    This is bad news. They don't even have a solid reason to ban it.

    I can't believe this. They don't ban alcohol and regular cigars, which are way unhealthier than e-cigs, yet they ban E-Cig stores? It doesn't make sense at all.

    A lot of it is due to a lack of information ont he part of the people passing these laws. It's a shame really

    So why did they ban it? They didn't say why in the article and it also doesn't make sense to ban something without a reason.

    In the STORES THAT SELL THEM? That's outrageous. That's so unnecessary and obtrusive. Tobacco is just very unpopular these days and people are ganging up on it because it is a popular position to take.

    While I disagree with banning them in public, I understand that some places feel the need to. To ban them being used in the vape shops, though, just seems ridiculous. It's not like they're selling anything illegal and it's not hurting anyone. Are they trying to push them out of the city in general?

    I'd have to go back and read through it but I believe it is pretty much the same as other cities where they are trying to ban them in all places that smoking is banned, which would include all places of business

    Well, it does happen in mass right now in my country. I do not know why (nobody does) but people are just afraid of it.

    Sure that there is a lobby trying to make people sell less e-cigs, but at the same time this ban makes no sense because vaping doesn't hurt anyone around it and second, how can people sell them if the potential buyers can't try them?

    This doesn't make any sense, it has to be allowed at least inside the E-Cig stores, it's like it says in the article, a lot of their customers are cigarette smokers that are curious about it and thinking about vaping, the stores need to be able to properly demonstrate the product!

    Why would they ban vaping for no reason? And why in E-Cig stores? It doesn't make any sense! I think that customers should be able to try out the product before buying it. It's just so stupid!

    They are trying to make e-cigs equivalent to cigarettes in terms of banning, but that is ridiculous because both things can't be compared. It's just the power of money speaking...

    This is kinda ridiculous.... why would they ban vaping in the stores that sell it?? It seems that the few people who hold power make laws just to say they are working. It makes no sense to ban vaping in these stores. If you want to make laws that make a REAL difference then start with fighting and preventing crime, not banning vaping in E-CIG SHOPS....

    This is just ridiculous. I understand banning it in certain public places but right in an e-cigg store? We have a casino in my town and they considered banning it there, even in the hotel rooms, which made no sense to me. At least that one failed.

    So true, it's like banning cars from an auto stand or gambling from the casinos, I think people should be able to try them at the stores, not vape, but at least try.
