Can hipsters put down the e-cigs when wanting these?
As the controversy over e-cigarettes continues to spread across the country, with cities proposing bans on shops and the feds mulling regulations, some businesses are taking matters into their own hands. See the picture above, taken at the In-n-Out in Placentia.

If this IN-N-OUT is extremely busy like all the others I've been in then you shouldn't be hanging out in the booth just to smoke (or vape) anyway. You're supposed to clear out and make the booth available to other customers when you're finished eating. It's not Denny's...

Actually, anytime you force anything in your lungs except air, it will have a long term effect. Maybe not now, but I suspect in 30 years, you will see cases of vaping-induced emphysema or COPD.

That's because they're a Christian hypocrite organization, the owner had the original Batmobile from the Michael Keaton movie in his living room from what I hear.

Justice!  Those things are nasty and I don't like breathing in the second hand vape.

But it is douchey looking. You have a tiny fog machine in your mouth with a stupid red or blue light at the tip of it. And it may not be smoking but its replacing the same habit.

That burger grease vapor is probably worst for you! I used to work there and would clean out the grease traps(air vents) twice a day cause there's so much vaporized burger grease in the air

As a non-smoker, I've sat next to someone who was taking hits off an e-cig at a restaurant and I didn't smell a thing. It's one thing to expect a little courtesy, but at some point, you just need to stop being a pussy.

I liked for In n Out in Placentia because that's the one I eat at all the time! I don't really have an opinion on the E-Cig thing yet.

Out of respect I do not vape where you cannot smoke.Only a dumbass would vape inside any food place. But In-Out-Out if you are saying I cannot vape outside on your property then you can go F*ck Yourself! More facts OC Weekly!

Actually kind of glad that place doesn't have a drive-thru as that probably would make traffic even worse around that area!

show may any proof that second hand vapor can harm ANYBODY in ANY way. If not, then all you have is snotty little bitches who want to impose their will on others because their mommies didn't love them, and it makes them angry to see others enjoying life.

Good. If you can't smoke real cigs then stop looking like a douche (cuz ya do) and quit smoking.

@tongue_twister_for_t @whateveryousay  I've been called worse.  There is more to it than just water vapor, not nearly as toxic as second hand tobacco smoke, but not just water vapor.  As far as In-and-Out is concerned they've probably made a legal choice to limit worker liability.  Smoking wasn't banned in restaurants because people didn't like, it was banned under workplace safety.  I've smelled some second hand vape and the one I smelled had a fruity aroma.  If there is scent there is more than just water vapor.  I kind of think the jury is out and when there is enough reliable science behind positions good decisions can be made.  Until then I'll side with caution. This is a great read.  The comments are from some seriously educated folks and you should read those too.
