COLUMBUS, Ind. (WTHR) — The mayor of Columbus signed an ordinance on Thursday that will ban public vaping to the city.

The ordinance will go into effect on October 19.

It is an expansion on the ban on smoking and adds e-cigarettes and vape pens.

Essentially, any area where smoking is not permitted, vaping will not be permitted.

The ordinance does not currently exempt the city's vape shops from the ban, but that could happen before the ban takes effect.
