The Beltrami County Board of Commissioners finalized an ordinance Tuesday night that regulates the sale and use of so-called electronic cigarettes. The language was changed since the public hearing of the of issue two weeks ago, dropping the most controversial provisions of the new law. The ordinance, as adopted, will allow customers to sample non-nicotine products in dedicated shops--something the original language would not have allowed.

A similar proposal to compromise on the sampling issue was voted down by the Board last month 3-2, but in a surprising turnaround, all five members voted unanimously to allow it Tuesday night.

Dave Bewely, co-owner of Northern Vapes, an e-cigarette store in Bemidji, called the move "common sense."
