New York State Bans Vaping Where Cigarettes Already Prohibited

Although many NY counties had already banned e-cigarettes, the new law reduces public exposure to e-cigarette chemical fumes statewide.

Mr. Singh acknowledged that the product he sells may be a health risk, but believes it is a lesser evil; most customers use it as way to quit traditional cigarettes, he said.

"These items are marketed as a healthier alternative to cigarettes, however the reality is they likewise convey long haul dangers to the health of users and those around them", Cuomo said in a release.

It's now illegal to use electronic cigarettes anywhere cigarette smoking is banned. "This measure closes another risky loophole in the law, creating a stronger, healthier NY for all".

But proponents of devices like e-cigs and vaporizers - larger, cellphone-size gadgets - say they are a safer alternative to cigarettes and may help with smoking cessation.

NY joins a growing list of states that have banned vaping in indoor public spaces such as bars and restaurants, in much the same way they restrict smoking. The state in July banned e-cigs from all school grounds.

This bill (S.2543A/ A.516A) would reduce the exposure to potentially risky chemicals for e-cigarette users and those around them.

The State Assembly added the ban on vaping, which will go into effect in 30 days, to New York's Clean Indoor Air Act this summer, and the Senate approved the measure.

The health consequences of c-cigarette use are unclear.

"This measure closes another risky loophole in the law, creating a stronger, healthier NY for all", Cuomo said. This measure makes the law consistent across the state. While another study found an association between e-cigarette use and bladder cancer. "The FDA classifies e-vapor products as tobacco products because they contain nicotine derived from tobacco".
