When this new measure will be implemented as New York's new law, it will cover vaping in the State's Clean Indoor Air Act. Andrew Cuomo signed a new law Monday adding electronic cigarettes to the Clean Indoor Air Act - making them illegal anywhere tobacco cigarettes are already barred. Mike Davoli of the American Cancer Society said that the law ensures that you can go to a restaurant with your kids and be sure that neither you nor the kids are exposed to an electronic cigarette.
Before the new law, just substances containing tobacco, including stogies, cigarettes or pipes, were banned from use in broad daylight places.

NY now joins California, Connecticut, New Jersey, and Utah on the ban.
"We're out here trying to help people", he said, adding he worries about the impact ever-tighter strictures on e-cigarettes would have on his customers.
