Last Tuesday, Gov. Cuomo announced that he has signed a bill that bans the use of electronic cigarettes on all public and private school grounds in the state, effective immediately.

Gov. Cuomo said:

“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.”
