Guam seeks ban on e-smoking or vaping in public places to help prevent illegal pot use

Guam could see a ban in the use of electronic smoking devices, or vaping, in public places if a bill to be introduced on Monday becomes law.

Marijuana was legalized for recreational use among adults in April, but use in public places remains illegal under Guam law, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says e-cigarettes can be used to deliver marijuana and other drugs.

Sen. Amanda Shelton, D-Asan, said there are currently no laws on Guam to prohibit using e-cigarettes in public places.

Shelton said she is introducing Bill 138 on Monday, with the rest of the 35th Legislature as co-sponsors, that would amend the Natasha Protection Act of 2005, to include the use of electronic smoking devices.
