Bill Would Put E-Cigarettes Under Smoking Ban

(Springfield, IL) — One state lawmaker says electronic cigarettes should be banned everywhere that regular cigarettes are. Representative Kathleen Willis of Addison has introduced a bill that would ban the use of e-cigarettes inside public places across the state. While there’s no scientific consensus on whether the vapor from e-cigarettes poses a health threat, Willis says she suspects it will prove just as dangerous as second-hand tobacco smoke.
