SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. - San Francisco is set to become the first city in the United States to ban the sale and distribution of E-cigarettes.

The city's board of supervisors is slated to vote and pass the measure on Tuesday. 

The ordinance would ban the sale of e-cigarettes and flavored tobacco products in brick and mortar stores, as well as online when shopping to addresses in San Francisco. 

The ordinance will be in place until the FDA approves marketing regulations on the products. 

However, people 21 years or older can still use e-cigarettes.
