The law also bans the use of e-cigarettes in any vehicle used to transport children or school personnel.

Proponents of e-cigarettes say it's safer than smoking traditional cigarettes or using other tobacco products.

"These items are marketed as a healthier alternative to cigarettes, however the reality is they likewise convey long haul dangers to the health of users and those around them", Cuomo said in a release.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a bill Monday adding e-cigarettes to the Clean Indoor Air Act, which bans their use everywhere that smoking tobacco products are prohibited. "This measure closes another risky loophole in the law".

As the Shots blog has reported, "Nicotine, heavy metals and tiny particles that can harm the lungs have been found in secondhand e-cigarette aerosol, according to the Surgeon General".

Kansas City responded with Smith's 64-yard touchdown pass to Hill, putting the Chiefs ahead 17-14 with 8:51 left in the half. Carr finished the game 29 for 52 for 417 yards and three touchdowns, while throwing no interceptions and taking no sacks.

The bill is the latest passed by the State Legislature to combat the rise in e-cigarette and vaping by youths and in public places including bars, said Senate Health Committee Chairman Kemp Hannon (R-Garden City).

NY has added electronic cigarettes to its indoor smoking ban, making it illegal to use the devices in bars, restaurants and most workplaces.

The health consequences of c-cigarette use are unclear.

In July, Cuomo signed legislation that immediately banned the use of e-cigarettes on all public and private school grounds in ny state. And many major cities, including Boston, New Orleans and Chicago have complete bans on the books as well. E-cigarettes often contain toxic chemicals in addition to nicotine, something bystanders should not be forced to breathe.

The law is the latest step in a push by many state and local governments to put e-cigarettes on the same level as tobacco products.
