Gee, maybe it's because nicotine (and its vaporized form of intake) is toxic? Itt increases human heart rate, blood pressure and creates a slew of other avoidable complications to the blood, muscle and gastrointestinal tissues. It also happens to not be the greatest chemical to have coursing through the veins of young women for a variety of health reasons. Nice try China. Though you had us all back in the 18th century with opium, didn't you?

E-cigs are smoking. They are not non-nicotine products. In addition, users have found methods to fill them with other products to obtain 'varying' results. None of which should be permitted on school campuses.

What are the other school districts that have bans in place?

They didn't say. However, Capistrano Unified is not one of them.

According to the OCRegister, Capo did amend district policy last year to ban e-cigs. I have not found a direct citation from CVUSD to confirm that position. SVUSD, Irvine and Laguna Beach are three of the districts in South-OC that have banned e-cigs.
