Somehow, until today, legislation to officially ban vaping on flights did not exist. Although, for the most part U.S. airlines have voluntarily prohibited the use of e-cigs on flights.

The U.S. Department of Transportation banned cigarettes on commercial planes more than 25 years ago, of course, but the rules surrounding e-cigs were still ambiguous. Although the DOT said e-cigs were included in the decades old ban, the rule didn’t specifically include them. However, after submitting final regulations yesterday, U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx says e-cigarettes will officially fall under the same ban as other tobacco products.

Sorry cool guys such as Leonardo DiCaprio and U.S. Representative from California Duncan Hunter, it looks like your image will never be as tough as it once was.
