Electronic-cigarette users stood outside of the county annex afterward, "vaping" and frustrated over the health board's decision.
"I quit smoking Aug. 1, 2013, and I'm a whole lot better," said Greenfield resident Lisa Beatty, who has chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. "How can you make a decision when you don't know? To me, you ought to know before you make a decision."
Alexandria residents Darlene and Ward Bond attended the meeting because they both work in Greenfield. Ward said the board was too quick in its decision and said the vapor is no different than "boiling water on a stove top."
"They should have taken the time to consider the information," he added.
There are nearly 450 signatures on the Vapor Lock store petition against the ban. Rogers said she plans to go before the county commissioners soon but said she was disappointed with their February decision to go along with the health department recommendation without learning more about the devices.
"This is huge," she said. "It affects a lot of people, and they should have taken more time."
