Back in the day, cigarettes were openly smoked at most places of employment.  But now a days most places ban cigarettes.  But what about electronic cigarettes?  Should you be allowed to smoke these at your work?

The other day I was out running errands and I walked into a place where an employee was openly smoking an electronic cigarette.  My first thought was, wow I didn't know you were allowed to do that.  And then I started to wonder how many places of business allow their employees to do this.

Now let me begin by saying that I use to smoke cigarettes.  A lot of cigarettes.  When I found out that I was going to have my son, I stopped and have never picked up that habit again.

To be honest, I don't really have a problem with electronic cigarettes.  They seem a lot healthier than regular cigarettes and have no smell to them.  I have actually been around a lot of people who are smoking them and besides seeing it, I had no idea they were smoking.  There is no smoke or smell that is given off.

But should they be allowed to be smoked in the work place?  Does it seem unprofessional or am I over reacting?
