Kate Brown (D-Ore.) signs a bill banning the online sale of nicotine-containing vaping products to state residents—to protect the children, of course. She approved the restrictive law despite convincing evidence that limiting access to e-cigarettes drives users, especially young people, to traditional cigarettes that pose greater health risks than their high-tech counterparts.

4 2020; Table 1). Policies with components covering smokefree outdoor plazas/malls/boulevards were common (80%; 8/10 councils), with the policy of one of the remainder being classified as “unclear”. But only five councils (50%) included a vapefree policy for the outdoor areas covered. Most councils (80%) had some policy around smokefree signage. In three of these (30%), the signage policy specifically mentioned signage in te reo Māori, but only two mentioned vapefree signage. The Hutt City policy specifically stated: “Signage does not include a ‘no vaping’ message”. A total of 60 relevant pedestrianised sites with permanent seating were identified and surveyed (52 plazas, 6 malls, and 2 boulevards) (Table 2). Of these 63% were officially designated smokefree in the council’s smokefree policy. Smokefree signage was only present in 15% (9/60) of the total sites and in 24% (9/38) of the designated smokefree sites. In these designated sites, the average number of smokefree signs was 1.4 (range: 0 to 14; Table 2). In the sites with smokefree signage, 44% had at least some signs with te reo Māori wording (eg, Figure 1) and 22% had some signs where the smokefree message was just part of a larger sign (eg, Figure 2). There were no vapefree signs at any of the sites and no signs mentioned any enforcement details (eg, telephone numbers for complaints). Qualitative issues included some very small smokefree signs (under 10 cm by 10 cm in area; eg, Figure 2), and some signs were located where the intent was unclear (eg, on the side of a building where the sign could potentially be interpreted as indicating a smokefree indoor area). At sites where tables were present, 12% had ash trays on the tables. But none of the designated smokefree sites had ash trays present on the tables. .
