This Thing is Now Banned on All School Grounds in New York
You have heard the commercials telling you that it is "Back to School Time."
Yes, technically it is still the middle of summer and kids have about 5-6 weeks before they will be heading back to school, but here is one thing that will not be on any school grounds when school resumes around Labor Day 2017. What is it? It's e-cigarettes, also known as vaping and e-cigs.
This week Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a law that says, e-cigarettes are banned from use on public and private school grounds across New York effective immediately.
According to a press release, here is what the governor had to say on the topic:
"Nicotine use in any form has shown to be damaging to teens and this measure will close a dangerous loophole that allows e-cigarettes to be used in New York schools. This measure will further this administration's efforts to combat teen smoking in all its forms and help create a stronger, healthier New York for all."
Do you think this is a good thing? Or do you feel that smokers are continuing to lose their rights?
