Sometimes it is the advertisers fault that can lead to consumers being given wrong information specially smoking and smoking related products.

Nurse Amy should do a little research.

It should be understood that the use of electronic cigarettes only superficially resembles smoking, as there is no smoke involved. While certainly it is true that the best health habit is to breathe nothing but air, an anti-electronic cigarette campaign has no benefit other than ensuring the continuation of tobacco use and the drugs related to smoking cessation (at $2.3 BILLION A YEAR) and maladies associated with tobacco use ($?GAZILLION). By far and away, the lion's share of funding for anti electronic cigarette campaigns IS coming DIRECTLY AND INDIRECTLY from pharmaceutical companies, and the most vocal opposition comes from the unreasonably biased and the uninformed.

The base ingredients of electronic cigarette liquid is vegetable glycerin and/or propylene glycol and/or polyethylene glycol 400 - all of which have thoroughly tested and have long been used in foods and pharmaceuticals. The additional flavorings are food-grade materials and the (optional levels of) nicotine is the same as that supplied via pharmaceutical products through patches and gum.

I applaud you.
I do not support the look alike ecigs. I do not like our personal vaporizer to be lumped into the "ecig" moniker but it continues. In doing this it gags my rights to advertise in many places. "ecigs" fall under the tobacco laws and possibly "look alike" rulings in the future.

Our company is homebased. We are not under any "big tobacco "guidelines. The head of the company was a smoker for 50 years, I was a smoker for 43 year. She has not had a cigarette in 5 years and me for 9 months. Personally, I have no desire at all for a "cigarette". We have converted entire families from cigarette smoking to vaping and it is good for our souls to do so. I am always told how much our customers say"Love my Vape!" We are told that there is no selling involved and their really isn't. All we have to do is get them into peoples hands.

The primary concerns voiced by the WHO, CDC, FDA, etc. is that PVs will be gateways to cigarette smoking, and not that PVs are really a far less hazardous alternative to smoking. Understandably, those organizations are concerned with the youth market. Also understandable is that bureaucracies tend to throw the baby out with the bath water.- WHEN BIG PHARMA PAYS THEM TO.

Isn't it weird how the people who seem to hate ecigs are the same ones who won't question the FDA authorizing drugs that have proven side effects that even include DEATH?

Chantix:

...serious skin reactions while taking CHANTIX, some of which can become life-threatening. These can include rash, swelling, redness, and peeling of the skin. Some people can have allergic reactions to CHANTIX, some of which can be life-threatening and include: swelling of the face, mouth, and throat that can cause trouble breathing. If you have these symptoms or have a rash with peeling skin or blisters in your mouth..."

Wellbutrin:
"seizure (convulsions); fast heartbeats; fever, swollen glands, rash or itching, joint pain, or general ill feeling; confusion, trouble concentrating, hallucinations, unusual thoughts or behavior; severe skin reaction -- fever, sore throat, swelling in your face or tongue, burning in your eyes, skin pain, followed by a red or purple skin rash that spreads (especially in the face or upper body) and causes blistering and peeling.
Less serious side effects of bupropion may include:
dry mouth, nausea, stomach pain; headache, dizziness, ringing in your ears; loss of interest in sex; sore throat, muscle pain;
mild itching or skin rash, increased sweating, increased urination; or changes in appetite, weight loss or gain.
This is not a complete list of side effects and others may occur."

Hey, Nurse Amy? I thought the Nightengale Oath was supposed to make you an advocate for the PATIENT, not the STOCK MARKET.

You are correct by offering up the side effects of the pill pushers. And taking Flintstone Vitamins were a gateway drug...As far as I can see, vapes are not getting glamorized the way corporate sponsors were able to glamorize holding a cigarette. Also, you have a choice on whether you WANT nicotine. I do not know of a cigarette company that can come close to making a claim like that. It is simple. Some people chew gum, some people chew their nails..I will vape on regardless.
