There is a smoking ban here in Ohio that prohibits people from lighting up in public buildings, including bars and restaurants. When those electronic cigarettes came out, people started using them instead of real cigarettes.. I have a point here I promise..
Even though these electronic devices only emit water vapor, they are banned as well because they might encourage the other smokers to light up a real tobacco product.
Point... perhaps the ban on propane fire pits is based on the same "logic" that bans electronic cigarettes here. Other campers may be encouraged to light real fires using real wood.
Just a thought...
