New York State Bans Vaping Where Cigarettes Already Prohibited

Citing the lack of broad regulations on what chemicals e-cigarettes can contain and how much nicotine they deliver, the governor's office says, "These factors could lead to long-term adverse health effects for e-cigarette users and bystanders".

The bill is the latest passed by the State Legislature to combat the rise in e-cigarette and vaping by youths and in public places including bars, said Senate Health Committee Chairman Kemp Hannon (R-Garden City).

Effective in 30 days, vaping will be banned in, among other areas, the workplace, on public transportation, indoors at all public and private colleges, and in outdoor areas where smoking is otherwise banned.

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

"E-cigarettes are proving to be just another tool reeling them into a risky and often lifetime of addiction to nicotine", Seyler said.

The bill adding e-cigarettes to the state Clean Indoor Air Act was sponsored by Assemblywoman Linda Rosenthal and state Sen.

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.

However, critics note that little is known about the health effects of using e-cigarettes. While another study found an association between e-cigarette use and bladder cancer.

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

New York City banned e-cigs back in 2013, including the measure in the city's Smoke Free Air Act. According to the American Lung Association, almost three-quarters of New York's municipalities already have bans in effect.

Electronic and vapor-delivery systems often times contain nicotine.
