REALLY??? IS IT THE 2ND HAND SMOKE? OH WAIT, THERE ISN'T ANY! I'LL VOTE WITH MY $'S! RESTAURANTS, MALLS, ANY AND ALL SHOPPING WILL BE DONE ELSEWHERE. WHAT'S NEXT, A BAN ON SODA WITH SUGAR? I'M SICK AND TIRED OF THESE IDIOTIC LAW MAKERS INFRINGING ON MY RIGHTS!

How ridiculous and irresponsible of the town council to pass an ordinance that bans vaping except where smoking is allowed. The town council was provided current scientific data regarding the safety of electronic cigarettes and chose to ignore it. Their actions show an utter disregard for the health of their community by voting in favor of this ordinance. That's right, force the newly former smokers to go stand with the smokers to use a harm reduction device that has been found to cause no harm to user or bystanders. I am truly embarrassed to live in a town governed by people who willfully ignore science in order to bow down to media hype. Their reckless decision stamps out the attractiveness of the benefit of moving to a harm reduction device rather than continuing to smoke which will result in more deaths from smoking.

Silly people in charge. We, the smokers, that pay the huge taxes; know that the Industries do NOT want us to STOP. It's ridiculous to make these laws. Quit wasting taxpayer dollars on personal freedoms. Worry about water quality, worry about the roadways. I don't intend to quit smoking. Ever. I have a very expensive e-cig for use in areas that don't allow smoking. If the entire state quit using tobacco products, where would they get the funds they receive now? They don't want us to quit. Our country is sliding backwards. I will do as I please.

"Behind the counter" That's what is going to stop a 20 year smoker from quitting? The nicotine patch is how I quit. I had an e-cig, but I don't know what I was thinking with that. The patch delivered 24 hour nicotine. As for teens? I thought nicotine was regulated anyway. Can teens dip?
