Smoking Showdown in Duluth Over E-Cigarettes

[KSTP TV, September 11, 2013] Despite their increasing popularity, city leaders in Duluth are trying to ban electronic cigarettes.

It's not the first community to prohibit the devices, and it's creating a smoking showdown over where you can power up an e-cigarette in public.

Julee Moorlag is a tobacco intervention coordinator with Allina Health at Mercy and Unity Hospitals. She says, "Until we know more on their safety and what the long-term health risk might be to those using them and those breathing them I think it's better to push them away."
