The law also bans the use of e-cigarettes in any vehicle used to transport children or school personnel.

"These items are marketed as a healthier alternative to cigarettes, however the reality is they likewise convey long haul dangers to the health of users and those around them", Cuomo said in a release.

Many counties in NY have already banned the use of e-cigarettes in public places but the bill (S.2543A/ A.516A), signed into law yesterday by Governor Andrew Cuomo, makes the ban uniform. "This measure closes another risky loophole in the law".

Electronic nicotine and vapor delivery systems, which include e-cigarettes, vaping pens, e-hookah and similar devices, typically contain nicotine.

On the first, Cooper appeared to push Terrance Mitchell but the officials picked up the flag and gave Cooper the 38-yard TD. One of the best running backs in the previous decade entered the field from the sidelines, joining the whole incident.

NY joins a growing list of states that have banned vaping in indoor public spaces such as bars and restaurants, in much the same way they restrict smoking.

Another pending bill seeks to require e-cigarette sellers to register with the state as tobacco retailers do - a tactic to mitigate sales to youths. Nicotine is among the ingredients that can be found in e-cigarettes.

However, critics note that little is known about the health effects of using e-cigarettes. As of this week, vaping wherever standard smoking is prohibited will also be banned in NY state. New York State has outlawed e-cigarettes in indoor public spaces, joining a growing number of states across the country.

The law is the latest step in a push by many state and local governments to put e-cigarettes on the same level as tobacco products. Mike Davoli of the American Cancer Society said that the law ensures that you can go to a restaurant with your kids and be sure that neither you nor the kids are exposed to an electronic cigarette. "The FDA classifies e-vapor products as tobacco products because they contain nicotine derived from tobacco".
