I was just wondering if anyone has incorporated Electronic Cigarettes into their company policy on smoking and if so, what their ruling was. It is a contentious issue (I have found) as legally there is nothing to support the claim that they should be captured under the smoke free regulations. Currently the regulations are only concerned with tobacco smoke. I look forward to your responses! Ben

I'd be interested to hear what the views are on this one as well - as most market themselves as being legal for use inside. One example states "E Cigarettes aren't regulated as a tobacco product it is completely legal to smoke anywhere, including establishments where the smoking ban is enforced".
