Jesmond puts the e-cigarette to the test
Smoking is usually not permitted in pubs, bars and restaurants, but when it comes with an ‘e’ some facilities make an exception.
E-cigarettes contain pure nicotine and can be consumed without combustion. Therefore it is believed to be healthier than the the usual intake of tobacco. Amid the recent debate whether the e-cigarette should be banned for under-18s, JesmondLocal reporters Samantha Killebrew and Marlene Loesken took an e-cigarette to Jesmond.
