I found this article in the News Journal today, by Jon Offredo. Delaware Legislature, State Representative Debra Heffernan, D-Brandywine Hundred is introducing a bill supported by the Delaware Association Restaurateurs and the Department of Health & Social Services to ban e-cigarette use in restaurants, public spaces (beaches & parks) and indoor spaces. E-Cigarettes have boomed popularity and use, especially among teenagers. The long-term risked of smoking e-cigarettes are unknown. The toxic chemicals and carcinogens (cancer causing agents) in the liquid vapor are not regulated by the FDA. This article was featured in the Tova Cares, Spring 2014 Newsletter, Healthy Tidbits. The House recently passed legislation to ban the sale of e-cigarettes to minors and now the bill moves to the Senate.
