Strong clean indoor air laws are the most effective way to prevent second hand smoke exposure. In addition to conventional tobacco products, exposure to aerosol from electronic cigarettes presents a potential threat to public health while normalizing smoking behavior.
Dr. Jan Carney will be joining the American Heart Association and the Coalition for a Tobacco Free Vermont in educating lawmakers at a legislative luncheon on e-cigarettes on February 19th about the importance of prohibiting the vaping of e-cigarettes in the same locations where Vermont currently prohibits smoking.
Dr. Carney warned lawmakers at Smoke Free Vermont's Smoke Free 10 event this fall that e-cigarette use by high school students has tripled in a single year and
U.S. sales are projected to rise almost 25 percent each year.
