Yeah, a truly valid method of decreasing smoking, and they want to tax it so people have to keep smoking anyway. That's really smart.

The E Cigarette is a means of drug and flavor transportation into the human body to which the medical establishment wants any profits associated with thus denying the other industries (candy) or any social profitable establishment like the liquor or future lounges for use of the E Cigarette product which includes marijuana if ever approved.

Remember the controversies of the PEZ candy dispensers in the 1950 because the dispenser could be used for medication. Same horse manure with a new face. This is just more medical greed by rectal licking politicians following the money of the medical lobbying industry.

Certainly shows that public safety concerns take a back seek to revenue generation.

So you don't believe in freedom of any sort. Why don't you live in Iran?

I know people who have quit...using e-cigs.

But they don't come from either big pharma or big tobacco.

Consequently, of course, they are under attack.

And they do not contain the 4000 odd chemicals of tobacco, many of which are carcinogens, nor carbon monoxide, so they are pretty harmless. By the warped logic of the do-gooding control freaks in this world, that means they should be banned because they make smoking "more acceptable". Forgetting the whole reason smoking became unacceptable in the first place.

Grow a backbone and stand up for freedom.

You want freedom? Quit smoking. I know people who have quit a la cold turkey. Try using a little willpower.

Addiction is part of the republican (ALEC) means of controlling the society for profits. The revamping of the mental health industry and the introduction of mind drugs from the MKULTRA era happened under the Bush Sr presidency (1989) with Prozac and continued forward with other mind drugs , anti-depressants and anti-psychotic drugs.

Land of the free? Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness? Nobody is making you smoke? Or did you mean sin? Careful there, Nano - you are sounding exactly like a religious holier-than-thou moralist.
People who are using electronic cigarettes aren't smoking. If you have a point about public health,(which I don't correlate with any of your statements) Save your rants for fast food jumbo meals. I notice that you don't troll on any issues about Chantrix, Wellbutrin, etc. side-effects and profits.

There is no smoke from e-cigarettes.

More accurately, it is a vaping thread in the smoking forum. The anomaly is that someone thinks it is a name calling thread.

You insulted me first, bigot. Why can't you keep your bigotry out of normal forums? Why do you feel the need to infect every forum with your hate?

Well of course he did, showing you how stupid you are is insulting to the uneducated.
