    Question What are the laws in GA and AL?

    I live in Atl and visit Birmingham often and am curious what laws are currently in place or soon to be put in place regarding the use and sells of E-cig products and liquids?

    I travel down to atlanta pretty frequently and it is strictly prohibited in workplaces including gas stations, restaurants and anywhere where it isn't restricted to adults in all of Dekalb County. Bars and family owned businesses are a case by case situation. It is fair game on the streets, sidewalks or anywhere outside just be polite about it.

    I live in NEWNAN GA and ATLANTA is about 20 minutes away and I have not had any problems any where I go. I have been to a couple of waffle houses and they ask me to make a cloud for them. Lol

    So far, so good in Birmingham. The Birmingham city council exempted e-cigs from the smoking ban they passed a couple of years ago. Unfortunately Bessemer and Vestavia Hills (i think) included e-cigs in their smoking bans.

    The Alabama Senate just passed SB168,a clean air act that specifically exempts e-cigs. The bill has been referred to the house, and is under review by the House health committee. (The house version of last year's clean air act also exmepted e-cigs, so i'm hopeful that the exemption will remain in place in this year's version.)

    Even with that, there are still far many more than not places here in Bama that will tell you they don't allow it because it is the same as smoking. We were even on a carnival cruise and got told the same thing and we were out in the open on the Lido deck. And none of them are interested in hearing it is not smoking and there is no second hand health risks and plenty of scientific studies to prove it. I'm afraid the vast majority of the world population is ignorant of the studies and just exactly what vaping is anyways. Most think it is a subculture even cult and a few think it's the work of evil. So mostly we just avoid the whole issue and treat vaping as if everyone assumes we are smoking. Pretty sad but there it is. I have family members that are sensitive to cigarette smoke and they tell me the vaping doesn't bother them but they can smell it and like it, they think of it like an air freshener, just a different nonirritating scent than cinnamon or white linen or wintergreen.

    That's interesting 350, I've never had anyone give me a hard time about vaping, or say 'no' when i asked if it was ok to vape. Maybe i just don't get out that much.

    I'm surprised how many people say to me "those e-cigs have more chemicals than cigarettes". I of course say that's simply not true, but they heard it on the news or read an article about it.So, no matter what I say they have their minds made up.

    I have a brother in law that works and lives in Birmingham and other family in Tuscaloosa that vapes and they seem to think it's about like it is here in Huntsville. Remember the days setting in a restaurant after a meal and lighting up an analog. Try that today only with an APV. You get stared at like you're some kind of weirdo. I've had people ask me to quit smoking LOL. And if you think people understand the difference, try vaping in a movie theater. Personally I'm too afraid, you might get shot like that guy texting his babysitter.

    I've gotten that too. since we relegate our public vaping to smokers areas we are getting more and more questions from smokers. We try to educate, I explain it vaporizers and does not combust, etc etc. But for every smoker that is attentive there are plenty non-smokers that never ask and just assume it is one and the same or worse.
