Editor's note: A revised anti-smoking ban took effect on Jan 1 in Hangzhou, East China's Zhejiang Province, prohibiting e-cigarette use in the same places where smoking is not allowed. Described as the most severe move ever in tobacco control, the regulation stipulates that offenders are required to pay a fine of up to 20,000 yuan. While the use of e-cigarettes is not regulated in many other cities, should they follow suit?
