The City of Ely has imposed a six-month moratorium on synthetic drugs and electronic cigarettes.
    
E-cigarettes are prohibited anywhere regular tobacco cigarettes are not allowed, including restaurants, bars and parks. It also bans businesses that sell e-cigarettes from allowing customers to sample the products indoors.
    
The moratorium also bans any business or person from selling synthetic drugs.
    
Mayor Ross Peterson tells WDIO-TV the moratorium gives the city some time to draw up a permanent ordinance.
