Vaping

A New Hampshire city has voted to ban the use of electronic cigarettes where regular cigarettes are already prohibited.

Foster's Daily Democrat reports the Dover City Council voted unanimously on Wednesday to ban e-cigarettes in all locations where tobacco products are banned.

Tobacco products are currently banned from several places around the city including a park and on school grounds and athletic fields.

Advocates of the measure say it will eliminate the "negative influence" that e-cigarettes have on children.

Electronic cigarettes could soon be banned in all places where regular cigarettes are already prohibited in a New Hampshire city.

Foster's Daily Democrat reports the Dover City Council has moved an ordinance along to a public hearing that would ban e-cigarettes in all locations that current tobacco products are already prohibited from.

Despite claims by the industry that e-cigarettes are healthier than traditional smoking, more research is raising questions about this alternative, including its rising use by teenagers. But vaping has caught on, with more shops opening and many ex-smokers who say vaping helped them quit tobacco.
