Vaping Ban Upheld By Federal Court By Bryan Le07/24/17
Federal appeals court judges issued a controversial ruling that some are calling a dangerous interpretation of the law.
No ripping clouds in the sky.
A federal court has stamped out a challenge to the Department of Transportation’s ban on e-cigarettes on commercial flights. E-cigarettes were added to the list of banned tobacco products last year in order to protect passengers from a vaper’s secondhand mists on all commercial U.S. flights as well as international flights to and from the U.S.
Rep. Duncan Hunter made headlines last year for busting out a vape pen in the middle of a Transport Committee meeting, and now the California congressman is back at it again. Hunter showed his disdain for a bill that would ban e-cigs on airplanes by casually puffing on not one but two separate vaping devices during a meeting on Tuesday.
