SULPHUR SMOKE-FREE ORDINANCE
The City of Sulphur, Louisiana has recently passed a Smoke Free Ordinance which includes Vapor Products/Electronic Cigarettes in its language. Effective since July 12, 2015, vaping has been banned in all enclosed areas, excluding vape shops but including all other buildings as well as all city operated vehicles and buildings, which includes all outdoor property adjacent to such buildings, and vapers must remain 5 feet away from any secondary entrances and 25 feet away from all main entrances. For both customers and business owners, fines for breaking this new law range from $100 for a first violation to $500 for a third. LAECR Representatives are currently reaching out to Sulpher lawmakers in an attempt to remedy this situation.
