looking at the pros and cons," Bill Snook of the Kansas City, Mo., Health Department said.
If the FDA proves e-cigarettes are harmful and enacts new regulations, Kansas City will need new ordinances.
