Public Use Restrictions on Vapor Products
Reasonable vapor usage restrictions can protect youth and may encourage adult smokers to consider switching to vapor products.
Vapor products should not be banned in most public places because they do not burn tobacco or create smoke. Along with other smoke-free tobacco products, vapor products have the potential to reduce risks for adult smokers who choose to switch. Public bans on these products may deter smokers from considering switching to a vapor product.
Since vapor products do not emit smoke, and there is no second-hand smoke, adult tobacco consumers should be allowed to use vapor products in most places where cigarette smoking is banned, particularly adult only facilities like bars. There are certain locations where no tobacco products should be allowed, such as schools and daycare facilities.
Adult tobacco consumers should always comply with rules and regulations designed to respect the rights of others.
