PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Philadelphia's ban on E-cigarettes in public places starts tonight at midnight.
The legislation prohibits the sale of e-cigarettes to minors and the use of e-cigarettes in workplaces, bars and restaurants.
The law also applies to vape pens, e-hookahs and e-cigars.
Businesses caught selling e-cigarettes or refilling cartridges to minors will be hit with a $250 ticket.
Philadelphia City Council voted 15-0 back in May to categorize e-cigarettes the same way that regular tobacco cigarettes are treated.
Similar restrictions are already in effect in cities including New York, Chicago and Los Angeles.
E-cigarette ban in Philadelphia goes into effect Tuesday
