RICHMOND, Va.That's not smoke coming out of Cliff Phillips' mouth. But that hasn't stopped others from cringing, making remarks, waving their hands in their faces and coughing at the sight of the vapor from his electronic cigarette.
"They're just conditioned if they see you inhale and exhale something, it's got to be smoke and it's going to stink. ... They're not even smelling anything," said Phillips, a 61-year-old retiree and former cigarette smoker from Cuba, Ill.
Electronic cigarettes don't burn and don't give off smoke.

Thay have always been just plain Nazis.
That’s because it for many of liberals it was never about danger or health effects. It was about control. If they could get the government to control one facet of your life, and for you to accept it or at least resign yourself to it, it would be easier to get you to accept other controls in the future
I think bubble gum and chewing gum are nasty
and I hate stepping in it
and I hate smelling it
and I hate finding blobs of it stuck everywhere
and I think it is unsanitary
and I hope they ban it.
Could you imagine big libs like NYC mayor Bloomberg if he didn’t have all the taxes from tobacco. It’s the same with all these big government types, they scream about smoking, but if the public ever truly stopped buying smokes they’d be in a world of hurt. That’s the reason that smuggling cigarettes will get you almost as much jail time as dealing pot, sometimes more.
Next thing you know these people will start to think they can ban stuff like circumcision.
Oopps - nevermind.
their next arguement will be it sets a bad example for the chillrun ...
The truth is that smoking is not the issue for them, it’s the smokers.
They’ve always had the vapors...
when will the Nazi’s ban penis smoking? There are far more health problems associated with that behavior than E-cigaretts.
It's the same with MADD and drinking.
It’s never been about smoking, it’s about the left’s ability to control your behavior.
Those were banned years ago.
PING A LING
I use my e-cigarette everywhere I go.
I use it while working and during meetings.
I use it in front of my Sons.
I use it at the gun range.
I use it at restaurants (Except Applebee’s -they said if they didn’t know what it was, I couldn’t use it. NEVER an issue at any other restaurant).
I haven’t seen miles of corpses in my wake during my travels.
Thanks for the ping, JJ.
