E-cigarettes become a hit in Kansas

WICHITA, Kansas - Some people in Kansas are looking for ways to beat a new indoor smoking ban in the state.

“E-Cigarettes” have started turning up in bars and restaurants. They look and draw like the real thing, and give smokers a shot of nicotine. They have a light-emitting tip instead of a cigarette’s burning ash.

But with only a small amount of nicotine vapor released, there is no second-hand smoke. The Kansas Attorney General says “E-Cigarettes” are not banned because they do not use tobacco.
