San Marcos tightens e-cig rules
SAN MARCOS — Add San Marcos to the list of local cities that have banned the use of electronic cigarettes wherever traditional smoking is not allowed.

The City Council on Tuesday night unanimously voted to amend two city ordinances to include e-cigarettes. The changes mean store owners must also keep the devices out of the reach of customers the same as conventional cigarettes.

“Absolutely I want to treat it like cigarettes,” Councilwoman Rebecca Jones said, adding that she is the mother of two teenagers and feels “very strongly” about the issue of e-cigarettes.

About 10 people, most from local groups targeting tobacco and other substances, spoke in favor of the changes,

"We need to protect kids from these products,” Debra Kelley, of the American Lung Association of California, said after the meeting.

In narrowing the places where e-cigarettes can be used, San Marcos joins most other North County cities including Carlsbad, Encinitas, Oceanside, Poway, Solana Beach, Del Mar and Vista. The cities of San Diego and El Cajon have also enacted tougher regulations, as has San Diego County.
