that want to regulate electronic cigarettes

the same way they regulate tobacco!

How can something that controls tobacco use,

be controlled as tobacco itself?

Electronic Cigarettes ≠ Tobacco

New York E-Cigarette Users:

Take part in our letter-writing campaign !

New York State is well on its way to voting on a bill to ban electronic cigarette use in all New York State locations where tobacco use is also banned. New York City just passed a similar law, we cannot let it happen to the entire state – it is just not acceptable. We must remind our state elected officials that electron cigarettes are completely distinct from tobacco cigarettes; therefore, they should be regulated differently and reasonably. They are inherently different products and any proposed ban, or even additional taxation, would be incredibly premature.  TAKE ACTION NOW!

Electronic CigaretteNew Yorkers for Smarter Smoking Alternatives is a coalition comprised of local retailers, wholesalers and distributors, and members of the public who have come together to actively oppose the recent attempts by the City and State government to restrict access to electronic cigarettes and smarter smoking alternatives.

Some of the bills that are sitting in the New York State legislature include a bill that would essentially ban the use of electronic cigarettes in indoor locations such as bars and restaurants. The members of this coalition recognize that electronic cigarettes have helped countless people better control – and even eliminate – their smoking habit, play a significant and crucial role in supporting the New York State economy, and provide a smoking alternative that has touched the lives of thousands while other smoking cessation products have fallen short.

However, just as New Yorkers find a safer alternative, the New York State legislature decided to wound public freedom even further,” says NYSSA Spokesman David Schwartz. “This new coalition has formed to tell New York State that the ‘Nanny State’ has overstepped yet another right that we will strive to protect.”

NYC E-Cig Users - Last Chance to Speak Up!

The Department of Health and Mental Hygiene is proposing to amend Chapter 10 of Title 24 of the Rules of the City of New York to: (1) reflect amendments to the Smoke-Free Air Act made by Local Law 152 of 2013 prohibiting the use of electronic cigarettes in certain places; (2) facilitate enforcement of the Smoke-Free Air Act; and (3) repeal provisions that are out of date.
