Attention dorks who smoke vaporized nicotine inside bars and clubs: you can't do that anymore. At least not in the city of L.A.

A city council decree bans e-cigarettes as of today in all the same places that cigarettes are banned - any indoor workplace like bars and restaurants, as well as parks and beaches. However, you can still vape with other vapers in vape stores and vape lounges, similar to how cigar lounges and hookah bars are regulated, City News Service says.

While we won't miss vapey mist being blown into our faces at rock shows, we have to admit that e-cigarettes were at least a good way for annoying people to distinguish themselves so we could avoid them.
