New York May Add E-Cigarettes To Public Smoking Ban
Do you vape or use e-cigarettes? Here in New York, lawmakers are proposing to ban them in public places just like cigarettes.
According to the Time-Herald Record, lawmakers are currently debating whether to add electronic cigarettes to the state’s ban on smoking in public areas like workplaces, bars and restaurants. The state Assembly reportedly already has endorsed the idea.
Supporters say it makes sense to add e-cigarettes to the indoor smoking ban to protect non-smokers from second-hand exposure to the chemicals in the devices. They also say it would send a message discouraging teens from taking up the habit.
