Vaping ordinance approved; Prohibits minors from use

(Riverton, Wyo.) - Imposing a regulation on a business by a government entity is not popular, except in Tuesday night's case in Riverton. In the council discussions and subsequent readings of an ordinance prohibiting the use of vaping devices by those under 18-years-old, not one retailer spoke out against the new rule. Police Chief Mike Broadhead reported that all of the city's retailers who deal with Vapors already prohibit minors from buying the product. The original request to add vaping to a list of prohibited activities by minors was brought forth by the Prevention Management Organization of Fremont County. The memo from Broadhead to the council on the subject is copied below: [image: Inline image 2] [image: Inline image 1] The vote to approve the amended ordinance was unanimous. *Feature Image: No Smoking, No Vaping.
