CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Charleston city council approved a smoking ban in public parks Tuesday night. The ban would stop people from smoking in 120 different public parks owned by the city. 

Right now the ban includes e-cigarettes. Smoking is already outlawed in certain places because Charleston went smoke-free in restaurants and bars in 2012.

Certain areas of downtown like MUSC's medical district and the College of Charleston have also adopted smoke-free campuses.
