Public indoor vaping snuffed out in NY

In July, Cuomo signed into law a ban on e-cigarettes anywhere on school grounds as surveys showed a spike in use of e-cigarettes by youths too young to buy cigarettes. "This measure closes another unsafe loophole in the law, creating a stronger, healthier NY for all".

Another pending bill seeks to require e-cigarette sellers to register with the state as tobacco retailers do - a tactic to mitigate sales to youths.

The decision was made due to the fact that ingredients in e-cigarettes are considered toxic and there is no regulation of what chemicals e-cigarettes contain or how much nicotine the user is inhaling.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo has approved legislation banning the use of electronic cigarettes in bars, restaurants and other indoor public places.

Assemblywoman Linda B. Rosenthal said, "Closing the e-cigarette loophole by including it in the Clean Indoor Air Act is a long-overdue step that will help protect every New Yorker's right to enjoy indoor public spaces free from the intrusion of e-cigarette vapor". These factors could lead to long-term adverse health effects for e-cigarette users and bystanders.

A 2016 study by the New York State Department of Health found that 20 percent of children had tried e-cigs, double the number from two years prior. Several others have partial bans on vaping in areas like public education facilities and state and local government buildings. As of this week, vaping wherever standard smoking is prohibited will also be banned in NY state. According to the American Lung Association, almost three-quarters of New York's municipalities already have bans in effect. "The FDA classifies e-vapor products as tobacco products because they contain nicotine derived from tobacco".
