GUTHRIE, Okla. – The list of cities and towns across Oklahoma that have banned tobacco and e-cigarettes is growing.

Recently, the Guthrie City Council approved an ordinance that bans tobacco and e-cigarettes on all city-owned and operated properties.

Those areas include city buildings, parks, lakes and little league sports fields.

If you’re caught smoking, you could face up to a $200 fine.

Officials say the move helps the environment and protects others from second-hand smoke.

More than 30 cities in Oklahoma have already passed a similar ordinance.
