Communities banning e-cigarettes as study shows they can cut tobacco-related deaths
PARKER, Colo. -- The City of Parker has banned e-cigarettes for minors. It joins a growing number of communities cracking down on the devices including Edgewater, Lakewood and Ft. Collins. E-cigarettes help to gradually reduce the amount of nicotine until the user is weaned off of it. A new study, partly funded by the National Institutes of Health, says e-cigarettes may cut tobacco-related deaths, but health experts say they can also attract young people who never intended on using nicotine in the first place, putting their developing brain at risk.
