Oppose Bill SB-648 and Re-Classification Of Electronic Cigarettes
Protect Your Rights To Use The Smoke FREE Electronic Cigarette!
Don't let California re-classify the Electronic Cigarettes as a Hazard To Human Health, and strip you of your rights to vape freely in wide open outside areas.
If enacted, this bill would: Ban the use of vapor products wherever smoking is banned. Among those provisions most likely to impact users are those that would:
Permit landlords to ban e-cigarette use in private homes. (Section 2)
Ban e-cigarette use inside or within 20 feet of any public building or in a vehicle owned by the state. (Section 5)
Ban e-cigarette use in hospitals and medical facilities, except in specifically defined rooms where smoking is allowed. (Sections 7 and 8)
Declares that the use of electronic cigarettes “is a hazard to the health of the general public,” and would include e-cigarettes in all future smoking bans passed in California. (Section 14)
Ban e-cigarette use in workplaces. Violations would be punishable by fines of $100, $200, and $500. (Section 15) Ban e-cigarette use in railroads and air carriers. (Section 16)
