LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — The use of electronic cigarettes in most public places will be banned in Lafayette under an ordinance approved by City Council members.

The council voted unanimously Monday night in favor of changing its smoking ban ordinance to include vaping. It won't include bars where everyone is over 21 and that decide to permit smoking.

State law bans smoking in most public places, but doesn't address the electronic cigarettes that typically heat a liquid nicotine solution into vapor. Indianapolis, Greenwood and Bloomington are among Indiana cities that have restricted vaping.

Lafayette council President Ron Campbell says he's received complaints from several residents worried about the health dangers of vaping.
