Since the recent banning of smoking outside businesses in Canberra I have noticed many a friend and acquaintance purchasing the electronic cigarette. Now I myself am a smoker but wonder if this is going too far.
These battery powered cigarettes use a vapour solution and can have nicotine or a non-nicotine solution within them. They usually look exactly like a cigarette with some glowing red or even blue at the tip.
I have seen these being used in clubs and pubs, my partner says his boss even uses his in the workplace. When noticed by staff the offender is asked to leave until they realise its electronic and are then allowed to stay and continue to ‘smoke’ inside.
What are your thoughts on this? I don’t know much about the possible, if any, health risks to others associated with these.
