    The Debate Over E-cigarettes
    The use of e-cigarettes is growing rapidly, but smoking them in public may soon be illegal in San Francisco and Santa Clara counties. The electronic devices provide nicotine, but produce vapor instead of smoke. Supporters say they are a less harmful alternative to cigarettes and can be a way to help people quit. Opponents are concerned about the rising use by teens and say they may contain harmful toxins. The FDA does not currently regulate e-cigarettes. Los Angeles and Sunnyvale are among the cities in California to restrict them.
