There has been an increase in shops that sell electronic cigarettes in the state, and the sight of people 'vaping' is has become less unusual. Many users of e-cigarettes have switched from cigarettes to better their health.

Although e-cigarettes are becoming more commonplace, there are still people who oppose them. Opposers claim that the long term effects of electronic cigarettes are unknown, and there is no way to know if smoking around others will be harmful.

Many bars, restaurants, and other public places throughout the Garden State prohibit the use of  e-cigarettes indoors. Defenders of electronic cigarettes say that the vapor that is released is not harmful, and is not as bothersome as cigarette smoke.
