Laws in New York and Chicago making electronic cigarettes subject to the same regulations as tobacco are taking effect, and their sellers and users are steadfast in their opposition.
The New York banalong with the measure in Chicago, one that previously went into effect in Los Angeles and federal regulations proposed last weekare keeping debate smoldering among public health officials, the e-cigarette industry and users.

So its the thought of smoking the health weenies are against.
Unless its pot.
I guess the second-hand smoke Nazis weren’t really about second-hand smoke...
Another freedom lost...!
Not as many taxes to collect from e-cigs
Gotta keep people hooked on tobacco so the local governments can fund their favorite liberal programs.
London Mayor Boris Johnson on “passive” smoking.
The cigarette black market keeps their potential tax revenue as low as possible anyway.
The next ban will be a strict prohibition against putting anything cylindrical in your mouth.
Unless it’s a penis and you are a man, of course.
That’s because pot only emits pixie dust and actually improves the health of everyone around it. /s
Maybe they should load them with pot vapors.
Take it up with your Overlords, sissy-pants!
Filtered pole smoking in aisle two ONLY approved by the FERAL Government
Besides Big Government and Big Tobacco, the e-cig people also P.O. Big Pharma. It’s a much better smoking cessation tool than most of what they’re hawking at very high prices.
Exactly. Second hand smoke was always a lie and they always knew it.
I questioned a doc about E-cigs the other day.
While he said he doesn’t have enough info yet to recommend E-cigs to quit smoking, he was forced to admit that they are certainly better than smoking because they lack the tar and other additives.
As did we - it's always about control.
And how blatant is their admission now that it has nothing to do with the smoke. It’s the GATEWAY that matters to them suddenly, though they would all ritualistically laugh at the concept of a “gateway drug”. But gateway smoking device... That we’re supposed to take seriously ... And the media, of course, totally misses the irony.
“BECAUSE WE SAY SO, PEASANT!”
It took me a looooong time to quit smoking and E-cigs are the only thing that worked for me.
Same response from 3 of my docs this past week.
I started smoking at the age of 12 and have vigorously pursued the habit for 50 years.
Started the e-cig 38 days ago and have no desire to ever smoke cigarettes again. Time will tell.
The move to ban or tax e-cigs is all about lost revenue for the state and not their concern about our safety/health.
I musta missed that particular ariticle in that there ‘CONSTITUTION THINGY’ we’re supposed to have.
I quit smoking with them 1 year and 4 months ago. Only thing that worked for me too. I have switched to the refillable tanks and love them. I decided that if anyone anywhere ever says anything to me about it I will say it’s hash oil. lol That should put their panties in a wad.
