FARGO (KFGO-AM) -- Even if they don't emit smoke, those trendy e-cigarettes that are becoming more popular, aren't allowed in bars, restaurants and other public places in North Dakota.

Holly Scott of Fargo-Cass Public Health says they're starting to get complaints of people using the devices to "vape" indoors.

The statewide Smoke-Free law in North Dakota prohibits use of electronic cigarette in all of the same places a traditional cigarette is prohibited. Scott says some people may be confused because Minnesota's smoke-free law doesn't ban e-cigarettes.

Minnesota lawmakers are deciding how to proceed on e-cigarettes after Governor Dayton said he didn't feel comfortable putting them in the same category as conventional cigarettes.
