Q: What is an e cigarette?

A: An e cigarette is an electronic inhaler device that was created to be a substitute for tobacco smoking.  A heating element in the unit vaporizes a liquid.  Some units release a flavored vapor.  Originally designed to look like cigarettes, newer brands and models are getting away from the cigarette “look.”   Restricted use of the e cigarette is beginning to occur.  For example, the Fort Smith Public Library’s board of trustees voted recently to ban the e-cigarettes, as well as smokeless tobacco, from use in all its libraries.  The library’s previous policy only banned smoking. Because these electronic inhalers are fairly new on the scene, health issues, risks and benefits of use, and legislation are all still pending.
