Starting today, the use of e-cigarettes is prohibited in most workplaces and all public places where smoking is already banned. Laura Smith with Minnesotans for a Smoke-Free Generation says the law will be beneficial for everyone–especially children and teens. She says there’s a “youth nicotine epidemic” and says “it’s really concerning because we know that nicotine in any form harms the developing adolescent brain and can prime our young people for addiction, not only to e-cigarettes but to other substances as well.” Smith hopes the new law will reverse a concerning trend.

The new law expands the definition of smoking in the Minnesota Clean Indoor Air Act to protect the public from harmful e-cigarette aerosol in public places like restaurants, bars and stores.
