LOS ANGELES — This city, where healthy living is a devotion for many, could become the latest to crack down on the sale of electronic cigarettes used for vaping.

And Washington state became the latest Wednesday to institute an emergency ban on flavored vaping products.

Los Angeles would go further. A city council member has introduced a measure that would have the city join San Francisco, the first major municipality to ban the sale of all electronic cigarettes. In L.A.'s case, vaping devices would stay off the market until the U.S. Food and Drug Administration deems them safe.

In Washington state, the State Board of Health adopted Gov. Jay Inslee's call for an emergency ban of flavored vaping products. Several other states have also adopted or are considering temporary bans.

The L.A. legislation follows another motion introduced last month, aimed at a one-year ban on only marijuana-related products that can be vaped. The new proposal would prohibit the sale of all e-cigarettes.

Both motions were referred to a committee that will recommend how far the city should go if it deems a crackdown necessary.

Also on Wednesday, first lady Melania Trump endorsed the idea of stores choosing not to sell e-cigarettes, saying it is an important step to protect young people from the dangers of vaping. She spoke at what was billed as a White House "listening session," where teenagers told her about their experiences using e-cigarettes.
