Readers should not miss the CD news report on SZ 's latest move against e-cigrettes. Thumbs up to Shenzhen for its move to ban e-cigarette smoking in public, putting it in the same banned category as cigarette smoking.  There has been a lot of misunderstanding by e-cigarette smokers and members of the public, that it is harmless, hence non-smokers don't object to e-cigarette smoking in public as much as they object to cigarette smoking in public!  e-cigarette fumes are just as bad as secondhand smoke, and banning it in public is absolutely right to protect non smokers!  Now with the law on their side,  non smokers can stand up and ask e-cigarete smokers to stop it in public!

All other cities in China should follow Shenzhen's example and ban e-cigarette smoking in public to protect non smokers!

" According to experts, the e-cigarette is a con as it does not help smokers quit, but actually encourages young and old nonsmokers to take up smoking, eventually trying the real thing. In January, Hangzhou, Zhejiang province revealed its newly revised tobacco control regulations and became the first city to increase restrictions on e-cigarettes in no-smoking areas."

Very true, e-cigarette is a con job, that's why tobacco manufacturers are in it too!  If indeed e-cigarette reduces cigarette-smoking, tobacco manufacturers would be crazy to be in it!  The fact that they are in it tells us e-cigarette helps them increase their smoking market!  What a con!!
Thumbs up to Hangzhou too!  That's the right thing to do!

While it is good to have the law, it is even more important to have it strictly enforced, and this is one area non smokers worry most about because Chinese laws are selfdom enforced, only looks good on paper!  It is to be hoped that SZ and HZ, and other cities, strictly enforce the ban on smoking in public which now includes e-cigarettes!

Both real and e-cigarettes must be banned to protect the public from poisonous smoke and fumes! E-cigarette is a con on the public!
