NY State Bans E-Cigarette Use Where Tobacco Smoking Is Prohibited

It's now illegal to use electronic cigarettes anywhere cigarette smoking is banned.

Some places, including New York City, have already banned the use of e-cigarettes in public places, like work, restaurants, and bars.

In July, Cuomo signed legislation that immediately banned the use of e-cigarettes on all public and private school grounds in ny state.

Jeff Seyler, executive vice president of the American Lung Association's Northeast region, said the new state law will protect the public's health and help shield children from the "dangerous and often lifetime addiction to nicotine". NY state is the 11th to ban public vaping at the state level.

Cuomo signed legislation in July that banned e-cigarettes use on all public and private school grounds.

This bill (S.2543A/ A.516A) would reduce the exposure to potentially unsafe chemicals for e-cigarette users and those around them. "It can contain harmful and potentially harmful chemicals, including nicotine; ultrafine particles that can be inhaled deep into the lungs; flavoring such diacetyl, a chemical linked to a serious lung disease; volatile organic compounds such as benzene, which is found in auto exhaust; and heavy metals, such as nickel, tin and lead". "These factors could lead to long-term adverse health effects for e-cigarette users and bystanders". The release notes that the inhalation of these unknown chemicals could result in serious long-term health complications. According to reports from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the industry is now worth roughly $2.5-billion.

As you might expect with such numbers, e-cigarette users haven't gone down without a fight.

Electronic nicotine and vapor delivery systems such as e-cigarettes, vaping pens, e-hookah and similar devices, typically contain nicotine.

The New York State Court of Appeals rejected the most recent challenge to New York City's ban earlier this year, finding the inclusion of e-cigs in the law was valid.
