NYC Council Measure Raising Cigarette Purchase Age To 21 Now Includes E-Cigs
October 30, 2013
 
 
Raising the age to 21 will reduce electronic cigarette use among young people, according to the new version of the bill, unveiled Tuesday at the Council's Health Committee hearing.
 
 
The number of high school students who have tried e-cigarettes -- which come in flavors such as bubble gum and watermelon -- has risen from 4.7% in 2011 to 10% in 2012, according to a Centers for Disease Control report cited in the bill.
 
E-cigarette advocates flocked to protest the change -- including some who puffed smokeless butts while the meeting was in session.
"I used to smoke almost a pack a day. They helped me quit," said Ilona Orshansky, 29, who owns the Vapor Lounge New York in Williamsburg, which sells e-cigarette products. "I don't have to smoke those nasty analog cigs anymore."
 
 
Although many puffers do claim that e-cigs help them quit their tobacco habit, the CDC has said there is no evidence they "promote successful long-term quitting" among smokers.
Like traditional cigarettes, e-butts supply nicotine, but users get their fix via water vapor, not smoke.
 
 
Opponents of e-cigarettes say they are a dangerous gateway to nicotine addiction at a young age.
"Exposure to nicotine during adolescence may lead to a lifetime of nicotine addiction," the bill states.
Although they have been around for decades, e-cigarettes haven't been popular until recently and their effects on smokers' health haven't been studied in depth.
