List Rules E-cigs banned! (Oh, L.A., you're so silly.) Vote up the real dangers Angelenos are facing.
In March 2014, Los Angeles City Council voted to ban E-Cigarettes. They are now effectively treated the same as traditional cigarettes, and their use is banned in clubs, bars, on beaches, in parks, in many office buildings, in markets, restaurants, and in outdoor dining areas within L.A. city limits.
The debate over the safety of e-cigarettes is still raging, but are e-cigs really the most dangerous thing the L.A. city government should be dealing with? There are plenty of much more dangerous concerns in the city of angels. L.A. has the worst traffic in the country, and new research has shown the smog-filled air is often more toxic than a few puffs on the ol' e-cig! Why not do something about that?
This list proves there are many, many things in Los Angeles that are way more dangerous than e-cigarettes. Hipsters, Kardashians, and road rage, oh my! Take a look at the real dangers that come with life in Los Angeles and vote up what you think is really the most hazardous to your health.
