Robyn Tigerbite Dent's curator insight, March 17, 2014 11:12 PM

Electronic cigarettes are a hot topic in my workplace at the moment. Legislation states it is an offence to smoke a lit cigarette in a taxi and there is a penalty infringement notice imposed on offenders. However, is an electronic cigarette considered a cigarette? The current legislation is not very clear and the matter has not been tested in court. Nicotine is carcinogenic and these electronic cigarettes may be just as toxic to human health. It seems to be another case of where legislation hasn't been able to keep up with technology and has left gaps of uncertainty. I believe to smoke these cigarettes in a workplace when the effects on health are unclear is irresponsible and leaves employers open to law suits in the future.

However, after it became clear that electronic cigarettes had reached such a high level of popularity that it was impossible to stop their growth, tobacco companies decided that the best thing to do was to get involved in the e-cigarette industry.
