NY adds vaping to smoking ban statewide

World Health Organisation Calls For Regulation Of Ecigarettes

"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.

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. NY created the act in 2003, making it one of the country's first states to ban smoking tobacco products in public indoor areas.

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.

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 has banned electronic cigarette use in restaurants, bars and any other places where smoking tobacco products is prohibited.

Under current law, only smoking substances containing tobacco, including cigars, cigarettes or pipes, are restricted in public places.

Hannon said a pending bill would require the sellers of e-cigarettes to register with the state the same way sellers of traditional products must.

However, critics note that little is known about the health effects of using e-cigarettes. Places like bars, restaurants, and other "designated non-smoking" areas. And many major cities, including Boston, New Orleans and Chicago have complete bans on the books as well.

Electronic and vapor-delivery systems often times contain nicotine.

In New York, around 70 percent of the state's municipalities already have bans on the books, according to the American Lung Association.
