The ordinance prohibits vaping in the same manner and places where smoking tobacco is prohibited, which includes city facilities and in certain public places and places of employment.

With more reports nationally of deaths and lung-related injuries likely linked to vaping, Mesa residents have been contacting Mayor John Giles and City Council expressing concerns about vaping, the unknown long-term health impacts, second-hand exposure in public places and possible health effects for youth.
