Figures.

If it is a bar, let them vape.  At a regular restaurant?  No.

When you are at war you cannot let your enemy have any sort of win

That is why there is a movement against ecigs. Anti-tobacco people can't let smokers get a leg up no matter what the circumstance is.

It hasn't formally been charged with vape yet.

I don't hang out with smokers or "vapers", but I walked by a person sneaking a vape in a mall last week. Then I walked by a woman who had just left the Clinique counter. Both offended my nose but nothing I didn't quickly get over.

Really? Cuz my friends that vape have got some of the nicest smelling flavors. I guess some people vape with essence of skunk's asshole.

In cases of legitimate vape, New York has ways of shutting the whole thing down.

Why the hell do you use e-cigs anyway? They don't make you any less of a loser than real smokers; they just make you a battery-powered loser.

Makes perfect sense.

Oh, also legalize weed because reasons.  Smoking other stuff is totally awesome.

The problem is that there are people who recognize that there are places you shouldn't smoke but think you can vape (and I feel like a tool for using that like it's a real word) wherever you want. They're doing it in restaurants, churches, hospitals, etc. Sometimes sneaking it like no one is going to notice, sometimes just openly doing it because they're the coolest.

Vaping is less bad than smoking when it comes to those around them. Just like molesting a woman with your hands is less bad than full penetration rape.

Yeah, but if you're vaping nicotine, you still have the same increased risk of heart attack and stroke. Wouldn't want to lose that!

^This.  They're just being silly.  I feel like car exhaust on the street probably does more damage than second hand e-cig vapor at the bar.

Why is this a problem? I was under the impression that smoking was banded in resturants and other public spaces because of health issues for the workers there. Is nicotine vapor as harmful?
 
2014-04-29 06:01:53 PM  
This is a stupid ruling for public health. Vaping does NOTHING to harm anyone (I'm an asthmatic with an acute sensitivity to most artificial scents and many natural ones and yet having my brothers vape in my enclosed vehicle does nothing, were I not looking at them I wouldn't know they were vaping) and by vaping the user either reduces or eliminates their dependence on cigarettes.

Stupid =/= interesting. And smoking is pants-on-head stupid. I give people a break if they started smoking before age 18, because teenagers are by definition retarded, but people who start in college are a special kind of stupid.

I worked with a guy that was trying to quit.  But the job became stressful so it was his way of coping.  12 hours a day, sucking on that thing like crazy.  I'm surprised he didn't suck the chrome off of it

Nah, it just smells like crap and pisses off people around them. I was all for e-cigs until a friend got in our car and "lit" one up. We told him to stop in 20 seconds. I guess that's better than an actual cig, since we would have thrown him out of the car at speed.

Make your habit not piss off everyone around you and fark up our breathing, and you can do whatever the hell you want.

I don't know what bars you hang out at but it's usually not common for drinkers to vomit back out their drinks into other peoples' mouths and nostrils.

This is very true. I always go outside unless I am given permission. I've actually had people ask me why I wasnt just doing so inside, my answer is always the same I don't want to make anyone uncomfortable. As far as the term vaping its an attempt to avoid the ire of anti-smoking zealots (not working too well). I do however sneak a tute in the bathroom at sporting events I figure that's probably low on the list of things to worry about in such places.

If 'vape smoke' is exhaled water vapor, could it transmit disease from the 'vaper' to the secondhand vapor recipients?

My neighbor's 10 year old smokes an e-cig.  It smells like molten jolly rancher.

We now have a new technology that allows nicotine addicts the ability to satisfy their cravings without inconveniencing or endangering those around them. So let's do everything we can to discourage smokers from switching to it.

Authoritarian assholes.

Everyone exhales water vapor. This is called breathing.

On the same risk level of consuming caffeine.

I believe they've determined that nicotine vaping creates about 1/10th the amount of second-hand nicotine ingestion from people passively breathing it in a bar situation as smoking does. So still too much for workplace health, I would imagine. Nicotine increases the risk of heart attack and stroke, no matter how you ingest it.

Naa.. The e-cig was too sleek.. Couldn't help but vape it. If these e-cigs wouldn't look so damn sleek then maybe people wouldn't want to vape them.

For better or worse it's going to be regulated exactly like tobacco. The e-cig industry did a great job bringing this upon themselves, not being open about ingredients, not doing multiple health studies, etc. It's their burden to prove safety.

The users didn't help much either, as I'm about to be called a troll for telling the truth.

No more so than the water vapor you aspirate normally, I would think. And yeah, you can catch diseases from other people breathing on you.
