    The US state of New York is joining 10 other states in banning 'vaping' in areas where tobacco smoking is already prohibited, but with e-cigarettes becoming an increasingly big business, health officials are struggling to regulate the use of the product.

    Electronic cigarettes are becoming more popular, with millions of people 'vaping' around the world.

    As the use of e-cigarettes has become a multibillion-dollar industry, scrutiny has increased and many US states are beginning to introduce regulations.

    They are implementing laws that would treat them more like traditional tobacco cigarettes.

    Al Jazeera's Gabriel Elizondo reports from New York.
