The Decatur City School board voted Monday to take the first step toward amending a policy regarding tobacco and tobacco related products.
The board voted to add electronic cigarette to the police that bans cigarettes and smokeless tobacco on school property and at school events.
An electronic cigarette, known as an e-cig, is a device that simulates smoking using a liquid. In most cases, the liquid has nicotine, but it doesn’t have to use that product to be considered an electronic cigarette. The liquid is vaporized and the process is called “vaping.”
The board will take input from the public, and make the final vote to ban electronic cigarettes in a month.
