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.

The dangers of e-cigarettes have become a hot debate topic in recent years, even as the devices have seen massive popularity.

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.

New York State Sen. Supporters of e-cigarettes said that there isn't sufficient proof the devices, which are legal, are a health threat, and that they could be used by some smokers to end the use of traditional tobacco products.

About 70% of the state's cities already ban e-cigarettes, so the statewide policy captures the rest, according to the American Lung Association. Vaping is the act of inhaling vapor produced by a vaporizer or e-cigarette. "It can contain harmful and potentially harmful chemicals, including nicotine; ultrafine particles that can be inhaled deep into the lungs; flavoring such diacetyl, a chemical linked to a serious lung disease; volatile organic compounds such as benzene, which is found in auto exhaust; and heavy metals, such as nickel, tin and lead".
