International Airports in Miami, Minneapolis, and Las Vegas are Ecig Friendly
Included in last week’s news article was the recent development that the TSA has officially announced that electronic cigarettes are safe for travel in carry-on luggage. However, did you know there are also a number of United States airports that are 100% e-cigarette friendly?
For example, McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas contains a designated smoking area outside their many terminals. However, electronic cigarette connoisseurs can enjoy their SmokeStik ULTRA anywhere throughout the airport! Vape in the terminal, next to the food court, even waiting for boarding in the passenger area. It is a wonderful illustration of how harmless the emitted water vapor truly is.
Here is a list of U.S. airports where e-cigs are currently permitted, and where they are banned:
|Electronic Cigarettes Permitted||Electronic Cigarettes Banned|
|McCarran International Airport (Las Vegas, NV)||Los Angeles International Airport (Los Angeles, CA)|
|Miami International Airport (Miami, FL)||San Francisco International Airport (San Francisco, CA)|
|Tampa International Airport (Tampa, FL)||Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (Seattle, WA)|

After Electronic Cigarette Ban in New York, Smoking Rate Increases
This last April, the New York governing body revised the 2002 “Smoke-Free Air Act” to include the revolutionary electronic cigarette innovation that had become so popular. Thus, all e-cig smoking and vaporizing has now been officially banned indoors and in all New York public entertainment venues. It seems as though former traditional cigarette smokers who had moved on to electronic vaping lost the incentive to smoke Ecigs, and have thus reverted to old unhealthy habits.
Smoking rates in New York are up from 14 to 16 percent, which is extremely rare and against nearly all nationwide trends. Due to this effect, some are lobbying to reverse the new amendment, arguing that the ban is a direct cause of the smoking increase. The fight for electronic cigarettes is happening all over the world, and we must do our part to support healthy living and the future of smoking everywhere.
