  5. Ontario Bans E-Cigarettes, Vaporizers Where Smoking Already Prohibited

    An article below from Global News discusses the Ontario legislation banning the use of personal vaporizers where smoking is prohibited. Well I don't completely disagree with the new rules I believe that grouping smokers and vapers into the same category isn't solving the real problem. Should vapers be able to use their device in a restaurant or a store? The answer to this is NO. Everyone should be concious and respectful of others around them and not interfer with their personal space, I don't think someone who switched from smoking to vaping would a appreciate someone's vapour in their face while their eating.  That being said one of the main issues I have with these rules is how they are grouping smokers with vapers together. The major difference between smoking and vaping is that while smoking produces second hand smoke, which is a known carcinogen, vaping does not as it is not combustible. This factor alone should be enough to establish that smoking and vaping are nowhere near the same threat. Also one other point to be made is the Ontario Government is telling ex-smokers who have quit smoking using a vape to now congregate with the smokers exposing them to second hand smoke one of the reasons why they quit smoking. Does that sound fair? Legislations need to recognize that vaping isn't a fad and its here to stay.  I agree that there needs to be regulation and legislation but it has to be fair.
