New Yorkers who use e-cigarettes will have to comply with the same limits on smoking cigarettes in public, now that Gov. Andrew Cuomo has signed a bill into law.
But anti-smoking advocates say more needs to be done to combat the rising use of the nicotine product.
Cuomo said the new law closes a "dangerous loophole" in the state’s Clean Indoor Air Act, which limits cigarette smoking in public places. Those same restrictions will now apply to smokeless e-cigarettes.
