As of this week, vaping wherever standard smoking is prohibited will also be banned in NY state.

NY has banned electronic cigarette use in restaurants, bars and any other places where smoking tobacco products is prohibited.

WIVB.com provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.

Defenders of e-cigarettes have argued that switching from regular cigarettes to electronic has helped people quit smoking altogether, though the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force concluded that evidence is insufficient to recommend e-cigarettes for smoking cessation in adults.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the legislation on Monday. "This measure closes another unsafe loophole in the law, creating a stronger, healthier NY for all".

Cuomo signed legislation in July that banned e-cigarettes use on all open and private school grounds. But the New York State Health Department says that vaping isn't as safe as some think because what is produced can have formaldehyde, cadmium and other chemicals, in addition to nicotine that is found in traditional cigarettes, USA Today reported.

"E-cigarettes are proving to be just another tool reeling them into a unsafe and often lifetime of addiction to nicotine", Seyler said. Kemp Hannon said, "As the proud sponsor of this legislation, I am pleased NY will be taking this step to protect New Yorkers from the potential harms of e-cigarettes".

"Our customers they know that they can't be walking through a store vaping, or sitting at a bar vaping", said Aman Singh, owner of Long Island Vape in Huntington Station, N.Y. He said he has spoken to physicians who encourage smokers to switch to the products to reduce their risk of illness.

Vaping is starting to go down the same path as smoking.
