Don't smoke but seems to help friends who quit smoking.
Are these allowed in restaurants and bars in the USA?
I see that you can add flavors and nicotine to the cartridge.
Doesn't that change things up if its more than steam coming out of that e-cigarette?
As with smoking, it will depend on the jurisdiction and the business. In my (limited) experience, they are treated the same as traditional cigarettes. If smoking is permitted, e-cigarettes are. No smoking = no e-cigarettes.
I honestly think e-cigarettes are so relatively new that restaurants and regulators haven't figured out how to handle them.They do not cause second hand smoke, so I cannot see how local and state governments can justify blanket bans. I do have one friend who is very sensitive to perfumes and finds the steam irritating, but no more so than the cologne, perfume, soap, etc...
I saw a guy with one at a bar over the weekend here in CO, where smoking inside is banned. Nobody said anything.
