Battery-powered cigarette evades smoking ban

Some people have found a way to get around smoking bans that are in effect in many communities in the country. An Iowa woman went online and found a battery-powered cigarette. It's called Njoy. It looks and works like a cigarette, but when you inhale there's no tobacco, just a hit of nicotine. The smoke is actually water vapor.

Kate Johnston says she's been smoking for over 35 years. She says it works and she gets the same buzz as a regular cigarette.
