MARION, Ind. (WTHR) — Grant County may soon have a smoking ban.

The health board gave the OK to an ordinance that would ban smoking inside bars and public places across Grant County.

Unlike another ban proposed last year, this ordinance would also include e-cigarettes and vape pens and would allow smoking establishments to file for exemptions.

County commissioners would have to approve it before it becomes official. Their next meeting is May 6, 2019.
