Last week, Gov. Cuomo signed into law a bill that adds electronic cigarettes to the state’s Clean Indoor Air Act, prohibiting vaping anywhere that smoking cigarettes are already prohibited. The ban goes into effect at on November 22nd.

Gov. Cuomo said:

“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. This measure closes another dangerous loophole in the law, creating a stronger, healthier New York for all.”
