Governor Signs Measure Banning Sale of E-Cigarettes to Minors
Gov. Andrew Cuomo has signed new laws to ban sales of electronic cigarettes in New York to anyone under 18 and to prohibit smoking within 100 feet of the entrances to public or private schools.

The smoking restriction takes effect immediately. Residences or residential property within the 100-foot perimeter would be excluded.
 
Electronic cigarettes are battery-powered devices used to inhale vaporized liquid nicotine instead of tobacco smoke. The ban on sales to minors takes effect Jan. 1.
 
Opponents of the electronic-cigarettes, which are currently unregulated, say the devices are made in flavors such as bubble gum and chocolate and are meant to appeal to young people to hook yet another generation on a deadly habit.
