When I read an editorial praising the introduction of a law banning E-cigs on school property, I just assumed that's something school administrators would have done anyway. While the products are legal, they do send a mixed message by suggesting smoking is indeed glamorous and somehow OK with the new device.
Schools routinely prohibit things detrimental to health, welfare and good order in the schools. A new law for E-cigs does make for a good press release and it provides one more instance where administrators can just say, 'hey, it's mandated.'
