Monday, 17 February 2014 07:45 Published in Health & Fitness

   Smokers of electronic cigarettes will have to go outdoors like smokers of traditional tobacco products at one St. Louis area college campus.  The Belleville News Democrat reports SIU-Edwardsville has banned electronic cigarettes indoors.  

   Campus officials told the paper that they felt the need to set a policy on E-cigarettes, since its the state's indoor smoking ban doesn't address them.  Electronic cigarettes deliver nicotine via water vapor instead of smoke from burning tobacco.  University officials say there's not enough data on the safety of the water vapors to non-smokers nearby.

   Under SIUE's new policy, E-cigarettes may only be used outdoors, at least 15 feet away from an entrance.

Illinois Senators consider car smoking ban

Monday, 17 February 2014 07:13 Published in Local News

   Illinois lawmakers are considering a measure that would make it illegal for adults to smoke in a motor vehicle if there are children present.  Officials with the American Lung Association say they support the measure as a way to educate parents about the dangers of second-hand smoke to their child.  

   Senate bill 2659 would make it illegal to smoke with a minor in the vehicle.  Violators would face a one-hundred-dollar fine, but police wouldn't be able to pull drivers over just for violate the smoking ban.  

   Fourteen other states are considering similar measures.  Five states, including Arkansas and Louisiana have already made smoke-free cars the law.
