Council member will review proposed ordinance banning e cigarette and liquid nicotine sale to minors and a fine or jail term to violators.
Dallas, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/15/2013 -- The proposed ordinance banning sale of e cigarette and liquid nicotine to minors will be discussed and reviewed by council members of Orange Park Town council. The ordinance will also ban the use of electronic cigarette where tobacco use is prohibited with violators likely to face a $500 fine or 60 days in jail. The hearing will be at the town hall located at 2042 Park Ave. The council wants to know more about the effects of second hand vapor, addictiveness of e liquid nicotine solution and how the ordinance for the e cig will be enforced.
This ordinance means that e cigarette will be regulated as regular cigarettes; reviews suggest that the proposal is being opposed by smokers who claim that after trying everything else to quit smoking, e cigarette is one alternative that is seemingly working. A local Tom Clingan who has been smoking for 45 years says, “I know a lot of people who have used electronic cigarettes. I've been in offices where people were using and there has not been one person that I know of, that has ever been agitated by the electronic cigarettes.”
As of now in Orange Park the use of e cigs is allowed even where smoking is not but this ordinance will change that, the Tobacco Free Partnership of Clay County supports this ordinance and says, “Studies have shown that the vapor that is emitted from electronic cigarettes still contains numerous chemicals that can be harmful to someone's health .” the main concern of council people is lack of research available which could have helped them make an assessment of the long term effects of electric cigarette.
Experts at DigitalSmoke.org say,” The ban on sale of e cigarette to minors is reasonable and only the best thing to do but limiting the sale of e cigarette in such a way that even adults can’t access it is not something that users of e cigarette are very happy to know. It is important to regulate but do no limit the scope of awareness; even if a few thousands of smokers can benefit somehow from e cigarette as they claim through e cigarette reviews then some breathing space should be given to e cigarette until further research is done on them.”
