There are 28 comments on the Humboldt Beacon story from Mar 13, 2014, titled E-cigarettes: How should they be regulated? Local experts say 'vaping' not as harmless as it may .... In it, Humboldt Beacon reports that:

Jay McCubbrey, a health education specialist at the Humboldt County Department of Health and Human Services, said there's a lot of misinformation about e-cigarettes. "A lot of people believe the claims by people who sell these products, that they contain fairly harmless water vapor and can be smoked anywhere, but that's not true," he said.

Gee. Four posts to reply to one.
Like I said, I am not playing semantic games with you. I am in favor of e-cig bans. I went over my reasons, Nothing says you have to agree with them. You are an addict and I really don't care what you think.
Suppose I was a nicotine addict?

This somehow removes your burden of providing a substantive argument?

Don't think so.

Your being a control addict does that.

Still.
I did not provide a reason YOU agreed with.

I provided you with a substantive argument. Just because you do not like the argument and I will not play your semantics games does not change the fact that it is a substantive argument. In fact, it is substantive enough that lawmakers are using it to make smoking bans include e-cigs.

"There is NOTHING to PROVE that e-cigs are safe.", a note about the possibility of artifical flavoring vs. natural flavoring being used, and when pressed, you said it didn't matter to you whay they're banned.

This is a "substantive argument"? To a politician, possibly. Why? They want votes.

To anyone else?

Not so much.

The argument works for me. I can understand your position, being on the losing side and all.

I'm sure it does, but it really isn't an argument.
