Bloomington places restrictions on e-cigs, cigars

The Bloomington City Council has passed a new ordinance that places stricter regulations on the use of electronic cigarettes and sale of cheap cigars.

The council voted unanimously to ban e-cigarettes in most public places, as well as sampling in stores where the devices are sold. The council also moved to discourage the sale of individual cigars, which health officials say are popular among young people. The Star Tribune reported the new ordinance now requires cheap cigars to be sold in packages of five or more, unless the cigars cost more than $2.60 apiece.

Council members were joined by health officials in their opposition of e-cigarettes due to potential health risks. A representative from a coalition of health organizations said the proposals were simply common sense.

  1. probably the dumbest move that could possibly be made. yeah how about place more restrictions or tax on CIGARETTES if the worry is for the health of the people then why not take out the #1 tobacco related problem?! because of the money. why make restrictions on the thing that is helping people quit the terrible cancer sticks. basically these people signed off on a plan to lose a whole lot of cash for a whole lot of businesses. if anyone of them even remotely cares about the peoples health they would address cigarettes initially! but that wont happen because all those people care about is MONEY
