Wisconsin state senator Glenn Grothman thinks that electronic cigarettes should be separate from the state’s smoking ban. He says that “the devices can help people drop traditional tobacco products, and he wants to make it clear that the statewide smoking ban does not apply to them.”
The bill, known as Senate Bill No. 389, seeks to clarify that “smoking” for purposes of the general prohibition against smoking in public indoor locations does not include the holding, or inhaling or exhaling a vapor or a vaporized solution from an electronic device that does not contain tobacco.”
For all the grief that we give politicians over their decisions, in equal measure we MUST give credit where credit is due.
I urge our readership to reach out to Senator Grothman via his contact page located here. Let him know you appreciate a politician who actually does their homework!
