What next ? ban nicotine patches ? strip search to enforce it ?

New York City Council votes to ban e-cigarettes

Miguel Martin, president of Logic, the U.S.'s third-largest e-cigarette maker, says he's disappointed in the New York City Council's position.
New Yorkers who've latched on to electronic cigarettes to get their nicotine fix at the local bar had their hopes snuffed out Thursday as the New York City Council overwhelmingly voted to add the smokeless smokes to the city's ban on smoking in public places.
Even though the electronic cigarettes don't produce secondhand smoke, the council voted 43-8 to ban the use of e-cigarettes in restaurants, bars, city parks and any other places where smoking is already outlawed.
