Kimberley Winter-Sullivan I use an e-cigarette and would be more then happy to go outside to use it!
Jaz Phillips I don't smoke myself but I stay in the same room as someone that uses E-CIG & has no effect on me at all this is so stupid if they want to lose custom there going the right way about it.
- Electronic cigarettes will be classified as "medicines" under new proposals to tighten up the regulation of the products
- It is estimated that 1.3 million people across the UK use the product, which leaves users inhaling a mist of nicotine instead of smoke
- The Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency will regulate e-cigarettes so there is a consistent amount of nicotine in all licensed products sold over the counter
Some of London's top restaurants reportedly want diners to go outside if they want to puff on electronic cigarettes.
Speaking to the Evening Standard, Bruce Poole, from Michelin starred Chez Bruce said: "We weren't particularly happy about this when it happened for the first time quite recently, because [the e-cigarette] looked real and even gave off an admittedly odourless vapour.
"We chose to do nothing but it caused a few raised eyebrows".
