Vaping Now Prohibited in These Places
The Minnesota Clean Indoor Air Act was updated Thursday with the goal of reducing second hand nicotine produced by vaping. People are no longer allowed to vape in workplaces, restaurants, bars, and public places that already prohibit smoking.
Jan Malcolm, the Minnesota Commissioner of Health, said he hopes the new restrictions show people that vaping is not healthy behavior. "The taste, the flavors, them making it seem like it's almost an extension of an iphone or an extension of electronics that the kids embrace, I think that really leads to kids believing it isn't bad for them," Marco said.
