In this Tuesday May 3, 2011 picture, Kim Thompson exhales vapor from her e-cigarette outside her new business called "The Vaporium" in Lakewood, Wash. Thompson, a 20-year smoker, opened the business selling electronic cigarettes or personal vaporizers as an alternative to traditional cigarettes in January and says the business is doing well. The Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department is considering a ban on battery-powered electronic cigarettes that deliver nicotine without smoking. The News Tribune reports that regulations proposed Wednesday, May 4, 2011 would ban e-smoking &amp;mdash; or "vaping" &amp;mdash; in the same public places where the use of real cigarettes and cigars are prohibited by state law. King County adopted such a ban in January.
