BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Vaping with a child in the car soon will be illegal in Louisiana.
Louisiana law already prohibited drivers and passengers from smoking cigarettes, pipes or cigars if a child’s in the vehicle. A bill by Gretna Rep. Joe Marino, who has no party affiliation, adds vaping to that list.
Gov. John Bel Edwards announced Tuesday that he signed the measure into law. The new prohibition takes effect in August.
The House voted 80-19 for the measure in the regular session that ended June 1, while the Senate agreed 30-0.
