The Quick Facts

  • Last week, San Francisco became the first major U.S. city to ban the sale of electronic cigarettes.
  • City lawmakers unanimously passed the measure, which prohibits the sale, manufacture and distribution of e-cigarettes on city property. 
  • The ban is set to go into effect in 30 days, and lawmakers say it will last until the FDA completes appropriate clinical trials and issues standards on e-cigarettes.
  • The measure specifically singled out the use of electronic cigarettes for presenting "significant public health consequence" to minors.
