La. Lawmakers agree to ban vaping while a child’s in the car


The US Food and Drug Administration warned leading e-cigarette maker Juul Labs about illegally marketing its product as a safer alternative to cigarettes.

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Traveling with a child in the car? Louisiana lawmakers say you shouldn’t be vaping then. The House and Senate have given final passage to a bill that would ban the use of vaping devices in any vehicle with a child present. Louisiana law already prohibits drivers and passengers from smoking cigarettes, pipes or cigars if a child’s in the vehicle. The bill by Gretna Rep. Joe Marino adds vaping to that list. The House voted 80-19 for the measure. A 30-0 vote Friday in the Senate moved the bill to Gov. John Bel Edwards, who hasn’t objected to the bill.
