VAPING TO BE BANNED IN PUBLIC PLACES BANNED IN NEW YORK
Posted: 1:57 pm Tuesday, October 24th, 2017
You like to vape? You like to vape when out with friends? What about in the office? Maybe when you’re out to dinner? Well, get those last public puffs out of your system, because in 30 days it will be illegal to do so!!
That’s right, in one month’s time, it will be illegal to vape while in a public place. In other words, your vape will be treated no differently than a cigarette.
Many areas of NY state already have a ban in place, including NYC, but this will cover the entire state of NY.
When asked to comment on the measure, Governor Andrew Cuomo had this to say:
“These products are marketed as a healthier alternative to cigarettes but the reality is they also carry long-term risks to the health of users and those around them.
“This measure closes another dangerous loophole in the law, creating a stronger, healthier New York for all.”
