E-Cigarettes Receive Positive Ruling In New York
Return to Vaping Blog

Electronic cigarette versus dirty smelly normal cigarette buttsA unique case has taken place in New York regarding e-cigarettes. On a public New York subway platform, there was an individual who was vaping from his e-cigarette. Apparently, he got cited for doing so and later decided to fight the citation. His argument was simple, that smoking is not the same thing as vaping.


The judge, after looking at the actual New York law itself, seemed to agree with the individual who was using the e-cigarette. The law states that, “the burning of a lighted cigar, cigarette, pipe, or any other matter or substance which contains tobacco.” Anyone who knows anything about vaporizers knows that they market on this one point: e-cigarettes contain no tobacco!” This judge obviously did his homework and seemed to agree with the man using the e-cigarette. He noted that, “an electronic cigarette neither burns nor contains tobacco.” It is a relief that there was a judge who actually did his homework about vaporizers before grouping them in with tobacco products. Hopefully in the future there will be more people in power who realize the good that e-cigarettes can potentially do.
