Georgia bill would make public vaping a crime

A Georgia bill, Senate Bill 47, would make it a crime to use vaping products in public, The Filter reports.

If passed, the bill would ban the use of vaping products in all public places where burning cigarettes is prohibited under Georgia’s 2005 Smoke-Free Air Act. Violators will be fined between $100 and $500. The bill would also make public smoking offenses a misdemeanor — in Georgia, that means up to a year in prison and the inability to obtain certain jobs.

Under the legislation, the definition of smoking will be revised to read “The term includes the use of an electronic smoking device that produces an aerosol or vapor, or the use of any oral smoking device in order to circumvent smoking bans”.
