Smokers’ rights group sues NYC to overturn e-cig ban

Citizens Lobbying Against Smoker Harassment (CLASH), the group that successfully sued to overturn the smoking ban in New York state public parks, just filed a lawsuit to overturn New York City’s recent ban on the use of e-cigs in public places. Rather than address the unresolved question of whether e-cigs are harmful to your health, CLASH is arguing the case on a technicality. New York’s constitution says that laws must address only one subject, and that subject must be reflected in the title. We’re fighting a cult, and it’s the same cult, says Audrey Silk, founder of CLASH, which now has nearly 2,000 members between Facebook and its email list.
