We've been hearing how Wales may become the first part of the UK to ban folks from smoking e-cigarettes in public places.
Welsh ministers are saying people who 'vape' should be subject to the same restrictions as people who smoke (so, not allowed in restaurants and pubs and offices but allowed in private home and outside spaces).
They argue that being allowed to 'smoke' e-cigarettes anywhere (as you are now) gives the impression that smoking in public is normal and acceptable.
They also say that children could be tempted to try vaping, which could lead to nicotine addiction (e-cigarettes contain nicotine) and be a gateway to 'proper' smoking.
Those opposing the idea of a vaping ban say there's no proven link between vaping and smoking, and placing restrictions on vaping could make life much harder for those who have swapped to e-cigarettes in an attempt to quit smoking.
So what do you think?
Do you think children are more likely to want to try e-cigarettes if they see adults using them in public places?
And do you think kids who vape are more likely to move on to try 'real' cigarettes?
Do please post and let us know!
