Toughest E-Cig Restrictions Won't Advance An attempt to treat electronic cigarettes like regular smokes has stalled in the Minnesota Legislature.
Senate Votes To Equate E-Cigarettes To Smoking Minnesota senators have voted for a stringent set of electronic cigarette standards that would make their use unacceptable in any place regular tobacco is disallowed. The approach endorsed Thursday goes further than a House companion bill, so the two measures must be reconciled for any e-cigarette regulations to become law. A move to pare back the indoor air restrictions in the Senate bill failed on a 35-28 vote.
Study Looking To See If E-Cigs Curb Smoking Habits A new study is looking into whether or not e-cigarettes are an effective way to stop, or cut back on smoking as many smokers turn to them as an alternative. Electronic cigarettes turn a liquid solution into a vapor, and some contain nicotine.
Minn. Lawmaker Proposing Statewide Restrictions On E-CigarettesA Minnesota legislator is now proposing a bill that would put e-cigarettes across under the same state-wide restrictions as cigarettes. The bill from DFL State Rep. Phyllis Kahn would limit the use of e-cigarettes under the Minnesota Clean Indoor Act.
