  • E-cigarettes are devices that typically deliver nicotine flavorings and other additives to users via an inhaled aerosol

"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", said Governor Cuomo. "This measure closes another risky loophole in the law, creating a stronger, healthier NY for all".

Mr. Singh acknowledged that the product he sells may be a health risk, but believes it is a lesser evil; most customers use it as way to quit traditional cigarettes, he said.

E-cig manufacturers have fired back, challenging the bills and laws in court since vaping technically does not produce smoke, but rather vapor.

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