NJ Restricts Use Of Electronic Smoking Devices

ecig2New Jersey has enacted restrictions on the sale and use of electronic cigarettes. Gov. Jon Corzine on Monday signed into law legislation that prohibits the use of electronic smoking devices in workplaces and other indoor public places and prohibits their sale to minors. Electronic cigarettes look like the real thing but don’t contain tobacco. Instead, they employ a metal tube with a battery that heats up a liquid nicotine solution. Users inhale and exhale the resulting water vapor. The bill’s sponsor, Assemblywoman¬†Nancy Munoz, a Republican from Summit, says the restrictions are a matter of erring on the side of caution because the health risks associated with e-cigarettes have not been fully determined.

  1. The tobacco industry as well as the drug industry is paying them off.

    I have a friend that produces e-cigarettes. The only by product is vapor. Also he was at a hearing to see if they wanted to ban it in LI. Glaxo Smith Kline (the manufacture of nicotine patches) was there talking about how bad it was.
