Smoker's advocacy group to sue New York City over e-cigarettes

NEW YORK (AP) - E-smokes are generating heat in the Big Apple.

A smokers' advocacy group is suing New York City, seeking to toss out a ban on electronic cigarettes.

The suit was filed yesterday by the NYC Citizens Lobbying Against Smoker Harassment.

The smokeless smokes are now barred in all areas where regular cigarettes are banned.

The lawsuit contends lumping e-cigarettes and tobacco together in the regs violates the city charter.
