Can I Smoke My E-cig In Public?
Considering that e cigs produce a harmless vapor that leaves no lingering odor or residue (as confirmed by the recent IVAQS study), smoking your e-cigarette in public should be completely fine, although this is not always the case. Many cities as well as college campuses and businesses have included e-cigarettes in their already existing smoking ban, clearly ignoring the massive difference between a normal cigarette (analogue) and electronic cigarettes. And this is becoming the case all too often.
Part of our mission here at Ecig Advanced is to dispel this widely held misconception through education rather than hyperbolic accusation or condemnation. We believe that if you’re in a physical location where e-cigarettes smoking is banned, it may be worthwhile to consider any consequences before you use your e-cigarette, especially if you’re being directly told not to.
While it’s completely unfair to the e-cig smoker or “vaper”, our best hope to be able to use our e-cigarettes freely is through education of the public and attitudes everywhere. So assert yourself when necessary but always be polite and respectful of the community or establishment you’re in.
