When this new measure will be implemented as New York's new law, it will cover vaping in the State's Clean Indoor Air Act.

NY joins a growing list of USA states, such as California, Connecticut and New Jersey, that has banned vaping in indoor public spaces such as bars and restaurants, in much the same way they restrict smoking.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the legislation on Monday.

"This measure closes another unsafe loophole in the law, creating a stronger, healthier NY for all", Cuomo said. "As the proud sponsor of this legislation, I am pleased NY will be taking this step to protect New Yorkers from the potential harms of e-cigarettes".

Cuomo said that these products are merchandised as a wholesome option to cigarettes but the actuality is that they also fetch long-term hazards to the well being of users and the nonsmokers around them.

Studies into the long-term health impact of e-cigarettes - which usually contain nicotine - are limited but of the studies that have been completed, there have been mixed results. Though the action ultimately failed, C.L.A.S.H. claimed that the regulation of e-cigarettes as an addendum to the Smoke-Free Air Act was unconstitutional.

The bill is the latest passed by the State Legislature to combat the rise in e-cigarette and vaping by youths and in public places including bars, said Senate Health Committee Chairman Kemp Hannon (R-Garden City).

Vaping in public indoor spaces was prohibited in New York City four years ago, according to Fortune. They contain a nicotine-based liquid that is vaporized and inhaled and are often marketed as less damaging substitutes to traditional tobacco smoking methods.

Several other major cities including Boston, New Orleans, and Chicago have also banned the practice, Fortune reported.

It's no secret that the e-cigarette/vaping industry is big business.
