NYC on the Ban Wagon



NEW YORK (AP) -- E-smokers in New York City will have to head for the exits. The city council has voted to expand the city's indoor smoking ban to include electronic cigarettes. E-cigarettes heat a nicotine solution and emit a puff of vapor that manufacturers say is harmless. Most scientists agree that e-cigarettes are less dangerous than tobacco. But the e-cigs are still highly addictive. Some anti-smoking activists say it isn't clear whether they are truly safe.


NEW YORK (AP) -- Foam won't go home. That's the plan in the Big Apple. The New York City Council has unanimously approved a proposal that would ban foam takeout food containers. The plan calls for a yearlong study on whether the foam containers can be recycled effectively. If not, they would be outlawed. But plastic backers note the foam trays and cups are cheap, light weight and help to keep the contents hot.
