Not allowing e-cigarettes to be used indoors is a smart move for cities and towns that want to preserve the health of their community. Adding e-cigarettes to smoke-free laws is also practical.

We have come too far, and battled far too long with the tobacco industry, to make the mistake of trusting the e-cigarette manufacturers to do what is right for America's children. While we wait for the scientific data to prove the harms of vaping, let's protect our middle and high schoolers from a lifelong addiction and a high risk of cancer.
