2018 is an election year, and an possible amendment to Florida’s state constitution is currently on the ballot that could change the way (and places) we vape! This November, Florida voters will vote on 24 proposed amendments to the state’s constitution. One of these proposed amendments, Proposal 65, is focused on banning electronic cigarettes and vaping from the workplace, which is extended to include, restaurants, malls, movie theaters, etc.
Florida Politics, As Usual
In a state like Florida, where e-cigarettes and vaping are increasing in popularity and use by former tobacco-users, one would think the amendment would be voted down fairly easily. Not when politics is involved! Proposal 65, the ban on e-cigs in the workplace, will appear on ballots paired with Proposal 91, which is a ban on offshore drilling for oil and gas in state waters.
If there’s one thing that Floridians will always vote in favor of, it’s our invaluable and beloved coastal waters. This leaves the ban on e-cig amendment in a precarious situation, where it almost surely will be overlooked on the ballot. CASAA, the Consumer Advocates for Smoke Free Alternatives Association, is currently running a campaign to help vapers quickly and effectively contact state representatives and urge them to remove the indoor vaping ban from the ballot in it’s entirety.
