Gore’s organization supports the use of e-cigarettes as an alternative to tobacco products.
Ada officials are also taking steps to limit the use of smoking devices, including e-cigarettes.
In October, the Ada City Council voted to ban tobacco products and e-cigarettes on city-owned property, including indoor and outdoor recreation areas. The ban also applies to paths in public parks, such as Wintersmith Park, but it does not prevent people from smoking on sidewalks and streets.
Earlier this month, the city outlawed the distribution of tobacco products and e-cigarettes within 300 feet of a playground, school or other zone for children. The ordinance also banned businesses from selling those products to people younger than 18.
At the same time, the city barred businesses from allowing customers to access tobacco products or e-cigarettes without assistance from the owner or an employee. That ban does not apply to businesses that are off limits to people under 18.
