The Little Rock School District has begun placing informational stickers at the entrances of all public school campuses and buildings to indicate the ban on electronic or e-cigarettes. This was done in compliance with Act 1099, passed during 2013’s regular legislative session, prohibiting the use of e-cigarettes on all public school properties. In the act, e-cigarettes are defined as “electronic oral devices” which provide a vapor of nicotine or another substance used to simulate smoking. This restriction applies to all adults and all students.
Act 1451, also passed during the 2013 legislative session, prohibits minors from purchasing and possessing e-cigarettes. A detailed description of the acts is available on the Arkansas Legislature’s website at www.arkleg.state.ar.us.
