Two U.K. Hospitals Allow Vape Shops in Bid to Promote Smoking Ban - The New York Times
Ashtrays have been removed from the hospitals’ outdoor smoking areas, and anyone caught smoking on the premises faces a fine of 50 pounds, or $62. The use of e-cigarettes is allowed on the hospitals’ grounds, aside from near doorways, and former smoking shelters have been turned into vaping areas.
The two vape shops are operated by the e-cigarette company Ecigwizard.
