A different report indicates that the National Park Service wants to ban "e-cigarette" from national parks. The new ordinance is to not smoke e-cigarettes in enclosed places like restaurants and visitor centers. The report also states that "e-cigarettes" can be dangerous to a person's health.

E-cigattes is most especially dangerous to the health of the young people who are mostly using the device. Spokesperson of the National Park Service states in the same report that the banning of e-cigarette is the same as banning cigarette smoking in enclosed areas. It is also added that the regulations are updated in a way that a new device is added to the existing rule about smoking.
