San Francisco became the first major US city to effectively ban the sale and manufacture of electronic cigarettes. The city's legislature unanimously approved an ordinance which backers said was necessary due to the "significant public health consequences" of a "dramatic surge" in vaping among youths. San Francisco is home to market-leading e-cigarette maker Juul. Cigarettes do not contain the cancer-causing products found in tobacco.
