HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) -- Reno County commissioners have approved a ban on all electronic cigarettes in county buildings and vehicles because people might put illegal substances in them.

KWBW radio reports commissioners felt it would take too much time to police each individual person who uses the devices, so they decided to ban them altogether.

The commission's vote on Tuesday applies to county employees and members of the public in county buildings.

The county's smoking policy allows people to light up outside county buildings at least 10 feet from entrances, operable windows or ventilation systems leading into the facilities.
