Gov. Andrew Cuomo Bans e-cigarettes in New York City

It’s presently illegal to use electronic cigarettes anywhere cigarette smoking is banned.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the legislation on Monday. It adds e-cigarettes to the Clean Indoor Air Act, which precludes smoking in broad daylight places.

“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.

Before the new law, just substances containing tobacco, including stogies, cigarettes or pipes, were banned from use in broad daylight places.

While numerous counties have already banned the use of e-cigarettes in broad daylight places – including restaurants, bars and other work places – the new law makes it consistent over the state.

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

The new law has the support of the American Cancer Society and the American Lung Association.
