Anna Kooiman reported this morning on new concerns over electronic cigarettes after kids were poisoned by drinking the liquid nicotine that comes with the devices.

Teens have reportedly been drinking the nicotine on purpose in some instances, mixing it with energy drinks to get a quick high. […]

Just one teaspoon of the liquid nicotine is the equivalent of three packs of cigarettes.

In addition, dogs are also at risk if they get a hold of one of the devices and chew on it. …

FWIW, tobacco companies are not involved in these alarmist e-cig articles in any way.

And they are certainly not lobbying to have them restricted or outlawed.

Because they have zero effect on tobacco sales.

The only motivation here is protecting children.

That’s it.

Really.

If it saves the life of just one child...!

Disregarding the hypocrisy of abortion, of course.

I wish they had been available when I was quitting. Lots of people tell me that they were a lifesaver in helping them to quit.

I suppose they’re deeply concerned about abortion too, then?

Absolutely, in the vein of “protecting a woman’s choice”.

“The only motivation here is protecting children.”

It’s always for the children. Anti gun, car, fossil fuels
etc.. Every time a tard wants to control or limit freedom
it’s always for the children.

Just like homosexual education in elementary schools, its
for the children.

Kids huff gasoline, glue and paint. They inhale NO2 from
cans of whip cream. They even hyperventilate themselves.

“Lawmakers across the country are now looking at new regulations that would require child-proof caps on the vials.”

Oh yea, that’s going to help, maybe for a three year old
and really dump people.

No doubt it will be abused. No doubt it is harmful and
dangerous. And no doubt this is being used as an excuse
to inflate the price on the e-cigs and maybe even get
them banned. After all it’s for the children.

Where do you get cans of compressed air and what are they
for? Just curious.

You huff it maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan.

Or you dust off your computer with it. Its also good at freezing stuff. A friend used it to remove a stuck engine valve. If you turn it upside down, its quite fun.

Oh that stuff. I thought that was liquid nitrogen. Yea, we
used to spray it onto a styrofoam cup and freeze stuff.
Here’s one for you, you can use it and a hair dryer to
take dents out of cars.

How about the fact that it just looks stupid and gay. I’d rather not be forced to look at stupid in the workplace or anywhere else. The blue tooth in the ear is stupid enough. Now I have to watch people puff nicotine vapor out of faux fancy pipes. Stupid! Gay! Retarded!

If the libs really wanted to “help the children”, no more alcohol would be sold in this country. Oh, wait, liberals drink alcohol so that will never be touched.

You don't have to watch, you could look in the mirror instead.

Stupid! Gay! Retarded!

Oh, you were.

if the tobacco companies were smart they’d jump on the e-smoke bandwagon and offer e-juice in all the flavors of the real cigarettes they sell in addition to the specialty flavors.

Evolution in action. Nicotine is toxic at fairly low dosages.

Best Buy...computer dept. compressed air to clean out keyboards and dust bunnies inside the desktop tower.

I’m guessing the stuff is probably inhaled causing a high.

I just thought they wanted an ID, before I knew it and had time to stop it, the cashier scanned my ID.
