e-cigarettes are banned in nyc in the same places that cigarettes are banned
the reasoning they give is incredibly fucking stupid. they say the health risk is an unknown quantity even though it's only propylene glycol and nicotine and optionally flavors. you might as well ban smoke machines too and they emit a shit ton more propylene glycol than an e-cig or vape. study after study shows there's nothing harmful in them certainly not at any appreciable level and that it helps people quit cigarettes.
they also say e-cigs shouldn't be allowed indoor because it sometimes smells. you might as well ban perfume and body odor in bars and restaurants then.
then a bunch of idiots go on record saying they didn't do enough because all the various candy flavors are marketing towards children.
. so cherry or coconut flavored vodkas are also marketed towards children right? and if it's not even harmful then what's the big fucking deal?
so fucking stupid
fwiw i don't smoke. i have been interested in trying, but never took it up/
