Well my question is with the appeal of being able to sit down to a meal with you family without having to get up to smoke, or enjoy a movie with out counting the minutes till the credits, or being able to go out to a bar not having to go outside to smoke being such a big draw for smokers to try vaping, and the thus far shown lower risk that vapor has to cigarettes; do they really have the right to remove this motivation that could lead to millions of lives being improved or saved because of a possibly non-existent risk?
Also I love how all the ban supporters always say that the dozens of studies that have been done don't exist.
Also also what about stealth vape. If I'm not exhaling vapor then what is the level or risk. It's a very complicated question that's getting litigation way too soon based off of often vague or totally wrong information.
You are right Who! There are many complicated questions. The one I keep seeing around is with 0nic juice. Alot of the hatred for ecigs revolves around the "evils" of nicotine. So what about 0nic juice? Can it be regulated the same? If there's no nicotine then there's no link to tobacco.
The only real world experience I've had with this subject is a Canadian ecig company that was bullied by HC so much that they shut down. The main issue was the nic but they decided that they couldn't stay in business selling only 0nic juice.
Many, many complicated questions.
I could go on so much about this lol. I will say one more thing though. People appear to mistake this for a "personal liberties" issue and fail to realize that it's about the health and well-being of millions of smokers. If people really looked at places like here and the ECF, they might realize this.
The biggest rub for me is that the local cities, state governments, and federal government are chomping at the bit to regulate e-cigs as traditional “sin products”. When did the government get into the business of making money? People are trying to get off analogs for many reasons and they still demand their cut from us. How on God’s green earth can they say it should be classified as a “sin product”? Tea got thrown into a harbor because people thought they were being taxed unfairly. What’s next, taxing fast food and coffee to save the poeple? Smokers are taxed twice when you think about it. Enough is enough. IMHO!
Hey guys, I saw this article got updated from CASAA: CASAA: Call to Action! California E-Cigarette Usage Ban -- SB 648 (UPDATED). The Senate is having a hearing on 4/17/13. This article has tons of info on how you can help.
I noticed that one myself and have already got my mails out. I encourage everyone even if you don't live in CA to do this.
