Trib Live reports that a county in Western Pennsylvania has added e-cigarettes to its definition of smoking. Apparently, the net affect of this move is that people can’t vape in the local court-house any longer.
County commissioners on Thursday updated the county’s smoking ban to include electronic cigarettes, devices that emit water vapor to simulate cigarette smoke. The ban includes other smokeless devices that mimic traditional lighted tobacco products such as cigarettes.
Granted, this is a tiny story that impacts maybe a few people at best. However, it’s always disturbing when some place actually redefines the actual meaning of something to fit an agenda. This activity can lead to reckless legislation on larger scales. I’m looking at you, Utah.
