Rockland Congresswoman Takes on Teen Vaping

Rockland’s Congresswoman is on a crusade against teen vaping. That’s done with those handheld battery-powered vaporizers, also known as e-cigarettes, which simulate smoking without burning tobacco. Their use has been at the center of many healthcare concerns. Congresswoman Nita Lowey held a roundtable discussion in Westchester about the dangers of vaping earlier this week, and says e-cigarettes make it easier for kids to turn to tobacco …

Lowey chairs the House Appropriations Committee, and included an increase of $40 million for the Office on Smoking and Health in the House-passed spending bill for next year.
